‘Tis The Season For Ronnie Spector To Spread Holiday Cheer With Her “Best Christmas Party Ever!
Performing as ‘Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes’ for the first time since the 1970s
Iconic singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ronnie Spector absolutely loves Christmas, and she’ll ring in the holiday season once again when her spirited multi-media show Ronnie Spector’s Best Christmas Party Ever! comes to City Winery.
Ronnie Spector’s Best Christmas Party Ever! is a raucous, rocking, and intoxicating blend of her Christmas classics, Ronettes hits including “Be My Baby,” (recently named by Billboard Magazine as the #1 Greatest Girl Group Song of All Time) “Walking In The Rain,” “Baby I Love You”, cult gems from her back catalog, a splash of doo–wop, and plenty of Ronnie’s inimitable off–the–cuff commentary. As The New York Daily News said “Go and experience the ultimate sonic stocking stuffer!”
As an added treat for the holidays, the Beehived Bad Girl from Spanish Harlem will perform as ‘Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes’ for the first time since the 1970s.
The New York Times raved: “It’s hard to think of a more appealing angel to welcome the season than Ms. Spector.” For three decades, Ronnie’s Christmas show has been a cherished holiday tradition, with a song list that includes her definitive renditions of “Frosty the Snowman,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.” Both “Frosty” and “Sleigh Ride” dominate the airwaves at Christmas time and are perennials on ASCAP’s list of the Top 20 Most–Played Holiday Songs for the past decade. Ronnie’s Christmas songs have been heard in hit movies such as Good Fellas, Joy, and Jingle All the Way.
For Ronnie, her upcoming holiday shows are the latest highlight in a current stretch described by People Magazine as a ‘Victory Lap’ for ‘The Original Rock Queen.’ Spector’s busy 2017 has included the release of ‘LOVE POWER’, her first single recorded with The Ronettes in decades, a commanding performance at Lincoln Center, an appearance on FOX-TV’s Good Day New York, a Main Stage performance at SF Pride and more. NPR included Spector’s 1964 debut at #20 on their 150 Greatest Albums of the Rock Era, Made by Female Artists, and Spector was presented with the Legend Award by The Woman's International Music Network at their «She Rocks Award” ceremony.
Like the San Francisco Chronicle proclaimed „If it takes Christmas to make Ronnie Spector come out and play, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.“
