Here is our gift to you: a goofy Christmas album.
released December 13, 2013
All songs performed by Gamenight and friends. This album was recorded and mixed at The Lark Lane House by Gamenight in Knoxville, TN, in December 2013. Additional recording on “Run, Rudolph, Run” took place in Milo’s Room in Maryville, TN. Acoustic guitar and pedal steel on “Mele Kalikimaka” performed by Jonathan Keeney. Group vocals on “Christmas Time is Here” and “Winter Wonderland” were performed by the Gamenight All Boys All The Time Choir, featuring Zach Gilleran. “Whooos” on “Run, Rudolph, Run” performed by Lee Darden.
