Christmas Party

A bit late but here’s our J&B Christmas song - a silly little rockabilly ditty.

RT2423:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm RockabillyBoomChickaBrent (comped from regenerations)
MIDI SuperTrack 2470: Piano, Rhythm RockabillyBoomChickaKevin

Have A Christmas Party

Intro

let’s have a Christmas party
let’s have a Christmas party
yeah we’re gonna invite nobody

It’s just gonna be me and you
It’s just gonna be me and you
hey, we’ll be the party of two

turnaround

gonna hang mistletoe everywhere
we’ll hang mistletoe everywhere
gonna let down my hair

We’ll dance around the tree
We’ll dance around the tree
just me me and my baby

Outro

Hi there J&B.

Wonderfully cool.

I'd much rather listen to this in the shopping mall than the tired old tracks we get every year.

Super backing, and Janice, you excel at everything you turn your hand to.

Loved the whole thing.

Merry Xmas.

ROG.

J&B,

What`s not to like! Having seen the video of Janice singing ( on Flod`s song creation post) I can picture some bopping going on while this was recorded.
Cool outro.
Merry Christmas!

Robert

Why can I just see dancing around the mic? Happy little tune!!

I wanted to write a Christmas song, but as much as I dislike Christmas, it may be better if I don't.

This was just so much fun! listen to it a couple of days ago but just now getting around to comment - danged flu bug!

This is just what I needed to cheer me up as I listened again. I love Rock-a-billy - got one or two somewhere in the process. I often think of the days I listened to Carl Perkins, early Elvis and early John cash songs. That deep guitar reverb is such a signature part of the sound.

Janice's vocal's are always among the very best on the site. This is just further proof. Great arrangement and production.

And Merry Christmas to both of you!

Alan

J&B, This is a good time Christmas tune and should make the playlist of all Christmas parties. Bud it sounds like you've got the not so distant cousins delay and reverb figured out. The backing forms the perfect framework for Janice's perfectly executed bluesy vocal. Great outro! Merry Christmas to you both, Tom

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.
