King Blues Club & Grill in New York City on Monday, November 28th for a special showcase of their new holiday album, O Christmas Three. The band, who former President Bill Clinton recently called one of the "most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era," will be on hand for a listening party of the album and will also perform several of its highlights, including "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and "Rockin' and Rollin' on Christmas Day," a new song co-written by Lee Loughnane and John Durrill.
