Mannheim Steamroller Brings Christmas Cheer

The music of Mannheim Steamroller will rock Indianapolis into the Christmas season this Thursday, November 19 at the Murat Theatre Centre. Their quirky rock n’ roll beats mixed with classic renaissance instruments have become a holiday favorite since they released their first Christmas album 25 years ago. Get into the holiday spirit this Thursday as their North American tour makes waves in Indianapolis music. This is a concert not to be missed!

In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller changed the face of the music industry, for at least two months out of every year. When the bands creator, Chip Davis, decided to combine the bands innovative sound with classic holiday music, he knew exactly what he was doing. Before they knew it, the band had a runaway hit on their hands. Their album Mannheim Steamroller Christmas made them bigger than Santa and his reindeer every holiday.

They reached the top of the charts and sold more than 35 million records. The group earned a spot in music history as one of the top 50 biggest selling musical acts ever. And the sounds of their instruments have become as much a part of Christmas as decorating the tree, exchanging presents, and spending time with family and friends.
