Rubblebucket's horn section
Landlady's Adam Schatz adds, "I believe the true greatness of the holiday season is that, amongst the madness of commercial oppression and Mariah Carey, we are forced to consider and value those we call family. This show is about those considerations and values. The Landlady Holiday Spectacular is about coming together and being an extraordinary sum of our own parts, because it is surely worth doing that at least once a year."

Hungarian-born singer/songwriter János Horváth plays under the name Ultimate Yanó. His first Christmas single is called "Christmas Every Day", you can hear it via Soundcloud.
The song was inspired by the classic American wall to wall sound from the 60's (for example we love A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector (1963)).
Regarding the influence, Horvath said, "I wanted to record in this style for so long and by now I had the courage to do it, just for fun. People might think I'm just a dance artist but I'm more than that, I have lot of sides and I can easily find myself in many styles, but anyway I don't feel I should prove anything to anyone, but myself. I kept the lyrics as simple as possible, but I tried to avoid of being to cheesy, but I also put my thoughts into it. I hate that people can only love and go crazy in the Advent season, we should be kind to each other every single day and it only depends on us, I hope at least a few out there get my message."

Winner of the 6th Season of NBC's America's Got Talent, Logan County's Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. released his Christmas-themed album Christmas Made For Two last year (2013) ... but for some reason they are marketing/reminding us about it.
Perhaps it is because he's currently on tour. Please check his website for the latest tour dates.
