This time of year, it’s always fun to hear different artists’ interpretations of classic holiday tunes. They can take dramatic arrangements and scale them down or they can take simple production and pump it up. A little or a lot.
The brother duo For King & Country pumped it up a lot when they took on the sacred seasonal favorite, “Little Drummer Boy.”
On their Facebook page, For King & Country shared video from one of their concerts showing a live performance of the song, and it is as visual as it is aural. Dramatic spotlights flash on various members of the band with multiple drummer boys on snare, basses, tympani and, of course, a full kit.
It is truly an experience for the senses.
For King & Country’s highly stylized live version of “Little Drummer Boy” is available on their Christmas album, “Christmas: Live from Phoenix,” which just dropped in October.
