O Holy Night - Carols for a Cure 14

"This show depends on a good band to make it fly musically, and this show is travelling with a seven
piece wall of sound. If I don’t mention them by name I’ll never forgive myself, so they are Nick
Williams (Conductor/Keyboard 1), Michael Borth (Associate conductor/Keyboard 2), Philip Coiro
(Drums), Matt Brown and Freddy Hall (Guitars), Mike Preen (Bass) and Brian Krock (Tenor/Alto
/Soprano saxes/Flute/Clarinet).

-Elliot Lanes  /

-Hedy Weiss / Chicago Sun-Times

Dirty Blonde

"The band (including Nick Williams, Marc Hogan, Doug Brush, and actor-musician Johnse Holt) is first-rate."

-Chicago Sun-Times
