On Stage with Alison Scott
We rocked the house last night at “Alison Scott’s Soulful Christmas”, a holiday tradition for fans across the midwest. The wonderful experience started from the moment our directors, cast & crew walked in the door. Michael helped set the stage and warm-ups ran smoothly as well. Alive & Kickin was in the house and we were ready to shake the rafters as Alison’s guests.
All of us were blown away by the show’s beautiful mix of real soul music and Christmas cheer. It’s true, that audiences can’t get enough of her flavor. Alison had great new original holiday songs mixed with creative reinterpreted classics, and touching real life Christmas stories. We accompanied her on several songs and also performed a few Alive & Kickin favorites as well.
We wrapped the show and it was a night we soon wont forget. Many thanks to our musician friends, new fans, superfans who came to see us and our invaluable volunteers!
