They say you learn something new every day. Last Saturday at the Gallo Center for the Arts, I learned enough to carry me through the holiday weekend.

For example, I learned that Mannheim Steamroller’s live holiday tour is, at 35 years, the longest running consecutive tour in music industry history. The group has sold over 41 million albums, outselling artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.

Walking out of the Gallo Center, I understood why. Accompanied by Vegas-level lighting and special effects, Mannheim Steamroller’s music ushered us into the holiday season in extremely grand fashion.
