Tuesday, December 10, 2013 3:10 AM
Get ready to rock your Christmas socks off with some incredible holiday jams provided by honky-tonk and multi-genre- band, Trailer Trash. The band will be performing at the Chatfield Center for the Arts on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Six Mile Grove will kick off the show to get audience members in the holiday groove for what is sure to be the most exciting Christmas show one will see this year. Six Mile Grove is a five-piece alternative country band based in Rochester. The band was founded in 1997 in Lyle, Minn., by brothers Brandon and Brian Sampson. Other members include Barry Nelson, John Wheeler and Dezi Wallace. The group is known for an Americana/alt-country/roots rock sound.
Trailer Trash promises a "honky tonky little Christmas" as it performs a not-so-traditional Christmas show, good for the whole family. Trailer Trash has drawn enthusiastic crowds at Lee's Liquor Lounge in downtown Minneapolis, playing there the first Friday of every month. Now in its 20th year, the band has turned generations of music lovers on to its brand of American roots, country, swing and rockabilly. The band is most comfortable playing traditional country music, but they can swing, rock and groove in a wide variety of styles from the American hit parade. Their contagious enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment onstage have earned Trailer Trash the reputation of being Minnesota's premier honky tonk band.
Frontman Nate Dungan defines the band's style simply as "honky tonk music," spanning the gamut from country and swing to blues and rock. The Trashy Little Xmas Show is a Twin Cities holiday tradition, and is a regular stop for thousands of holiday revelers.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children or $35 for a family pack (two adults and up to three children). All tickets are available at the door the night of the show or in advance at Chatfield Center for the Arts (507) 867-2927 or the Trailer Trash website www.trailertrashmusic.com.
