It’s almost that time of year where people gather round the fireplace, sing Christmas carols, and bundle up in their wintertime wardrobe….unless of course, you are in Florida where there is a fairly good chance you can spend your Christmas wearing flip flops and socks (Kidding, we would never!). During this time of year, we often find ourselves performing for corporate holiday events. As you may recall, last year we performed at the Winter Wonderland for Disney’s Swan and Dolphin cast members. This year, we have been invited back (Woohoo!) to the cast member event and you better believe we will be making a list and checking it twice to ensure that this year’s performance is even better!
It’s sometimes hard to deviate from the holiday classics….they are tried and true. And…people expect to hear them year after year. While we honor requests and spin through the classics, we also like to throw in something fresh… something exciting…something that reminds us of the classics but with a new and interesting groove. In the words (and voice) of Missy Elliott, “Reeeeeeemix!” This season, we are scouring the web to find new and exciting holiday music to add to our collection. As we gear up for the season with some funky new holiday tunes, you may want to check out one of our favorite holiday remix collections.

And to those of you attending a corporate holiday party this year, we will leave you with this quote:
