Record producer and composer Chip Davis has a grand idea of reviving classic Christmas songs and rearranging them into modern rock staples with an entirely unique treatment. The progressive powerhouse infuses several genres into its mix, including new age, neo-classical, and modern rock. This 2023, attendees can look forward to an incredible setlist packed with holiday hits, plus some new surprises. Since emerging in 1972, Mannheim Steam Roller has been creating ambient music with classical and modern rock leanings. But in 1984, Davis found phenomenal success upon releasing his first-holiday album, titled Mannheim Steamroller Christmas. The album comprises mostly rearranged holiday classics, giving them a modern twist. The stellar success of the debut holiday album was followed by A Fresh Aire Christmas and Christmas in the Aire. Soon, the Mannheim Steamroller began touring, which eventually turned into an annual run.
Mannheim Steamroller’s holiday albums have consistently topped the New Age and Holiday Albums charts. The debut and sophomore efforts sold over six million copies in the U.S., earning six-time platinum certifications. The third album, Christmas in the Aire, topped both the New Age and Holiday Albums and peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200. The album eventually sold over four million copies in the U.S., making it the group’s third highest-charting effort to date.
Aside from Christmas hits, Mannheim Steamroller has accomplished other notable efforts. Chip Davis has spearheaded the Fresh Aire Series, which regularly released new albums from 1975 to 2007. Many of the albums went gold after selling over 500,000 copies in the U.S. The 1990 album Fresh Aire 7 peaked at number 2 on Billboard’s New Age Albums chart and number 77 on the Billboard 200.
