Chicago native, Chris Colletti, broke onto the music scene here more than twenty years ago and brings a fresh approach to the music of the Big Band Era. His style and lyric interpretation take you on a journey back to a sweeter time, a simpler time when a song and its lyrics really meant something. They touched us, many times so deeply that we will forever hold them close to our hearts. Please join Chris as he performs the holiday songs of our lifetime, bringing Christmas memories to life again, and creating new ones.
