premiere: Reggie and the full effect" "christmas in hollis"
It's hard to believe I've known James Dewees
AKA Reggie and the Full E[F]fect
for over 10 years. The daredevil-road dog-troubador has been singing with a cigarette dangling from his lip non-stop since the day I met him, and today is no exception. Especially because my inbox was blessed this morning with a new little holiday jam from my man.
While making the latest Reggie and the Full Effect
record No Country for Old Musicians
(which came out last month), Dewes recorded a couple of holiday ditties in preparation for the season. The holiday jams have been assembled and will be released as a mini-EP which has been dubbed the Reggie and the Full Effect : X-Mas Mini EP
and it's available for pre-order HERE
Today we bring you the Reggie version of "Christmas in Hollis," a classic that never gets old in any form. Enjoy this raucious rendition of the holiday jam, and just in case you feel a little nostalgic for the RUN DMC version, it's at the bottom of the post.

. And take it from me, if you haven't seen Dewees live yet, it's a MUST!
And just for kicks...a karaoke style lyric video...
