Topic: Christmas songs

Hi, I am looking for some great rocking Christmas songs.
I have a Christmas party coming up at a bar with a juke box. I usually play some tunes on it. Most of the good ones are two credits...if you can find them in the system but thats ok.
I know the Joe ones, and Ho Ho Hoey
but I am hoping to be prepared instead of spending a lot of time searching - although in the past that helped me when I didn't know many people at this party / have many people to talk to. Iknow more people now but I also want to ACE this thing big_smile so I can pat myself on the back afterwards.
anyway any cool Christmas tunes or versions you like.
prefer rock...but country and maybe one or two bluesy ones would be ok
thanks

Re: Christmas songs

just about anything with Brian Setzer and his orchestra .......... on the jazzy side I like Joe Pass' Six String Santa but this is probably too laid back for your crowd, you don't want to put them to sleep

Re: Christmas songs

Gary Hoey has a ton of great instrumental Christmas music - it was how I first heard of him.

"There's a lot of people that are in so much of a hurry to be, I guess, to be famous or that they don't want to take the time to learn to play and do all that.They'd rather just knock it down off a computer and maybe get on a game show and get famous..That's fine if that's what you want to do.
