Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ronnie Spector will ring in the holiday season once again when her beloved multi-media show Ronnie Spector’s Best Christmas Party Ever! plays The Dakota. As The New York Times observed, “It’s hard to think of a more appealing angel to welcome the season than Ms. Spector.”
For three decades, Ronnie’s Christmas show has been a cherished holiday tradition, with a song list that includes her renditions of “Frosty the Snowman,” “Sleigh Ride,” “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Both “Frosty” and “Sleigh Ride” dominate the airwaves at Christmas time and are perennials on ASCAP’s list of the Top 20 Most–Played Holiday Songs for the past decade. Ronnie’s Christmas songs have been heard in hit movies such as Good Fellas, Joy, and Jingle All the Way.
2016 has been a busy year for Ronnie, who capped the most extensive UK/EU tour of her career with a Glastonbury Festival performance that garnered a five–star review in The Telegraph (UK). The tour was in support of English Heart, the British Invasion–themed collection that was Ronnie’s first new full–length album in a decade.
Ronnie Spector’s Best Christmas Party Ever! is a raucous, rocking, and intoxicating blend of Ronettes hits (“Be My Baby,” “Walking In The Rain,” “Baby I Love You”), cult gems from her back catalog, a splash of doo–wop, and plenty of Ronnie’s inimitable off–the–cuff commentary. “Go and experience the ultimate sonic stocking stuffer!” says The New York Daily News.
