Crash Test Dummies - Jingle All The Way Christmas show
In November the Crash Test Dummies will bring their never-before-toured holiday release to Canadian and American audiences.
The record, released in 2002 and recorded at the world-famous The Magic Shop in New York City was best described by prominent American journalist Martin Keller.
“There's more than a bit of delightful holiday camp and irony afoot in the Crash Test Dummies' Jingle All the Way collection, from Brad Roberts' slow-mo delivery of White Christmas - with its heavy Hammond Organ - to Ellen Reid's Patsy Cline take of O Little Town of Bethlehem, done in a convincing country-western style complete with pedal steel guitar. Still, there's serious business in the group's take on We Three Kings with the genuine Oriental influence of Ming Xioo-Fen's pipa playing, and Reid's readings of the traditional songs The Huron Carol and In The Bleak Midwinter are as reverent as standard Christmas songs get. Roberts' basso profoundo, on the other hand, is an acquired taste and he puts it to wickedly good use in Jingle Bells, which is delivered like a medieval chant or rugby cry that's certain to put the fear in jolly old St. Nick.”
The dynamic and engaging stage show will feature original members Brad Roberts, Ellen Reid, Dan Roberts and Mitch Dorge who will be joined as always by Stuart Cameron and relative newcomer, Leith Fleming-Smith, delivering songs from Jingle All The Way along with some of the bands greatest hits!
