This was a special Roma di Luna Holiday show with the Chastity Brown Band opening. Thanks go out to the artists and to the Cedar for allowing these sets to be recorded. There were 3 tapers in attendance (AKG 414, Microtech Gefell & MBHO). The original material that Roma di Luna produces is always top notch but this particular show is worth checking out for the chilling renditions of "Silent Night" and "Stand By Me" alone. Trust me, you won't be disappointed by anything in between either. The Cedar was filled to capacity and I still wish more people would have gotten the chance to witness this great evening of music. Long live the Cedar.
