Get ready for an evening of “hot” holiday songs when The Hot Sardinesreturn to the Berlind Theatre! All your favorites are here—Rudolph, Santa Claus Got Stuck in my Chimney, The White Cliffs of Dover, and more. The Sardines remain “red hot,” and everyone is hopping on their bandwagon to experience the “Sardine Sound”—a blustery brass lineup, layered over with a rhythm section lead by a stride piano, tied together with a one-of-the-boys frontwoman singer with a voice from another era. You won’t be able to resist the temptation to jump in and sing along!
