Joining the band this year will be special guest Dr. Elmo, performing his Christmas hit, “Grandma Got Run-over by a Reindeer”. The acclaimed philanthropic group, Holiday Express, features 75 professional musicians and singers on stage and blends its unique mixture of traditional, gospel, and rock’n soul holiday music in a spectacular performance that will touch you with the spirit of the season. Lead by Tim McLoone,the one and a half hour performance showcases the entertainment they’ve been providing the less fortunate in the tri-state area for the past 25 years.
Now in its 26th season, Holiday Express is a traveling holiday party, a from-the-heart troupe of musicians bringing music, friendship, help and hope to those who need it most. Holiday Express normally plays far from the limelight, in sometimes-desperate circumstances, and all for absolutely no pay.
Holiday Express is a non-profit organization that delivers music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the holiday season and throughout the year. Proceeds from the concerts will improve the quality of life for the 27,000 adults and children being served by Holiday Express at 100 charity events during the 2018 holiday season, including individuals with mental and physical challenges, veterans, individuals in addiction programs, those facing financial difficulties, children with serious illnesses and more.
