Snowed In 2019

The show features winter/holiday songs and enough of a plot to stitch them together.  It’s Katie Gearty and Ben Bakken on vocals, Rich Manik on tenor sax and flute, Matt McIntyre on bass and guitar, Joey Hays on drums, and me on keyboards/music director.  Produced by Josh Campbell / Brilliant Fete.

The premise is that we are a heavy metal band, “Fjords of Ficus”, and we are snowed in at a country club : ) We discover a bunch of old holiday LPs and get into the spirit, but not before we attempt a metal version of “Carol of the Bells” and put on ugly sweaters.

Here’s the promo video!
