Grammy Award® winner and mastermind behind the group, Chip Davis will direct and co-produce the performances with Magicspace Entertainment. There are now two tour ensembles of Mannheim Steamroller to meet the continued and increasing demand for the annual holiday celebration. The shows will feature the favorite Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with state-of-the-art multimedia effects in an intimate setting.
In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that changed the entire music industry. Already a multi-platinum recording artist through its Fresh Aire series, founder Chip Davis decided to record an album of Christmas music combining the group’s signature mix of Renaissance instruments with rock & roll beats. The resulting album was a runaway hit and not only propelled Mannheim Steamroller to become the biggest selling Christmas music artist in history, but also one of the top 50 biggest selling musical acts ever (they’ve sold almost 40 million albums). The group’s annual Christmas tour has become a tradition right along with decorating the tree, exchanging presents and spending time with friends and family.
