Amero Little Christmas is a new take on a classic Christmas variety show. It falls somewhere between a Michael Bublé Christmas Special and Tom Jackson's Huron Carole, giving the audience a modern take on an annual Christmas show. Between the witty banter, lots of laughs, heartfelt music and inspiring stories, Amero Little Christmas is an experience for the whole family.

 

Don Amero is a three time Juno nominee who is making his mark on the Canadian Country music scene and he'll be touring this winter to bring his soulful country voice along with a few band mates to ring in the holiday season.

 

From humble beginnings in 2009, Don decided to plan a Christmas themed concert based purely on his love for holiday music and the community vibe that the season brings. “We all know there’s something magical about Christmas and my hope is to capture some of that and put it into a show”.

 

Don is known to throw in a few fun and festive videos that really put the icing on the cake and are always an audience favourite. The show sets a tone for people to refocus on what the season is really about, which to Amero means “to relax, look at the blessings in your life and show love to others.”

 

 

With the release of his 2018 album, EVOLUTION, Don Amero (MDM Recordings Inc./Universal Music Canada) stepped into the mainstream country music genre with brand new material that he considers his strongest yet.  An engaging storyteller, singer/songwriter and performer who has been touring, performing and speaking all across Canada for the last 10 years, the three-time JUNO nominee has earned the respect of the Canadian Music industry and has proven himself a much sought after performer who is able to genuinely connect with his audience with an easy and effortless charm.

 

Don’s seven previous albums have generated ten national and international awards, as well as one JUNO nomination in 2013 and two in 2016.  Now, with powerful vocals, a lovable stage presence, and a soulful sound that’s been likened to an Ed Sheeran/Keith Urban mix, Don brings his own brand of percussion-style guitar play and delightful approachability to every event.

 

A true musical talent without the rock-star attitude, Don is an artist first. His approach to his craft is rewarded every day, with accolades like “that voice is amazing,” “you’ve got a voice like silk,” and “I’m blown away by your ability.” Making beautiful music across seven albums, Don impresses wherever he goes with his messages of encouragement, positivity, and beauty.  His focus as an artist has been to create music that he hopes will be medicine for others and his “Music is Medicine” workshop has been presented across the country.

 

Raised in the notoriously tough north end of Winnipeg, Don faced his share of adversity growing up. Overcoming the poverty, gangs, drugs, and violence that surrounded him, Don’s life was tempered by love and support that held him up enabling him to thrive beyond those struggles and pursue his passion for music.

TESTIMONIALS

 

“Amero Little Christmas was a delightful addition to our theatre season. Don and his band-mates were personable and engaging with the audience, and used a healthy dose of humour to wind their way between upbeat and mellow Christmas tunes. The whole crew was great to work with and wonderful to listen to – highly recommended!”

Brandi Watson

Theatre Manager

Horizon Stage (Spruce Grove, AB)

 

“Don Amero was a revelation to the crowd at The Bow Valley Music Club. With a large number of season subscribers in attendance, many of the audience were not familiar with Don - when they arrived. By the end of his set however, with equal parts great personality and great performance, Don had won them over, and they certainly knew who he was then. We will definitely be bringing Don back.”

Larry Taylor

Artistic Director

Bow Valley Music Club (Calgary, AB)

 

“Don and his band were a pleasure to work with. Amero Little Christmas was perfect for our cabaret series at Christmas time. A concert to get you in the holiday spirit with some great original songs and old favourites.”
