United Rocks! A classic Rock Christmas was Nov. 22 at the Topeka Performing Arts Center. It featured December People, a band
of musicians whose music fused classic hits with classic Christmas carols.
The concert featured December People, a band of musicians whose
music fuses classic hits with classic Christmas carols. The bands
members played with such well-known acts as Boston, Sammy
Hagar, the Greg Kihn Band, the Tubes, Ambrosia, ELP and Y&T. The
concert was staged to generate hunger awareness, collect food for
Project Topeka and support United Way of Greater Topeka.
The concert came about after Dan Woodard, president of Project
Topeka, shared with Al Hammons, United Way information
technology director, that donations to Project Topeka were down last
year, at times approaching 50 percent lower. Project Topeka serves a
number of local food banks and pantries.
