New for the holidays, from Brady Rymer and the Little Band that Could! Revvin’ Up the Reindeer


It will soon be that time of year again, as the days grow short and the nights warm up to candlelight, good food, family and cheer. The season of high hopes (and high anxiety) is also the time when music fills the air.


This year, three-time Grammy nominated and nationally touring Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could releases a fresh album of 13 cheery, all-original holiday songs, Revvin’ Up the Reindeer. Brady’s music echoes holiday classics with exuberant instrumentation and arrangements.


In their ninth album for families, Brady and his band reflect the festive jumble of the season, with caroling harmonies, brass and bells. Every track is inflected with the band’s rootsy, feel-good sound, recalling beloved seasonal standards yet with Brady’s distinctively fresh and engaging style.


The title track is a 50’s rock ‘n’ roll romp, imagining Santa with a souped-up sleigh; the ska-beat “Holiday Jam” is a humorous take on the many ways we cope during the busiest time of the year; lyrical accordion embellishes the Klezmer-inspired “Rainbow Candles;” the hopeful sing-a-long “Christmas Wishes” radiates  with a children’s choir “The Fa La Las;” and the band rings out the old and swings in the new in raucous, Dixieland jazz fashion with “Baby New Year.” Indeed, whispers of holiday standards weave cleverly throughout, conjuring up the magic of the holiday season.


“The holiday season is my favorite time of year. It’s like the whole world is singin’, shinin’ and sayin’ hi!” says Brady. “After miles of twinkly lights untangled, menorahs lit with love and more than a few eggnogs poured, we couldn‘t be more excited to share these songs. I hope they’ll find a place on your family’s holiday playlist for years to come!”
Brady Rymer and the Little Band that Could will celebrate the album release with several all-ages concerts this fall, including the Music Center at Strathmore (Bethesda), the Sparta (NJ) Boardwalk, Growing Stage (NJ), and at libraries and schools. For details and updates, visit
