NORFOLK, VA - Get an early start on your "holiday mood" when Mannheim Steamroller brings their Christmas tour, The Christmas Music of Mannheim Steamroller, to Chrysler Hall on Wednesday, December 7th at 7:30PM. Created by Chip Davis, Mannheim Steamroller's signature sound is where classical and modern-day rock, acoustic and electronic music meet.  Celebrate the spirit of the season with the "18th century rock band" that has become one of the most popular and best-selling acts in the last 30 years.

From his unlikely base of operations in Omaha, Nebraska, Davis has sold over 40 million records – 27 million in the Christmas genre– making the group one of the top 50 biggest selling musical artists of all time and THE biggest selling Christmas artist of all time. He’s produced hundreds of sold-out Mannheim Steamroller concerts around the world, and his American Gramaphone record label stands as one of the most successful independent music franchises in history.

 

Since the groundbreaking success of Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, the band has released 16 more Christmas albums and compilations, including the popular Christmas Song, which features guest appearances by Johnny Mathis, Olivia Newton-John, and jazz legend Paul Winter, as well as 2008’s Christmasville featuring the music of How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
