It's officially the holidays when its time for the annual ROB MATHES CHRISTMAS CONCERT! Two
concerts only, Friday, December 21, and
Saturday, December 22, 8pm, at the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College.
Joining Rob Mathes on stage will be his amazing all-star band including
favorites Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night
Live) on drums, Joe Bonadio on percussion, Will Lee (David Letterman Show) on bass, Bill Masters on guitar, Rick Knutsen
