About the Show
The acclaimed philanthropic group, Holiday Express, is making a rare public appearance. A family friendly matinee at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center will feature professional musicians and singers on stage, as well as Santa, The Grinch, and other holiday favorites. The Holiday Express Band blends its unique mixture of traditional, gospel, and rock’n soul holiday music in a spectacular performance that will touch you with the spirit of the season.
All proceeds from the event will support the nonprofits mission to deliver the gift of human kindness to those who need it most. Now in its 26th season, Holiday Express is a traveling holiday party, a from-the-heart troupe of musicians bringing music, friendship, help and hope to those too often left out in the cold at the most special time of the year. The band normally plays far from the limelight, in sometimes desperate circumstances, and all for absolutely no pay. Made up of more than 100 of the best musicians on the Jersey Shore, the Holiday Express volunteer musicians will play this year in 100 shows between November 6th and Christmas Eve. At each event, the musicians along with several dozen support staff, will deliver not only music, but, clothing, food and fun to adults and children in need, including veterans, the mentally and physically challenged, individuals in addiction and recovery programs, the isolated and the homeless.
