December People will take the stage at 8 p.m. at The State Theatre.

December People is a band compromised of accomplished professional musicians. They will be performing beloved Christmas tunes in a Classic Rock format and pays tribute to a time of year that holds a special place in everyone’s heart. Robert Berry from ELP and the Sammy Haggar Band, Gary Pihl from Boston, David Medd from The Tubes, Mike Vanderhule from Aja Vu and Jake Foster, an International solo artist with Nusea Records, make up the touring band.

Robert Berry, founder of December People, formed the in order to play great music and bring a contemporary sound to holiday songs. As an experiment, the band posed a musical question for everyone: If great groups such as The Who, Boston, U2, ZZ Top, Peter Gabriel, ELP, Led Zeppelin, Sting and Santana all recorded familiar Christmas songs, what would they sound like? The answer is pretty simple: They would sound like Christmas with the unmistakable stamp of each of these timeless artists. This is the music December People has created.

The music of December People brings people together and provides a one-of-a-kind experience perfect for the holiday season. Not only are the sentiments expressed in the songs uplifting and positive, but in the hands of December People, the songs rock.
