Some local musicians have come together once again to put a “central New York twist” on a Christmas classic.
For five years now local musicians have teamed up to put together “Kelly’s Christmas,” with sales from the CD benefiting the House of the Good Shepherd, where Kelly Yacco works.
This year the group of musicians put together a video of their recording of Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas,” and although it’s not for sale, they say next year a two-song LP disc will be released along with another shareable video, and the LP sales will benefit the House of the Good Shepherd once again.
This year’s participants include:
Kelly Yacco: Drums & Djembe
Scott Henderson: Bass
Keith James: Piano/Keyboards
Max Scialdone: Acoustic Guitar
Zainep Abdelaal (Madame ZZ)
