Mannheim Steamroller Christmas By Chip Davis

Sat., Dec. 22

In various press releases and articles, Mannheim Steamroller’s Chip Davis proudly recalls trying to shop his New Age Christmas concept in the early ’80s and meeting with rejection from all the major labels and distributors. Released in 1984, Mannheim Steamroller Christmas went on to sell some 9 million albums, proving the record label execs wrong (again). The Ohio-born Davis then developed a larger-than-life touring ensemble to bring the synth-heavy tunes to life. In 2009, Mannheim celebrated the 25th anniversary of that first Christmas album with a special two CD set that included its renditions of tunes such as “Joy to the World” and “The First Noel.” The live show is a multimedia extravaganza, which is a good thing, since these smooth jazz renditions of yuletide tunes will often put you to sleep. Tonight's concert takes place at 7:30 at the State Theatre. Tickets start at $10. (Jeff Niesel)

Bill Squire's Christmakwanzakah

Sun., Dec. 23

In what we assume is the attempt to be inclusive, comedian Bill Squire, co-host of the local radio program The Alan Cox Show, headlines tonight's event at the Agora that he’s calling Christmakwanzakah. Squire's comedy regularly touches on "his life as a step parent, divorce, dating and leaving the Mormon church in his early 20s," as it's put in a press release announcing the event. Comedians Al Jackson, Mary Santora and Ryan Dalton will join him for the performance, which takes place at 6. Tickets are $15 to $25. (Niesel)

Cavaliers vs. Chicago Bulls

Sun., Dec. 23

Much like the Cavs, the Chicago Bulls got off to such a dismal start this season that they've already fired their coach. Both teams have lost way more games than they've won and are currently locked in a battle for the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Sad to see such storied franchises sink to such lows. Regardless, it should be a close game when the two teams play each other tonight at 6 at the Q. Check the Cavs website for ticket prices. (Niesel)

Mark Reedy

Sun., Dec. 23

Veteran comedian Mark Reedy likes to claim Cleveland as his home, even if he wasn't born here. He's been nicknamed “Mr. Positive” because his set aims to uplift and inspire the crowd rather than degrade anyone or anything. Most of his material is based on his own experiences. He wants people to know that they always have a chance to start over — he grew up around the wrong crowd and managed to completely turn his life around. He performs tonight at 7 at the Improv. Tickets are $15. (Martin Harp)
