A Very Herbie Christmas with special guest Sun and Rain

 

“Imagine if King Crimson, Traffic and Frank Zappa had dinner and drinks with Phish and moe., and that still wouldn’t quite cover what herbie is.” –Shinbone Magazine

Whatever herbie is, you can hear what the band is all about as it ushers in yet another installment of its annual holiday extravaganza on Saturday, December 9. Dubbed “A Very Herbie Christmas,” the show is in its 14th consecutive year and has become an annual tradition for the band and its fans alike. 

So, what can you expect?

herbie’s live show is fun, energetic and diverse. Says Fly Magazine, “Within the constraints of an hour and a half set, herbie manages to evoke just about every music style one could possibly imagine. Anywhere from Edgar Winter to ELP, Phish to Rush, Sublime, Steely Dan and beyond, the band takes an encyclopedic trip down the past 30 years of good music.” It is common for the band to mix original songs and cover tunes with stretched out improvisational passages and impromptu musical interludes. The band is truly in its element on stage. Past shows have included guest musicians, secret once-and-done cover songs, holiday music, visits from Santa Claus, contests, giveaways, and other assorted hijinks. 

There’s also plenty of herbie’s own blend of high energy rock, including material from its most recent CD release. Simply titled herbie, the album features thirteen of the best original songs written by the band over the years. 

Formed on the campus of Lebanon Valley College in the fall of 2000, herbie began to pick up steam on the Central PA scene in 2003, garnering lots of press, praise, and high profile shows. Not sure what to make of the band, the public typically grouped herbie into the “jam band” genre. The jam band tag ultimately gave herbie some recognition when the band won back-to-back “Best Jam Band” honors at the Central PA Music Award ceremonies in 2006 and again in 2007 (the only two years the Awards took place). In its later years, herbie has blossomed into an incredibly tight musical unit able to melt faces with its high-energy guitar rock and focused bass and drum grooves, while simultaneously exploring the inner reaches of its own musical soul and sharing it with its audiences all over the East Coast.
