"DPAC has become famous for its great Holiday concerts and special events. To land Manheim's newest Christmas show is great news for fans of Chip Davis and this legendary show. With DPAC's best in the region sightlines and state of the art sound, seeing Manheim at DPAC will be unlike any show this attraction has ever performed in the Triangle," said Bob Klaus, GM for DPAC.
Grammy® Award winner Chip Davis has created a show that features the beloved Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with dazzling multimedia effects performed in an intimate setting. The spirit of the season comes alive with the signature sound of Mannheim Steamroller.
From his unlikely base of operations in Omaha, Nebraska, Davis has sold over 40 million records – 27 million in the Christmas genre– making the group one of the top 50 biggest selling musical artists of all time and THE biggest selling Christmas artist of all time. He’s produced hundreds of sold-out Mannheim Steamroller concerts around the world, and his American Gramaphone record label stands as one of the most successful independent music franchises in history.
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. Spanning the group’s entire Christmas catalog, the album includes “Joy To The World,” “The First Noel,” “Winter Wonderland” as well as “The Christmas Song” featuring guest vocalist Johnny Mathis.
All told, Davis has created a remarkably varied body of work: he has written, arranged and recorded over 35 albums, is the author of five books and creator of an entire line of food and bath products bearing the Mannheim Steamroller name.
