The DePue Brothers - Wallace Jr., Alex, Jason and Zachary - won't be making a stop to perform in their hometown this Christmas season, but fans can get their fix of the longtime family band with a new holiday CD.
"When It's Christmas Time" features the brothers patented mix of styles ranging from the classical sounds they were bred on to the comic rock that's so much a part of their charm.
Each gets a chance to step forward. Alex DePue provides the humor on their standard "The Fat Man," while Wallace DePue croons the country ballad that serves as the title tune and the evergreen "The Christmas Song" (that would be the one about chestnuts roasting and all).
Jason DePue plays the lead on the lush "O Holy Night" and Zachary DePue swings out on "Winter Wonderland."
It's not only the brothers who get a chance in the spotlight. Banjo player Mike Munford is featured on a "Medley of Carols" and percussionist Don Liuzzi is in the forefront on "Pat-a-Pan."
Munford also plays lead on the classical rendition of 'Ding Doing Merrily on High." That classical inclination also comes out on "Jesu, Man of Joy's Desiring."
Another traditional song "Good King Wenceslas" gets characteristic uptempo "Classical Grass" treatment .
The CD at Finders Records in downtown Bowling Green as well as on iTunes and online.
