Continuing in the tradition of their award-winning cds, In Your Garden, Live! At the Clubhouse and Safe & Sound, A Zucchini Holiday gives a fresh take on the ups and downs of the holidays, in a way only the zany Zucchini Brothers can deliver.
Produced and recorded by Sam Zucchini A Zucchini Holiday is original acoustic music, featuring Jack Zucchini (guitar), Steve Zucchini (keyboards) Sam Zucchini (drums and percussion) all of whom sing and contribute holiday harmonies. The songs on this CD were originally commissioned by Peter Lesser, the Executive Director of the Empire State Plaza Performing Arts Center (The Egg) in Albany, NY. and performed by the Zucchini Brothers at the sold-out premier holiday show at The Egg in December 2003. The Zucchinis were so pleased with the results they committed the songs to cd and will be returning to The Egg for a repeat performance this year on Sunday December 12th.
Originally from Saratoga Springs, New York, but now living in a clubhouse in ZucchiniLand, the Zucchini Brothers are well-renowned for their work in schools, theaters and festivals throughout the country, as well as their nationally syndicated weekly radio show "The Zucchini Brothers, Live! at the Clubhouse." (which can be heard anytime at www.zucchinibrothers.com). Winners of the NAPPA Gold Award and the Parents' Choice Gold Award, the Zucchini Brothers have received critical acclaim for their albums In Your Garden, Live! At The Clubhouse, Safe & Sound, and their collection of Music Videos. In addition to producing their own radio show, the Zucchini Brothers make numerous television appearances, and their CDs are played on radio stations throughout the country. "Zucchini" music bridges the musical gap between kids and adults, appealing to people of all ages.
Whether it's joy of the season ("Gonna Have a Real Holiday"), the simplicity of giving something from the heart ("A Homemade Gift"), the frustrations ("Holiday Grouch" & "I Can't Put This Toy Together"), contemplative thoughts ("Thank You Sunshine") or just plain zaniness (***hidden bonus song "Wintersong" track #6!!!) You're sure to enjoy this tribute to a very special season from The Zucchini Brothers-A Zucchini Holiday! Gather 'round the fire with your cats, dogs, grandparents and chipmunks, and let the Zucchinis entertain you!
