The annual South Sound Blues Association Holiday Party is returning to the Spanish Ballroom on Sunday, December 10, from 5:00 to 9:00pm. The evening will feature musical performances by the Chris Eger Band and RT Collective.

Guitarist and vocalist Chris Eger has been fronting his own band for over a decade, impressing a growing audience both in person and online. Chris has won the Washington Blues Society “BB Award” as Best Male Vocalist for the past four years in a row, and the band’s exciting live performances have made them one of the most in-demand acts in the Pacific Northwest. Chris’ video series,
One Take Weekly @ Plum Tree Recording Studio, is into its fourth season and has garnered over 180k views on YouTube alone!
The band’s latest release, “Show Me Where to Sign,” was recorded in Nashville and co-produced by Chris and his guitar hero Eric Heatherly. This high energy record, which includes several of Chris’s original songs, blends straight electric blues with blue-eyed soul, Hendrix inspired rock, and horn infused funk.
For this SSBA Holiday Party show the Chris Eger Band will consists of Chris on guitar and vocals, his father Randall, a 35-year music veteran, on bass, Matt Clark on drums, and Rick Jiles on keys. The band’s sound is tight and soulful, and this performance, their first at The Spanish Ballroom, is sure to please their many devoted fans and win new ones.
RT Collective came about as the result of two extraordinary musicians having a desire to get back to their roots. Guitarist Rafael Tranquilino, (this year’s Washington Blues Society “BB Award) and bass player Patrick McDanel are both widely known as electric instrument players. But when they got together to jam in 2021, they decided to go acoustic. The music felt fresh and creative, and they enjoyed this new collaboration so much that they began bringing this “old school” approach to live audiences. In these duo shows they perform an eclectic mix of songs with a fun, improvisational approach that engages listeners and provides a unique musical experience.
