Charlie Brown Christmas Tribute from Jeffrey Butzer and T.T. Mahony
December 19th - Monday; 8:00pm
Earl Smith Strand Theatre
Marietta Square


Generations have grown up with this evergreen Christmas tradition, and the years show no sign of diminishing its universal appeal, owing in no small part to its classic soundtrack, composed and performed by Vince Guaraldi and his trio. For each of the last eight years, Atlanta musicians T.T. Mahony and Jeffrey Bützer have brought this classic soundtrack album to life for southeastern audiences, and have been met with strong community appreciation and support. For many, it has become a Christmas tradition in its own right.


Opening the show will be Bützer’s ‘regular gig,’ Jeffrey Bützer and the Bicycle Eaters, followed by Chad Shivers and the Silent Knights and their Beach Boys Christmas Tribute.
