Band: OWA Tree Lighting Ceremony
Date: Saturday, Nov. 21 at 6 p.m.
Venue: Downtown OWA, 100 N. OWA Blvd. (Foley), visitowa.com
Those arriving in Downtown OWA for this entertainment destination’s Tree Lighting Ceremony will be greeted by colorful lights and beautiful decorations. Santa Claus himself is rumored to be making an appearance for this event. OWA will also be featuring a regional musical tradition that should spark the Christmas spirit with all in attendance.
For over a decade, the Joe Cool Trio has brought their “Charlie Brown Jazz Christmas” to eager audiences across the Southeast. Chris Spies (keyboard), John Milham (drums) and Chris Severin (bass) combine their extensive talents to give their live translation of jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack for the classic TV holiday special “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” With each passing show, these masters of improv have been known to take this familiar arrangement into new territories. The Joe Cool Trio will be giving Downtown OWA a small taste of what audiences across the Southeast have made an annual holiday tradition. Hopefully, this performance will serve as a harbinger for a possible installment of “Charlie Brown Jazz Christmas” at Mobile’s Saenger Theatre.
