The tour, now in its 27th year, is still met by sold-out audiences and was one of the top 20 concert tours in the nation last year. This year Mannheim Steamroller’s two touring ensembles will hold over 90 performances throughout the United States.
Grammy Award® winner Davis will direct and co-produce the performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The shows will feature the favorite Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with state-of-the-art multimedia effects in an intimate setting.
In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that changed the sounds of Christmas. Already a multi-platinum recording artist through its Fresh Aire series, Davis decided to record an album of Christmas music combining the group’s signature mix of Renaissance instruments with rock & roll beats.
The resulting album was a runaway hit and Mannheim Steamroller went on to become the biggest selling Christmas music artist in history. The group’s Christmas tour has become an annual holiday tradition right along with decorating the tree, exchanging presents and creating unforgettable moments with friends and family.
Composer and creator Chip Davis started Mannheim Steamroller more than 30 years ago with his Grammy Award-winning Fresh Aire series. Today, with 19 gold, 8 multi-platinum and 4 platinum certified records, Davis is among an elite group of artists — including U2, Jay-Z, The Beach Boys and Michael Jackson – holding the most certifications of such albums.
Mannheim Steamroller is the #1-selling Christmas artist of all time. With over 40 million total records sold, 28 million have been Mannheim Steamroller Christmas albums. The group’s annual Christmas tour has consistently ranked among top national tours.
From founding his own record label American Gramaphone, which has been ranked by Billboard as the #1 independent label, to creating the Mannheim Steamroller “lifestyle” of food, apparel and other products, Davis is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the music industry.
His latest achievement is creating a cutting edge psychoacoustic technology that is being used in major medical institutions such as Mayo Clinic and is also being studied by NASA for potential use in space.
