VIKTOR GERNOT & his best friends
The Christmas Show 2021
“The Christmas Show” is a cult Austrian-American entertainer concert. An Advent mix of the most beautiful Christmas hits of the era of great entertainers and hand-picked stories and poems. “Every year again”, the exceptional entertainer celebrates a musical pre-Christmas evening with his best friends and his audience. Viktor Gernot brings all his skills and experience from over 30 years of music, cabaret, musical and TV to the stage.
Swinging original arrangements by the band are on offer, from exuberant and crazy to sensual and contemplative. Sometimes disrespectful and unholy, sometimes sentimental and romantic – a live experience of international format, based on the immortal legends of entertainment. There are outstanding musicians who take a lot of freedom for playful improvisation and Viktor Gernot as master of ceremonies, who knows how to inspire the audience with his incomparable voice. There are Austrian-German conferences, full of parodies, winking eyes and the finest humor – as one is used to from Viktor Gernot.
By the way, the repertoire of Christmas carols is made up of the Great American Songbook. Songs that became known through greats such as Bing Crosby, Michael Bublé, Mel Tormé, Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra, but also the much-sung Christmas tree finds space.
Viktor Gernot is on stage together with five excellent musicians – Aaron Wonesch (piano), Thomas Strobl (bass), Peter Haberfellner (guitar), Thomas Faulhammer (saxophone) and Wolfgang Fellinger (drums) – singing, playing and entertaining! The ideal musical-literary medicine to slow down the hectic pre-Christmas season for a few hours!
