Join us for "Christmas Dreaming, Holiday Dancing" on Saturday November 28th at 7:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Teachout Building at 500 East Locust Street in downtown Des Moines as we kickoff the Holiday season with a dancing good time. Musical director Jason Danielson and I have put together all new arrangements of favorite holiday melodies for your listening and dancing pleasure!

This won’t be any kind of sit-down Christmas snoozefest. but a Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree kinda thing! The evening is sponsored and catered by Sam and Gabe’s Italian Bistro, so you know all will be top notch. Advance tickets ($20) are available for purchase at Sam and Gabe's (8631 Hickman Road, 515.271.9200). You can also purchase $25 tickets at the door on the night of the event.

You and your guests will enjoy complimentary hor's d'oeuvres and a Premium Cash Bar PLUS a free copy of my Christmas CD titled

"Christmas Dreams"

The holiday season is my favorite time of year and I know It’s yours as well, so get out your finest holiday duds (I know I will at least four times during the show) and join us the Saturday after Thanksgiving for a Christmas celebration "Freddy Style."
