Deck the halls with Sons of Maxwell!

by on November 16, 2012

Sons of Maxwell (SOM) will be welcoming in the Christmas season at The Fredericton Playhouse on December 15 with a collection of songs from their Instant Christmas CD, a few SOM favourites, and their new Christmas CD due out this December. SOM’s energetic performances are highlighted by a great sense of humour, their signature harmonies and original pop-folk songs. The strength of the duo is built upon its diversity. The fact is, what sets them apart has also made them so popular with such a broad spectrum of people.

Don and Dave Carroll began their music career in university when they started a singing duo and they have not slowed down since. With much dedication and spirit, the “Don and Dave Show” evolved into the ECMA award-winning band Sons of Maxwell. The band’s namesake comes from their father Max. Sons of Maxwell have toured North America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.

Sons of Maxwell have been nominated for 5 East Coast Music Awards and have won 2 ECMA’s (one in 2006 with Sunday Morning for Country Album of the year and in 2002 with Among the Living for Roots Traditional Group of the year).  Along with their long and successful joint career in SOM both the Carroll brothers have individual musical interests. Dave has released his debut solo album Perfect Blue in 2008 and a follow-up solo record in 2012 called Raincoat in Vegas. Don has followed his love of jazz standards, putting together a swing band and also released an album of his own, Valentine Delivered. In December of 2012 Sons of Maxwell will be releasing Sons of Maxwell Christmas Super Deluxe.

The band’s music was introduced to millions when Dave’s 2009 YouTube music video United Breaks Guitars became a worldwide sensation. The song chronicled his experience in the customer service process with United Airlines. His creative use of social media to share that message has reached over 150 million people. United Breaks Guitars was named one of the five most important videos in Google’s history. The United Breaks Guitars trilogy has awakened companies everywhere to the importance of focusing on the customer and on delivering exceptional customer experience.

Often called “the nicest guys in the business”, Don and Dave continue to deliver high energy quality entertainment that is both relevant and accessible to live music fans of all ages. With a large and loyal fan base and several industry awards behind them, they continue to record and tour music halls, theatres and festivals.

So come on in from the cold, get into the spirit of season with Sons of Maxwell and share the holiday cheer!
