Holiday Jam With the Hegg Brothers Set for Dec. 20 in St. Paul
Thursday, August 25, 2011
Tickets are now on sale for the St. Paul edition of “Holiday Jam with the Hegg Brothers,” a musical evening of holiday favorites presented by Augustana College.
The concert, featuring Augustana alumni Jeremy Hegg ’94; Jon Hegg ’99; Noah Hoehn ’02; and Andrew Reinartz ’05, will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20, at the historic Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul.
The Hegg Brothers unveiled the Holiday Jam tour in 2009 and, for the past two years, have sold out venues throughout eastern South Dakota and northwestern Iowa. In 2010, they presented Holiday Jam in St. Paul for the first time, performing to a crowd of more than 500.
In an online review of the St. Paul concert, one fan wrote:
“…I was so happy to see they were bringing this holiday show to the Twin Cities, where I live. Musically, it managed to be sophisticated and super-hip while maintaining a reverence to the holiday genre. Jeremy Hegg's intelligent and humorous leadership, while restrained, still managed to add personality not usually found at such shows. In those senses, the Holiday Jam was as enjoyable as any other holiday show I've seen here, or more so.”
The Hegg Brothers band is a nine-piece ensemble featuring accomplished male and female vocalists, including several Augustana alumni: Jeremy Hegg, ’94; Jon Hegg, ’99; Noah Hoehn, ’02; and Andrew Reinartz, ’05. The Holiday Jam combines a mix of vocals with electric and acoustic guitars, dual keyboards, harmonica, horns, bass and a pounding percussion section for an unforgettable evening of classic and contemporary favorites that celebrate the spirit of the season.
