Christmastime is here again and so are the Sweetback Sisters with their 13th Annual Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular! This wildly popular show delivers a veritable explosion of yuletide splendor, with the Queens of Christmastime bringing their signature mix of modern nostalgia to a wide array of holiday classics. You can bet there will be trivia, prizes, and all the warm and fuzzy feelings you could dream of. After 2020 stole our holiday gatherings in proper Scrooge fashion Zara & Emily are delighted to be back on stage in 2021, so here’s to celebrating traditions and bringing communities together safely with song and joyful spirit!

The rollicking country swing of the Sweetback Sisters is as infectious as it is heartbreaking. Their charismatic charm harkens back to the golden era of both the silver screen cowgirl and the ersatz cowboy stars of local UHF TV kiddie shows. That whimsical exterior is wrapped around a core of deeply felt love for traditional country music styles and a palpable joy in playing and singing together. Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to The Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson, one of the band’s role models.
