A band that you either love or hate. I personally am a hater. The group started earlier than 1975, when the leader of the band invented a mixture of rock, pop, and classical, called "new age music" (oh joy). They have put out 8 albums of a series of music called "Fresh Aire" as well as their Christmas time favorite "Mannheim Steamroller Christmas," which has sold more than 5 million albums since its 1984 release. Mannheim Steamroller's brand of music is a little odd. They play a sort of adult contemporary techno, using synthesizers, but also drums, bassoons and flutes.
But wait! That's not all!
"A feature film based on a story he has written is also being developed. The film, featuring Davis' (the leader of the group) music is about Christmas 100 years in the future when everyone has moved into shopping malls and forgotten about the giving of oneself that is the heart of the holiday."
Sounds like another action packed Hollywood blockbuster to me.
