Twisted Groove Christmas 2020

I don’t often do holiday themed shows but this year, prompted by my girlfriend, we created a Lounge, Indie, Soulful Twisted Groove show. Dana loves Christmas music and collects all sorts of quality releases. We play tracks from Grandaddy, Esquivel, Cocteau Twins, Claudine Longet, Jimmy McGriff, Fountains of Wayne, Staples Singers, Rilo Kiley, Nick Lowe and more…
