  1. Listen The New Standards 8th Annual Holiday Show

    Dec 23, 2014

With eight years under their belt, the New Standards Holiday Show has become Twin Cities tradition. Year after year, the New Standards’ Chan Poling, John Munson Steve Roehm delivery a Holiday Show like no other. They say it best: “Audiences have come to expect a show that combines swinging renditions of classic holiday tunes with a smattering of irreverence and a healthy sprinkling of spectacle.”

It’s the surprise guest appearances that really rouse the crowd. Artists like the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, Dessa, Jeremy Messersmith, Chris Koza, Aby Wolf and many, many more all made appearances at this year’s State Theatre spectacle.

Enjoy streaming full audio of the eighth annual New Standards Holiday Show above and a photo gallery by Twin Cities photographer Steve Cohen below. As per tradition, The Current will air the eighth annual New Standards Holiday Show on Wednesday, Dec. 24 from 6-8 p.m. and again on Thursday, Dec. 25 from 8-10 a.m.
