The Hot Sardines bring big-brass excitement to Bard College's Fisher Center on Annandale-on-Hudson >> with their Holiday Stomp concert today, Friday Dec. 23. The Sardines, who played Bard's Spiegeltent in the summers of 2013 and 2014, blend holiday classics with New York, New Orleans and Paris jazz. Their set list includes Christmas classics like "White Christmas" and "Please Come Home for Christmas" along with lesser known tunes like Edith Piaf's "Le Noël de La Rue," Ella Fitzgerald's "Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney" and "The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy," according to press materials.

Formed by bandleader Evan "Bibs" Palazzo and lead singer "Miz Elizabeth" Bougerol, the group's sophomore album, French Fries & Champagne (Universal Music) comes on the heels of their critically lauded self-titled debut album, which was named one of iTunes' best jazz albums of 2014 and spent more than a year on the Billboard Jazz Chart, debuting in the top 10 alongside Michael Bublé and Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga.
