New York country duo The Sweetback Sisters bring their country christmas sing-along spectacular to Johnny Brenda’s on December 17th.  Now in its fifth year, the show has sparked a holiday album that features yuletide classics like “Winter Wonderland” along with some rare tracks including “Christmas Boogie,” a retelling of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” by the Davis Sisters.  The Sweetback Sisters and their full band (with local musician Ross Bellenoit manning the guitar) encourage crowd participation to make for a night of merriment and cheer.  Tickets and information can be found here.  Below, watch their video for “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”
