“ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE” ARTIST, BRENDA LEE, TO PERFORM AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO SIOUX CITY
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (October 27, 2015) – Perhaps best known for her 1958 hit “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” Brenda Lee is schedule to perform in Anthem at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City on December 18, 2015 at 7pm and 9pm.
Known as “Little Miss Dynamite,” Brenda Lee – who stands all of four feet, nine inches tall – was blessed with a powerful voice that belies her size. She can sing rockabilly, country and pop standards with equal conviction, and her versatility as an interpreter has allowed her a career of extraordinary longevity. She is the kicking, countrified upstart of “Jambalaya” and “That’s All You Gotta Do,” the pert, jaunty rocker of “Sweet Nothin’s” and “Let’s Jump the Broomstick,” the heartbroken balladeer of “I’m Sorry” and “Break It to Me Gently,” the sophisticated songstress of “I Just Want to Be Wanted” and “You Can Depend on Me,” and the country storyteller of “Big Four Poster Bed” and “Nobody Wins.” She is also indelibly associated with the holiday season, as her 1958 recording of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” has become a standard that’s heard every year and is ensconced at #4 on the all-time list of popular seasonal records.
The list of achievements for Brenda are hard to surpass. She is the only female performer to be inducted into both the Rock & Roll and Country Music Halls of Fame. She is also a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and has record sales in excess of 100 million worldwide. She had 47 US chart hits during the 1960s alone and charted in more categories – pop, rhythm & blues, rock, easy listening and country – than any other woman in the history of recorded music.
Tickets go on sale Saturday, October 30 at 10am online or at the Rock Shop.
