Prior to the pandemic Carol Manson and the Blue Skies Band played at the Brickhouse to "open" the Winter holiday season...it's been a tradition now and we are hoping, as we get a good handle on the pandemic, we'll be able to do it again in 2021. The show will feature Carol Manson and the Blue Skies Band with Chet Chwalik as music director and songbird Ifamodupe will be joining us. (Masks required)
