Hometown Christmas Tickets
Details of Hometown Christmas and the Ticket Luck value
Hometown Christmas features a performance by Mr. Jack Daniels Original Silver Cornet Band that will stir and uplift holiday memories, transporting its audiences back to a once glorious era of more then three decades back with its old melodies, and charming concertgoers of all ages with its traditional rock and pop appeal. This band is a wonderful re-creation of the small-town band formed at the turn of the twentieth century in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Created by David Fulmer, it did some of its earliest recordings in 1972, and only a few years later, began touring and has since been entertaining crowds in concert halls all over the US, as well as Canada.
Currently based in Franklin, Tennessee, they have also been delighting fans with presentations at music educator conferences, music festivals and at private and civic events with their virtuosic musicianship and joyful style. This musical act is so much more than a mere concert band since its performances are really a time traveling excursion into that time when life was much less hurried; a time when people spent their warm sunny summer evenings in the park with a picnic supper, where the fellowship of neighbors and friends, alongside the band music sound. It is this time that their shows aim to transport their audiences into, making Hometown Christmas tickets just what so many of us need around holiday season.
The original version of Jack Daniel's Silver Cornet Band that is soon to bring its charms at Hometown Christmas played between 1892 and 1914. Its present day version however, was created by David Fulmer who wrote as well as performed the show posing as the Perfesser for several years. Their performances have been simply described to 'speak to simpler times' and that is what their appeal really sparkles in. A member of the band since 1991, Bernie Walker, explained that the group's modern version was formed by David Fulmer when he came across a faded photograph of the original band taken at the turn of the century at Jack Daniel Distillery. This photo inspired him beyond words, making him want to re-create the magic of this small band in old Lynchburg. Fulmer, who is an accomplished actor, musician and advertising producer prepared to get the band together, rocking live crowds all over again. With the help of orchestrator/arranger Greig McRitchie, he put together some recordings while the band taped a small TV special for PBS. By 1978, the show was scheduled to take a promotional tour, which really brought it back.
The group comprise of thirteen members and instruments including four cornets, a tenor horn, two alto horns, baritone, drums, tuba, banjo, mallet percussion and of course the conductor. The band members dress up in period attire, representing town folk from the Lynchburg at the turn of the century, and play music from a broad range of genres such as pop tunes of those times like Camptown Races and After the Ball, along with some light operatic/classical pieces and some traditional jazz. With such a variety of genres, they really present quite a flavorful show, which is just what one looks forward to at a Hometown Christmas concert. Walker has also written some musical arrangements often performed by them.
The band has taught at educational clinics as well as in master classes featured at music conferences such as the three-day Indiana's Music Educators Association conference where the band was a headliner in early 2013. Generally their audiences find their shows quite entertaining and always getting impressed by the exceptional caliber of talent and musicianship exhibited in the shows. Most of these people are really just charmed by the nostalgic nature of the performance and its relaxed, laid back vibe.
Among their biggest hits are Everybody's Doin' It, After the Ball, Jovial Jaspers, Rockey Top, Long Way to Tipperary, Go Tell on the Mountain, Entry of the Gladiators, HMS Piafore Meadley, and I Dreamt of Jeannie with her Light Brown Hair, among others. This is a heart-warming, truly one-of-a-kind performance you just cannot miss, so grab Hometown Christmas tickets and celebrate the holidays like never before.
