    The New Standards Holiday Show started in 2006 at the 1000 seat Fitzgerald Theater (home of “A Prairie Home Companion) in St. Paul, MN. Every year the New Standards Holiday Show sells out multiple nights, and in 2013 is moving to the larger State Theater in Minneapolis – AND bringing their show to St. Cloud! Their freewheeling, charming and always entertaining Holiday Show features a larger ensemble with percussion, horns, strings, and more wherein Chan, John and Steve act as ringleaders of a rotating cast of guest singers, storytellers, poets and dancers. Don’t miss this perennially popular evening of classic (and not so classic) Holiday songs, rock and pop gems, and wonderful moments filled with great musicianship, stories and laughter.

    The New Standards are a unique jazz trio making a splash around the world with their personality-laden brand of heartfelt engaging performance and extraordinary musicality. Each member, coming from a distinguished background in pop, rock and jazz, brings something fresh to the project. John Munson on stand-up bass, a founding member of legendary and chart-topping bands Trip Shakespeare and Semisonic, brings his mellifluous boy-choir vocals and melodious rock-steady chops, Chan Poling, the lead songwriter and vocalist of the seminal Twin Cities 80’s pop-punk band The Suburbs, is the crooner and rock-shouter, but surprises with his pianistic firepower, Steve Roehm, the band’s Secret Weapon reaching breathtaking jazzy and minimal-chiming colorful heights on his vibraphone, started in the punk-rock Billygoat and played in the avant-jazz Electropolis.

    With over half a dozen CDs to their name, the New Standards tour the world (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Shanghai) as well as their home state of Minnesota.
