Doug Aldrich (WHITESNAKE), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Dizzy Reed (GUNS N' ROSES), Jason Hook (ALICE COOPER) and Shane Gibson (KORN) are among the musicians who are featured on NORTHERN LIGHT ORCHESTRA's new album, "The Spirit Of Christmas", in stores October 20 via VSR/EMI CMG Distribution. Where classic rock meets the timeless music of Christmas, "The Spirit of Christmas" is guaranteed to be a recording entity that provides the very best in entertainment.
With orchestrated rock music featuring incredible guitar work, soaring vocals, and unparalleled musicianship, NLO succeeds in bringing back classic rock for the baby boomers as well as modernizing a beloved genre of rock music. "The Spirit Of Christmas" combines the talents of executive producer and longtime record executive Russ Regan (NEIL DIAMOND, ELTON JOHN and BARRY WHITE) as well as the incredible instrumental abilities of a number of renowned rock musicians.
The press has been especially drawn to the emotionally moving NLO experience filmed at Phoenix's Orpheum Theatre. Most recently, the orchestra performed in a laser-light, High-Definition, one-hour live concert featuring many of the performers from "The Spirit of Christmas" recording. This one-hour Christmas special will air on broadcast and satellite television including JCTV, Cornerstone TV, Daystar Network, TCT and NRB networks with potential airings on PBS affiliates as well. Also, in 2009 alone, 500,000 "teaser" sampler discs are being sent out and will be distributed free of charge at gas/convenience stores. Free autographed guitars, t-shirts and drum heads will also be awarded by many mainstream syndicated rock shows. In July 2009, over 25,000 sampler discs were distributed free of charge at Rocklahoma and 15,000 at NASCAR in Louisville, Kentucky.
