Rock Around the Christmas Tree with SUZE

Christmas is a time for family and friends. And there is no better way to conclude the holiday festivities than with a show by Kingston jazz, funk, and blues band SUZE. The group will perform a one-set tribute to The Beatles for its final, festive performance of the year. 

The show is set for December 25, with the doors opening at 8 p.m. and the tunes starting at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door so don’t delay!

Get to know SUZE

These local rockers founded their band in the summer of 2007. With a musical blend of jazz, you can’t help but pick up rhythms of funk and vintage blues rock and roll.

Band members include: 

  • Adam McKinley with lead vocals and guitar
  • Jason Stefanski on drums
  • Brian Gildea with the bass
  • Adam Gabriel on lead guitar 

They have two albums under their belt: ‘When the World is Not Enough”  and “Sounds From Thursday Evening.” Both albums were recorded and produced at McCrindle Building Recording Studios with producer and engineer Jody Busch Sr. 

They have been nominated for Steamtown Music Awards and were voted 2015’s “Best Original Band” in Wilkes-Barre by the Diamond City newspaper.

Christmas Music Fast-Fact!

We know, we know. You’re excited about the show. But we wanted to leave you with some fun Christmas trivia that will surely impress your family and friends. 

  1. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was written in 15 minutes, earning Mariah Carey $60 million in royalties. 
  2. “Do You Hear What I Hear?” was written as a call for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.
  3. “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” was not appreciated by the Catholic Church because of the undertones of adultery. However, the song is about the boy’s father being dressed up as Santa.
