Gallery: Pics from the Tin Roof’s Big Xmas Gigs

Merry Christmas and all that jive! Here’s a big gallery of snapshots and action pics from our favorite holiday-themed shows at the Tin Roof this month.

Atlanta’s Chad Shivers and the Silent Knights shared the stage with Silver Bells early in December. Top-notch guitarist Shivers and his combo performed the Beach Boys’ Christmas album and the Ventures’ Christmas album, each in their entirety.

Local holiday pop-rockers Sliver Bells performed selections from their forthcoming album It’s Christmas Everybody (their successful Kickstarter campaign was in full swing this month).

A ton of musicians and vocalists got together for the annual Jinglebang! showcase on Dec. 17. Everyone performed classics and Christmas-themed originals, including Xmas Tree Farm, Shelly Simon, Lindsay & Beattie, Greg/Ellen/Andrei, Brett’s Bell(e)s, Montauk, Maya & Tyler, Loni’s Xmas Cat Explosion, Lily Slay, Silver Bells, Lindsay Holler, and others.

Billed as “Christmas in the Drunk Tank: A Pogues Tribute,” the showcase on Dec. 21 featured Celtic tunes, Irish pub faves, and a slew of songs by the U.K. band the Pogues. Funds benefited a Toy Drive for TriCounty Family Ministries. Performers included Moonlight Ale, Laura Jane Vincent, Lauren Bevins Cahill and Matt Cahill, Johnny Puke, the Bevs, Tha Harrows, yours truly, and special guests.

Happy holidays!
