Glen Burtnik announces Xmas Xtravaganza lineup



It has been a tradition of Glen Burtnik’s Xmas Xtravaganza charity concerts that the lineup is never advanced ahead of time. But as someone once said — I don’t know who, but I know I’ve heard the phrase before — some traditions are made to be broken.

Burtnik has announced the lineup for this year’s show, which takes place Dec. 23 at the State Theatre in New Brunswick. Performers will include Burtnik’s band The Weeklings, along with the following: Marshall Crenshaw, Remember Jones, Richard Barone, Kasim Sulton, Tony Shanahan, Jigs Giglio, Tom Brislin & Spiraling, Reagan Richards, Emily Grove, Erin Hill, Nancy Sebastian, Jillian Rhys McCoy, Bre Cade, Brielle Von Hugel, The Barefoot Strings, Anjelia, Don Dazzo, Chuck Buck, The Post 2016 Election Xmas Choir, Patti Maloney, Fawn Segerson, Jacquita May, Michelle Petrie, Kayla Hutchins, Joanna Burns, Alicia Van Sant.

Some of the proceeds will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Elijah’s Promise.

Burtnik has presented Xmas Xtravaganzas at various locations, most years since 1989. The show has certain traditions, such as Jigs Giglio’s dance interpretation of “The 12 Days of Christmas” (see below).
