Patrick Lamb's "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

Live At The Tower! Reserved seating, doors open at 6:30 pm.

The safety of Tower patrons, staff, volunteers and performers is of paramount importance. With continuing COVID-19 cases and illness, plus evolving industry norms and best practices, the Tower Theatre now requires proof of full vaccination for entry to all performances. Those not fully vaccinated, ages 12 and up, must show proof of a negative result from an approved COVID test taken within 72 hours of the performance. “Fully vaccinated” means receiving the final vaccination dose of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson at least 14 days before the performance date. All patrons need to provide this information as a condition of entry. Based on Oregon mandates, mask wearing is also required inside the venue by everyone 5 and up, regardless of vaccination status.

These protocols are subject to review and change according to federal, state and county recommendations and guidelines.

​Saxophonist and producer Patrick Lamb brings Christmas to life through the legendary music of “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” the best-selling 1965 holiday album by American jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi and soundtrack to the animated television special of the same name. Allmusic called it a "joyous and festive meditation for the holiday season.” Pitchfork described the songs as "small, observant miracles...If there's a muted quality to a lot of this music, it's smiling nonetheless."

An influential veteran of the Portland pop and jazz scene, Lamb’s first three singles hit the top five on the national Billboard charts. He was one of the youngest members ever inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, awarded three Muddy Awards by the Cascade Blues Association, given the Hero Award by Children’s Cancer Association, and the Independent Spirit Award by the city of Portland. He has circled the world many times over performing on tours with Smokey Robinson, Esperanza Spalding, Gino Vannelli, Bobby Caldwell, Jeff Lorber Fusion, Tower of Power, and rock ‘n’ rollers Tommy Thayer (lead guitarist of KISS), Alice Cooper, Robby Krieger Orianthi, and Richie Sambora. Patrick is the producer and promoter of the long-standing and highly regarded “Jazz at the Oxford” concert series in Bend. When he’s not touring or producing music, his party band “Hit Factory” entertains top businesses and appreciative audiences at Herbalife, Nike North America, BMW China, Providence Health, Governor’s Ball, and the Portland Trailblazers.

Joining Patrick for this exclusive Central Oregon performance are Steve Christofferson, Dan Balmer, Adam Carlson, and a children’s choir from the Bend area.
