'Mr.Christmas', Chandler Travis & The Darlings' Simon Ritt.

A great night for an important cause hosted by an incredibly entertaining cast of characters. The Cape Cod’s Chandler Travis holds his annual benefit tonight, and as I enter the door I’m thinking what a cool example of the closeness of our very diverse entertainment scene.

The Classic Ruins, Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents (“I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”), Boston Blues Society Challenge Winners Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers, the Weissonauts, Miriam, Merrie Amsterburg, Jen Kimball, Shaun Wortis, Bird Mancini (Darlene Love’s “Baby, Please Come Home”—there’s even a floor mic for their holiday ankle bells!), Soul-screamer Barrence Whitfield (!), Stomper Sal Baglio (“Run Run Rudolph”).

 The Darlings doing their Americana “Mele Kalikimaka,” and Livingston Taylor invoking his homespun holiday spirit on “My Perfect Christmas Day” and “Hush Hush the Baby.” What a blast! What a show! And everywhere Chandler keeps popping up onstage. I really enjoy his Philharmonic Trombone Shout Band doing “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” This is a true holiday party that really gives a new meaning to the Christmas Cheer; “Ho Ho Ho”      (Whatever that means).

  Another great Christmas Calvacade. The entire greater Philharmonic family rocked and then some. It Is universally acknowledged that Chandler Travis should be declared Mayor For Life of Christmastown

  It was a blast for The Darlings to again play with Rikki Bates, one of the best drummers around. And the highlight for them was backing up the great Barrence Whitfield on the Jimmy Donley song 'Santa, Don't Pass Me By'.   An excellent & seldom heard Holiday song that only a master of American Obscura like Barrence could dig up and dust off.

  The staff & owners of Johnny D's where fantastic, making everyone In the crowd or on the stage feel like they where at the place to be & over $3,400.00 was raised for The Somerville Coalition For The Homeless.

No surprise to those In the know that the secret guest band turned out to be THE TITANICS. They came on like a Runaway Hellbound Train opening up with'High On Drugs' and proceded to pound out one classic tune after another. They never sounded better and where a hard act to follow. But challenge only Inspires THE DARLINGS who put on an amazing show fueled by sheer determination and alcohol.  Desperate not to be upstaged by THE TITANICS earlier performance THE DARLINGS managed to bring the house down when, at the end of their show, they set their Instruments (and almost themselves) on fire during a Country-Rock take on JIMI HENDRIX'S version of THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER. However by evenings end most of the audience was too drunk and stoned to remember the next day much of what they had witnessed the night before...
