The world’s greatest Christmas and Hanukkah Rock ‘n Roll band, The Yule Logs’ sophomore album,Walked With A Reindeer is available for purchase. Whether you have seen them playing the local community center, elementary school or dive bar, The Yule Logs’ holiday enthusiasm is truly contagious.
Walked With A Reindeer is chock-full of the pop punch/tongue-in-cheek attitude that has made The Yule Logs an eggnog-chugging holiday free-for-all. Fans still dancing the “Hanukkah Mambo” and humming “Christmas Is Lonely When You’re A Jew”, from their previous album, will be fast to add these 13 smokin’ hot cuts to their holiday lexicon.
After their self-titled debut album last year, the holiday season would not be the same without the mistletoe glee their music leaves you with.
Formed in the University town of Chico, California, the boys have been topping Christmas trees and lighting the Menorah of rock since 2005. The Yule Logs are made up of Marty Parker, vocals, Kirt Lind, bass, Maurice Spencer, guitar, and Jake Sprecher, drums.
“We were sick of our parents absolutely hating our bands,” said Parker. “We wanted to be in a band that our grandparents, as well as our friends, would actually want to listen to.”
The Yule Logs revel in the sounds of British Invasion, Motown, and ’60s California beach blanket pop. With lush four-part harmonies and jangling electric 12-string guitars, The Yule Logs come correct with a blend of original holiday tunes, tastefully reworked holiday standards and obscure gems from Christmas Past.
