Local drummer Kelly Yacco once again has banded together with a bunch of local musicians for Kelly's Christmas CD, 'Kelly's Christmas to give is to live.'     Not only can you enjoy your favorite Christmas songs performed by talented Central New York musicians, you'll  also be helping  local charities too. 

30 local musicians are featured on 'Kelly's Christmas to give is to live,' performing classic Christmas songs like 'Winter Wonderland,' 'Frosty the Snowman' and 'White Christmas.' Kelly told me he wanted to make the best sounding Christmas cd out there while helping local kids too.  The cd is $10 and proceeds go to The House of the Good Shepherd and the Utica East Side Mission Music Program.  Kelly is passionate not only about music but about helping kids with music instruction.  The cd is available at:  Michael T's, Top of the Morning, Hair Benders, Utica Coffee Roasting Company, Karaz Shoes, Swifty's Restaurant and Pub, Big Apple Music, Sugar Babes Cupcakes, O'Babys, Dick Smith's Tavern, Carmella's, Off Center Records, Shots, Hair Expressions, Oriskany Garage and North Utica O'Scugnizzo.  This isn't the first Christmas cd from Kelly Yacco.  Last year he recorded "Kelly's Christmas a time to believe."  Will there be a third Christmas cd?  Kelly says yes, one is already in the works.  If you'd like to hear the cd performed live, head to Aqua Vino Restaurant on December 23rd for a Christmas concert.   Doors open at 5pm and the show is 6-8pm.  $10 for adults, $5 for twelve and under.  Kelly told me they'll also being playing cuts from last year's cd too.
