Concert Series: Bruce Springsteen – Santa Claus Is Coming to Town


Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at The Honda Center in Anaheim, California on December 4, 2012. The Boss had special guests Tom Morello and Mike Ness. Given it was the holiday season, he performed his signature Christmas Song, “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” in addition to many from his new album, Wrecking Ball, and so many of his classics in a 3-1/2 hour amazing show! This will be the first of several videos from this absolutely breathtakingly wonderful concert…

Our Family Christmas Tradition

Every family has their own Christmas tradition. Making this sing-a-long became a signature moment for The Sallan Boys way back when they were still young and sort of cooperative! This is over a decade old but sings to me with memories as if it were yesterday. We sang to the great Drifters Fifties version of White Christmas.  I had a sore throat, but we still had a bunch of fun doing it!  We all still enjoy listening to it a lot. These are the memories you keep forever! Enjoy, laugh, and sing-a-long with us!

I think my rendition of Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love” is especially good.  Music tends to define every generation and now, that I have teenagers, I’m enjoying their different tastes in music, although I sometimes roll my eyes and cover my ears in discomfort.
