This just in…a few days ago…slowly getting through my email…bear with me…
Email from Venice’s beloved singer/songwriter Kathy Leonardo:
“I have a zany Holiday group called The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers. We all live in Venice and sing every year at the Abbot Kinney Holiday Extravaganza….we will be singing at it again this year…this Saturday, Dec 13th…”

And their press release, which I have no time to paraphrase (thank god for copy&paste):
The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers are back again this year to spread good tidings and Christmas cheer here in LA. The Rockers, a local group of professional singers add a different slant to Christmas Caroling. Their offbeat harmonies and original arrangements bring a zany twist to the classic Christmas Carol. They are a different brand of Caroler.
The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers are not your typical holiday group. Yes they have been singing as a group for over 7 years and happen to be terrific singers, but they also dress incredibly flamboyant, and have an amazing amount of energy which makes for a truly fun and lively show. They even perform their own original songs. The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers include Catherine De La Casas, Rory Johnston, Marianne Lewis, Kathy Leonardo, Jon Preston, and Suzy Williams.
Don’t miss the Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers at The Abbot Kinney Holiday Extravaganza” Saturday December 13th between the hours of 6:30 pm and 9:30 pm at selected shops such as Abbot Kinney Real Estate (1422 Abbot Kinney), The Modern Dog (1611 Abbot Kinney) as well as Tumbleweed & Dandelion (1502 Abbot Kinney). Close to the Venice Blvd side of Abbot Kinney.
They will also be appearing at the Santa Monica Farmers Market on Sunday December 21st from 10:00 am till 1:00 pm. (Ocean Park & Main Street)
