Nothing quite says Christmas like the music of Mannheim Steamroller. The brainchild of composers Chip Davis and Jackson Berkey, Mannheim Steamroller has been churning out its version of “18th century rock-n-roll” in true Christmas fashion since 1984. Davis has built a virtual empire out of the multi-platinum selling Mannheim Steamroller and turned it into one of the most successful holiday brands in the world. Last holiday season, Davis commemorated the anniversary of his first holiday album by releasing Mannheim Steamroller Christmas – 25th Anniversary Collection, a two CD set featuring 25 of the group’s famous holiday classics. The Christmas Music of Mannheim Steamroller by Chip Davis toured over 70 cities. Mannheim Steamroller also participated in its fourth Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC this year and is in its sixth season at the Universal Orlando Resort, where Davis takes the helm of the orchestra in the “Grinchmas” live theater production. Mannheim Steam-roller makes a rare appearance at the Orpheum this Sunday.
