Get Ready to Rock With The Yule Logs

Christmas and Hanukah can co-exist, especially if the world's greatest Christmas and Hanukkah Rock 'n Roll band, The Yule Logs, has anything to say about it. The band will be releasing their sophomore album, Walked With a Reindeer, on November 9. Whether you have seen them playing the local community center, elementary school or dive bar, The Yule Logs' holiday enthusiasm is truly contagious. After their self-titled debut album last year, the holiday season would not be the same without the mistletoe glee their music leaves you with.
Lead singer Marty Parker elaborated about the origins of the band, saying "We were sick of our parents absolutely hating our bands. We wanted to be in a band that our grandparents, as well as our friends, would actually want to listen to", and this band will immediately cast the holiday spirit on you."
The Yule Logs revel in the sounds of British Invasion, Motown, and '60s California beach blanket pop. With lush four-part harmonies and jangling electric 12-string guitars, The Yule Logs come correct with a blend of original holiday tunes, tastefully reworked holiday standards and obscure gems from Christmas Past. Somebody get me an egg nog, stat.
