Bill Kirchen & Too Much Fun - 2010-12-16 - Northampton, MA

Bill Kirchen & Too Much Fun
"Bill Kirchen's Honky Tonk Holiday Party"
Iron Horse Music Hall, Northampton, MA

Audience recording, very good quality
mp3 @ 192 kbps

Getting in the Holiday spirit now, here's the irrepressible Bill Kirchen once again, with his Too Much Fun Trio doing one of his "Honky Tonk Holiday Party" shows from a few years back. It of course features the fantastic guitar mastery of Kirchen in a fun mix of not-so-traditional holiday songs (such as 'Truckin' Trees for Christmas', 'Reindeer Boogie', 'Silent Surfin' Night', and 'Daddy's Drinkin' Up Our Christmas') and his own new and old classics (such as 'Rocks Into Sand', 'Too Much Fun', 'Semi-Truck', and 'Hot Rod Lincoln') done as only he can. A really fun holiday show featuring one of the greats.
