The music group Twelve-Twenty Four is starting their 8th year of area performances. The group recreates an evening with the music of the Trans- Siberian Orchestra, a band known for their Christmas concerts heard in sold out stadiums throughout the U.S. during the holiday season. The music combines the edge of a rock band with the soothing sounds of an orchestra. Twelve-Twenty Four performs their songs within the context of a story, complete with an on stage narrator, angel, four- piece string section, choreographed dancing, and full-scale concert lighting and sound. The band creates an atmosphere that celebrates the magic of Christmas, reminds us of the reason for the season, and truly touches the hearts of the audience. This production appeals to family members of all ages, and their low ticket prices allows everyone in the community to witness a large production scale show not easily forgotten. Twelve Twenty Four's local venues spread the joy of Christmas throughout the surrounding states- starting as early as Thanksgiving weekend. The more intimate venues played provides personal contact with every member of the audience. The band considers itself a family, and the relationships formed in the band are easily seen in the amount of FUN they all have onstage! Twelve-Twenty Four consists of musicians coming from a diverse group of various well known local bands, each with extensive musical backgrounds. The band members are delighted to have been in communication with the actual Trans-Siberian Orchestra, who have personally enjoyed Twelve-Twenty Four's 1st year DVD.
