Yoshis proudly welcomes the return of Alvon Johnson and his Third Annual Holiday Celebration. Christmas eve will be a very special night at Yoshis with a party like no other party. Years ago, Alvon Johnson held Holiday parties at his home where he would invite friends, family and neighbors to come together and share the love of music and the spirit of the season. Jazz, Blues, and Rock and Roll musicians and singers from all over the world would drop by and sing and play all night long. The parties became so popular that it was necessary to find a new venue large enough to hold the event. Alvon Johnsons third annual Holiday Celebration will follow that tradition of sharing and caring the love of music on Christmas eve and you will see and hear some of the finest talent in the business. Special guest for this evenings show includes the incredible vocalist Niecy Robinson, and the amazing Saxaphone sensation Stabe Wilson.
