The Charlie Brown Jazz Christmas has become a holiday tradition in Mobile. Kids, families and music lovers flock to this concert every year to hear the mastery of Vince Guaraldi's classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas". The cameo appearance of Snoopy and Woodstock brings joy to those of all ages. The 8th annual show will feature the Joe Cool Trio with John Milham (drums), Chris Spies (piano) and Chris Severin (bass), followed by sets including New Orleans's own Leon "Kid Chocolate" Brown on Trumpet and Clarence Johnson on Sax who both played with Preservation Hall Jazz Band performing their favorite Christmas tunes.
A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the The Good Samaritan Center.
