This week Coupe DeVille joins hosts, Bill Heid and Bob Whitten to play some very special Christmas music. This band is known for their 50s and 60s style of music and put their very own unique spin on some Christmas classics. During the show Heid and Whitten are also joined by Store Manager James Traver for an “Item of the Week,” Senior Botanist Nick Huizenga for a gardening/seed report, and Aaron Fullan to give his own “Bait Shop Todd” rendition.
This variety show covers a buffet of topics and the audience has no idea where the show is going next.
“We do stuff like this all the time. These types of things are not out of the ordinary with this group. We have fun but we also really concentrate on sending a message,” said Bill Heid, owner of The Heirloom Market & Café.
Coupe DeVille was the main attraction throughout the show. Heid and Whitten presented the group with the challenge of playing some acoustic versions of some very traditional Christmas songs. Whitten goes on to point out that this band is used to playing popular 50s and 60s music with the support of their high-powered electric equipment.
When Heid and Whitten presented the challenge, Coupe DeVille gladly accepted. During the show, Coupe DeVille cranked out Christmas hits like “White Christmas” and “Little Drummer Boy.” To get them back to something more in line to what they are used to, they finished off their set with “Jingle Bell Rock.”
Whitten said, “We presented them with this contest, they took it, and they ran. I was blown away with what they gave us considering how far from their norm this was. I have always been a big fan of this band and I loved what they did with these classic Christmas songs.”
The Old Time Heirloom Hour is a variety show that will send its viewers in all kinds of directions but will generally center around one sound message or theme.
“They [Heid and Whitten] have a strange way of bringing you farther and farther from the theme and then before you know it, you have made a full circle and you are back to the point they were first making. I love the show, it keeps me on my toes,” said Tom Chrisman, the show's director of photography.
