Get Ready for AN EVENING of HO. HO. HOLY CRAP… The DEAN Blundell Show are Pleased to play host to an awesome array of talent for the Inaugural Dean Blundell ChristmasFEST.
Headlining Christmasfest will be the Southern Californian Rock/reggae/hip-hop act THE DIRTY HEADS. After Tearing up the stage at Edgefest 2012and tearing up the Charts with the Hit Song Lay Me Down, Dirty Heads are the perfect fit for the event. After all what’s a better fit for a variety show then a band that can seamlessly blend hip hop, Ska, Reggae, and rock. If you haven’t seen this band live, your are quite simply missing out on a great time. Canadian Rockers and Friends of the show Jag Tanna and Brian Byrne of I Mother Earth will also be dropping by to do an acoustic set for the show.
In addition to The DIRTY HEADS and the Mothers , Actor / Director and friend of the show KEVIN SMITH (Clerks, RED STATE) will join the Dean Blundell show for some on stage funny. Kevin will bring his own fowl mouthed brand of storytelling and commentary to some Dean Blundell show favorites like “Edgefiles” Wha Happened, and Year in Review LIVE. Comedian Craig Gass will also make the trek up to the Great White North to add more live comedy and Celebrity Impressions to the MIX. And the Dean Blundell House Band, The Salads will tie it all together (Please notice there was no lame “tie it in a bow” or “wrap it up “ or nice package pun inserted here.)
