Last December, more than 1,400 patrons packed into venues in Walnut Hills and Montgomery to enjoy the debut holiday performance of the NO PROMISES Vocal Band. The ensemble reprises its 2015 holiday hit with a five-city tour and a new record.
NO PROMISES returns to Cincinnati with “Christmas With No Promises” at New Thought Unity Center (1401 E. McMillan Street, Walnut Hills) on Friday, December 9 at 7:30pm, and Community of the Good Shepherd (8815 E. Kemper Road, Montgomery) on Sunday, December 11 at 6:00pm. Admission to the one-hour concerts is free; a freewill offering will be accepted. Reservations are not required, but it is recommended that audiences arrive early. Concerts in Dayton and Cincinnati have been filled to capacity.
The “Christmas With No Promises” tour will include six Ohio concerts in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Findlay and Toledo. The ensemble will perform selections from both Christmas and everyday repertoire, coinciding with release of their new record, “A No Promises Christmas.” Audiences can expect spiritual and secular holiday favorites, along with jazz and pop tunes from Manhattan Transfer, Andy Williams and Taylor Swift.
The album will be available for $15 as a CD and as a digital download at each concert venue
