As the Christmas holiday approaches, families are looking for fun and unique ways to celebrate the season. One terrific opportunity for getting in the holiday spirit is to join the Nelson family at Raue Center on Sunday, December 1st at 3:00 pm for a fantastic multimedia live concert experience.
"This is the fourth time Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, the twin sons of musical legend Ricky Nelson, will take Raue Center's stage," explained Miriam Naponelli, Marketing Director for Raue Center. "However, this is their first ever Christmas show! Their previous live multimedia entertainment event, Ricky Nelson Remembered, featured the beloved musical hits made famous by their father, Ricky Nelson."
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, along with the third generation of Nelson family hitmakers, will perform hits like "Holly Jolly", "Santa Claus Came to Town", and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" with the next generation of Nelson kids. "Matthew and Gunnar are a crowd favorite here at Raue Center for the Arts," added Naponelli. "They'll surely start the holiday season off with a Holly Jolly bang!"
The Nelson twins secured two Top 10 Billboard Christmas singles in the last two years, and now fans get to see their award-winning talent on the Raue Center stage. Their distinctive harmonies, Smothers Brothers-style comedy, and state-of-the-art large screen video feature will delight the audience with Christmas classics that will warm hearts and take fans on a sleigh ride through time.
“We are so excited to bring Matthew and Gunnar Nelson back to Raue Center with a holiday show that is based on over 40 years of music that our nation has loved,” said Richard Kuranda, Executive Director for Raue Center. “Their new show is a great way to kick off the holidays, and it’s going to be a wonderful holiday concert!” For more information, or to purchase tickets, contact:
