Hey everyone! I'm excited to announce I'm back with my "Christmas Tune of the Day" for 2017. I've done it the past few years but only posted the videos to Facebook- this year they will all be on YOUTUBE!!

Here's how it works- I post new videos of popular holiday songs each day from December 1st through Christmas Day. I do solo arrangements, multi-sax and multi-instrument groups, and will feature some special guests this year. Please subscribe to stay up to date! I'll also be updating this thread each day with the day's video.

I am compiling all of the videos right here in the 1st post- check them out!!

Very nice, got me in the Christmas mood straight away! I love that song as well, so many great Christmas songs I'd love to play all year round and that's one of them.

Could only be better with the Xmas jumper and the dog.....

Off Christmas shopping today! Got the Santa hat with "Happy Holidays" on it, and hitting the stores.

Thanks for helping with the mood, dude!

Thanks so much! I love Christmas music (obviously) and that one works so well as just a great tune. And for my dog, well, she said she doesn't want to be in any more videos!
