Snopek returns to The Holiday Music Motel on Sunday December 11 for a 6 pm concert, this time to spread Christmas joy in a collection of works specific to the holiday season.
Early last spring, The Holiday Music Motel was thrilled to welcome famed rock-centric Sigmund Snopek III to perform in their on-site concert hall and recording studio. The audience delighted in his uncanny ability to combine virtuosic musicianship and humor into a performance of his original compositions that were ranging from serious art pieces to zany polkas about sausages and baseball. His refreshing spontaneity had the crowd uproariously in laughter as he floated between keyboards, a variety of flutes, a vintage harmonium and a 12-foot Alpine horn that echoed throughout the city. That’s right. Alpine horn in downtown Sturgeon Bay.
What’s next? Welcome a man obsessed by the Christmas holiday – his entire Milwaukee apartment enshrines a metropolis of miniature villages complete with working trains, skating rinks and spinning trees.
The Snopek Christmas Concert will highlight works from his 2002 release, “Christmas,” where serious renditions of holiday classics like “Little Drummer Boy” and “Coventry Carol” stand juxtaposed to Siggy’s delightful musical lunacy prominent in songs such as “Pumpkin Pie Polka,” “Turk The Turkey” and “Christmas Cookies” which features an uptempo catalog of everyone’s favorite holiday sweet treats.
This show will start earlier than usual, at 6 pm with an opening reception at 5:30 in the lobby, where concert goers can mingle prior to show-time. Beer and malt-beverages will be available for purchase at the show. Tickets are a mere $10 each and can be reserved through the Website: HolidayMusicMotel.com or by calling the motel direct at 920.743.5571.
