When he’s not pounding the skins in the soulful electro-pop band Madaila, Dan Ryan keeps things jazzy with his quintet, the Dan Ryan Express. This yuletide season, he unveils the Dan Ryan Holiday Express for a night of hot jazz and special wintry tunes. Midway through the performance, the DRHE will become Bryan McNamara’s Downtown Bubba Brown Happy Holidaze Tentet, performing holiday favorites arranged by McNamara. Musicians include Jeremy Sinclair, Kevin Avery, Jake Whitesell, Ted Crosby, James Harvey, Joe Davidian, Robinson Morse and special guest vocalists Brittany Mae and Matt Wright. Get cozy with the Dan Ryan Holiday Express on Thursday, December 22, at Radio Bean in Burlington.
