“All Alone On Christmas” A Winner In More Ways Than One

• December 1, 2012 • Comments (1)

I can’t think of anything better to get us in the holiday spirit than listening to our favorite men singing a Christmas song!  And for me, exploring the background of the song makes it doubly exciting. 

What a thrill it must have been for Christian, Daniel, Michael and Bobby to work with legendary rock icon “Little Stevie” Van Zandt!  For more years than I care to admit, I have been mesmerized by his performances on stage with Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band.  And who can deny his fabulous portrayal of Silvio on the Sopranos – epic!  But as I am doing research on the background of “Stevie” and “All Alone On Christmas”, I am learning so much about the man that he is. 

Having school-aged children, and having fought for years the tremendous cuts in public education – most especially in the arts,  Steven’s work with Little Kids Rock is near and dear to my heart.

  (“…music, and the Arts in general, [in public schools]are not a luxury!”  Steven Van Zandt

How thrilling that, as a direct result of working with Mr. Van Zandt, The Midtown Men had the privilege of joining the Little Kids Rock 10th Anniversary celebration, where Steven Van Zandt was honored with the Big Man of the Year Award. 

The following video shows the pure joy of that event for all involved, including The Midtown Men.

Whether you download “All Alone On Christmas” (remember, all proceeds from downloads in 2012 will go to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief) or purchase the CD (complete with a Midtown Men ornament)you are sure to be put into a Midtown Holiday frame of mind.

    I, too, have always loved Little Steven. He is just too cool for words! And for The Midtown Men to be working with him is so amazing, but somehow just right.

    Love this video – the joy on that stage is palpable – thanks so much for sharing!
