For some of us, the holiday season means queueing up “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” with its soundtrack composed by Vince Guaraldi. Over the course of his career, Guaraldi is most closely associated with his work for the Peanuts films. The jazz musician’s piano plays like a whimsically alinear accompaniment to the cartoon boy and his dog.
On Friday, Nov. 8, musician John Shipley leads his trio through their take on the songs of Vince Guaraldi. One of the founding members of the band, Hiroshima, John Shipley calls western Nevada his home, giving the area the chance to see the storied and oft-collaborating musician perform in the intimate Saint Reno.
Tickets are $10, with the performance being a benefit for homeless veterans. Those purchasing two adult tickets will also receive a free child’s ticket for the show. Tickets are available at Recycled Records and at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/john-shipley-trio-tickets-67906461053
Come start the holiday season off with the John Shipley Trio performing those songs from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and other seasonal Peanuts classics.
