An all-star lineup -- including David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Money Mark, Joshua Redman, Sinkane and the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years -- takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. Learn More

A very enjoyable evening of Sinatra music. My husband and I both liked that some of our favorite Sinatra songs that were non Christmas were also included. It was well rounded with a few stories and jokes. Good voices, good comraderie between the cast and the musicians were very talented. Our seats were great-- center orchestra.
Quotes & Highlights
“Put on your party gear and take a joy ride for two hours with a magnificent quartet of sterling performers: Luca Ellis, Jason Graae, Heather Lee and Beth Malone … _Christmas My Way _is a great big hit from start to finish, a Christmas present dressed to the nines and tied up with a bow!” —Broadway World
“[Ellis] does a crackerjack job of conjuring the famous singer’s voice and style, as well as his rascally charm. For those in the mood for an uplifting and consummately performed musical evening, this is a Christmas show that will likely be one that goes your way.” —EDGE Los Angeles
“What we have here is a seasoned cast of constantly working pros, who have joined forces and talents in this infectiously lovable holiday salute to Frank Sinatra.” —Tolucan Times
This show features some adult-style humor and is intended for mature audiences. It is not recommended for children age 9 or younger.
