Thursday, December 19, 2013 - 7:30pm

The Louisiana Rhythms Christmas Party is Thursday, December 19th, 7:30 to 10:00 at the Eagles Club in Minneapolis. This annual event is an excuse for all the people who play the Eagles on Mondays and Thursdays to get together in various combinations and play some tunes. Often playing Christmas tunes, but just as often on favorites like Monkey Time (Major Lance) and the Pinegrove Blues (Nathan Abshire). Some Louisiana Christmas tunes that usually get played;

Please Come Home for Christmas - Charles Brown

Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt

We Want to See Santa do the Mambo - Big Jack Greer

Boogie Woogie Santa Claus - Mabel Scott

Got to Get You Under My Tree - Sonny Landreth
