The best way to spread Christmas cheer                                         

Is singing loud for all to hear!

-Buddy the Elf-

December is a wonderful month to experience live music in Nebraska.  I am sure that today I will miss mentioning many great local concerts.  I think to find them all would require much time and research.  So, I will at least mention some, and then I am hoping that if you know of others, you will post them on my Odyssey through Nebraska Facebook page.
