RHAN WILSON presents AN ALTARED CHRISTMAS
Rhan Wilson has posted a clip from last year's An Altared Christmas Show. Christmas songs in minor keys. I went for the first time last year and Wendy and I are going again this year. This clip features one of Santa Cruz's great wonders -- Patti Maxine -- singing, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus."
Rhan has his genius, his way of bending things to make for unexpected treats. He also has compiled a cast of truely wonderful entertainers. It is THE EVENT and most of the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz attends with hundreds of others inspired to Rhan's madness like a moth to a flame.

Rio Theater, Soquel Ave., Santa Cluz
No ukes in this video. But ukes are in the show.
Patti Maxine is well know for her lap steel playing.
It such a treat to hear her sing too.
