TAKE A TROPICAL HOLIDAY WITH
“A CALYP-SOUL CHRISTMAS” AT THE PLAYERS THEATRE
Sarasota, Nov. 20, 2015 – Put a star on top of your palm tree and trade your egg nog for a piña colada on Saturday, December 4, 2015, as The Players Theatre presents steel drum artist John Patti in “A Calyp-Soul Christmas.” “A Calyp-Soul Christmas” is a fun, upbeat take on many of the Christmas classics that we’ve come to know and love delivered by the tropical sounds and rhythms of the steel drum. Classics such as “Silent Night”, “I’ll be Home for Christmas” and ”Baby Its Cold Outside”, take on new life with silky saxophone, funky bass, smooth vocals and Patti’s melodic steel drum. These energetic grooves and new arrangements create a fresh Christmas sound unlike any other. This show offers a little bit of Christmas joy, island-style! The performance is scheduled to take place at 7:30pm on The Players main stage.
From Singapore to Key West, Manhattan to the Caribbean, crowds of all ages and nationalities have enjoyed John Patti’s performances. As a steel pan artist, John has blended genres and rhythms into music you might never expect to hear from the island-based instrument. The John Patti Project is known for expertly showcasing the one-of-a-kind island flair of the steel drum in musical acts for an intriguing and memorable performance guaranteed to get any audience dancing in their seats! Patti has shared the stage with several incredible artists such as Janet Jackson, Al Jarreau, Sheryl Crow, Les Paul, The Eagles, and Jimmy Buffet, among others. He’s performed in ports from Alaska, Hawaii, and the Caribbean islands, into Brazil and South America, down to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, the fjords and mountains of New Zealand to the ancient buildings of China and Japan.
Join us as we welcome this world class musician, as “A Calyp-Soul Christmas” brings you holiday warmth and cheer to put you in the tropical Holiday spirit!
