Mannheim Steamroller will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the Peabody Auditorium, 600 Auditorium Blvd., Daytona Beach.
The tour, now in its 27th year, is still met by sold-out audiences and was one of the top 20 concert tours in the nation last year.
This year Mannheim Steamroller's two touring ensembles will hold more than 90 performances throughout the United States.
Grammy Award winner Chip Davis will direct and co-produce the performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The shows will feature the favorite Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with state-of-the-art multimedia effects in an intimate setting.
In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that changed the sound of Christmas. Already a multi-platinum recording artist through its Fresh Aire series, Mr. Davis decided to record an album of Christmas music combining the group's signature mix of Renaissance instruments with rock & roll beats.
The resulting album was a runaway hit and Mannheim Steamroller went on to become the biggest selling Christmas music artist in history.
