War on Xmas

War on Xmas (2020-) — Ken DeRoche (conceiver, producer, engineer, scorer, GarageBand guru, tireless cat-herder, and multi-instrumentalist), Neil Granger (bass guitar), and myself (guitar, ukulele, and any other instruments I might have lying around that could be useful) — is a long-distance collaboration up and down the West Coast (Seattle, Oakland, and Los Angeles) empowered by GarageBand dedicated to taking obscene liberties with the Christmas tune catalog and rendering them in a Ventures-style (i.e. largely vocal-less for reasons that might not be hard to guess!) mix of MIDI-fied and live instrumentation.

These tracks are included on Ken's albums, "Christmas Cheer 2021" and "Christmas Cheer 2022" (released on OK, Boomer Music) along with many more tunes from other collaborations.
