  • ...well we've tried all kinds of ways to put together a live show to stream here in 2020 and with the logistical challenges and new spike of cases and increase in lockdown measures, it's proven to be too risky and mangled. Took a feakin' pandemic to halt our string of 43 yearly wacko musical holiday performances. So instead, this year we'll try to post some videos to watch of previous years' yule-ish shenanigans... like these in our CJB YouTube playlist please comment a request for a song there and we'll see if the archives have any footage as such.
