This musical showcase features the talents of a multi-piece band playing Christmas classics and contemporary arrangements in signature and soulful sounds of Jeremy and Jon Hegg and friends. With the addition of renowned bluegrass, folk and jazz artist Jami Lynn and the return of multi-instrumentalist Joel Shotwell, this year’s show promises to be uniquely South Dakotan.
Holiday Jam is a long-running holiday tradition that continues to highlight new musical twists. This two-hour show features stories of the season, messages for the heart, and music to lift the spirits. This year’s tour again includes horns, sax, piano, guitar and percussion to round out the ensemble.
“Holiday Jam is quickly become a tradition in Aberdeen and this year will build on the success of previous years,” Paul Krueger, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish South Dakota said. “Besides an event that will entertain all ages, Holiday Jam allows us to create awareness about the important mission of Make-A-Wish and our vision to reach every eligible child in the state.”
