If you’ve ever listened to Christmas music, chance are you’ve heard Mannheim Steamroller. Four of the best-selling Christmas albums of all time are from Mannheim Steamroller, with two of the going platinum six times (the other two only went platinum three and four times). The reason is simple: Mannheim Steamroller makes great Christmas music, and they put on a great Christmas show.
Lucky for us Hoosiers, they are bringing their legendary show to Indiana. You can see Mannheim Steamroller LIVE at Emens Auditorium in Muncie on December 17th.
Here’s a little more about the group and the show:
From his longtime home in Omaha, Nebraska, Mannheim Steamroller creator Chip Davis makes innovative music inspired by the sounds of another age. This former teacher and jingle writer founded the music industry’s largest independent recording label, American Gramaphone, in 1974 when industry executives said Davis’ innovative 18th century instrumental rock sound would never sell. In addition to a Grammy Award, Davis is largely credited with establishing the New Age music category that revolutionized the making and marketing of holiday music. His first Christmas album was released in 1984; the album’s success made Christmas records a “must do” for all music artists. With more than 40 million total records sold including 28 million Christmas albums, Mannheim Steamroller founder Chip Davis is the #1-selling Christmas artist of all time.
