Livestream: A Christmas Celebration with The Steeles

MINNPOST PICK + STAR TRIBUNE PICK

The five siblings – Jearlyn, J.D., Fred, Jevetta and Billy – have sung together since childhood. They’ve been called the First Family of Twin Cities Music, but their careers are far from provincial. Together, separately and in combinations, they have sung on soundtracks, albums, and stages. Jevetta is an Oscar nominee; as a group, they’ve earned an Emmy nod. Last year’s Christmas Celebration was at the Fitzgerald. This year, they’ll livestream from the Dakota stage. -PAMELA ESPELAND

When you need someone to raise your spirits for Christmas or because of COVID, Minnesotans can always count on the Steeles. The sibling singers have the voices, the personalities and the songs to put you in the right mood. J.D., Fred, Jearlyn, Jevetta and Billy Steele have crafted several soul-lifting seasonal originals to go along with their inventive interpretations of yule chestnuts. For the past 36 years, the Steeles have staged their holiday show in venues all over the Twin Cities. This year’s stream will come from the intimacy of the Dakota in Minneapolis. -JON BREAM
