My KUTX: The Grapes & Friends Xmas Extravaganza 2018

There are Christmas parties…and then there’s the Grapes & Friends Xmas Extravaganza. Austin’s (self-appointed) best Christmas band puts on a multi-media yuletide explosion at the Hole In The Wall, and on December 15, the Extravaganza returns for its tenth year. Come for the Christmas covers and originals, stay for the Santa appearances, photo booth, comedy sketches, and Jose Feliciano appearances (actually happened in year two). And this week on My KUTX, the Grapes’ Chris, Rusty, and Barry play an hour of their favorite Christmas songs and take a call from Boy Christmas, their kinda creepy biggest fan. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, December 1 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
