Best selling Christmas artist, Mannheim Steamroller, is coming back to CFCC’s Wilson Center.

The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is looking forward to the best selling Christmas artist in history, Mannheim Steamroller, returning to the Center on November 29th, 2023, for two shows. Mannheim Steamroller is an experience not to be missed, and is sure to brighten the holidays!

Chip Davis, founder and creator of Mannheim Steamroller, will celebrate over 35 Years of his annual Christmas concert tour, making it the longest running concert tour in the entertainment industry! 

“I remember when I came out with my first Christmas album in 1984 followed by our first tour.  Back then, many in the music industry said focusing on Christmas just wouldn’t work,” said Davis.   

“Now, over 35 years later, we are still going strong. I want to thank our fans for making us part of their holiday tradition, especially after the hardships of the last few years. Today we often see multi-generational families join us during the holidays each year.”

Davis founded his own record label, American Gramaphone, which went on to become one of the industry’s largest independent record labels. A Grammy Award winner, Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 41 million albums, with over 31.5 million sales in the Christmas genre. Their holiday CD’s have become synonymous with Christmas, and occupy top positions on Billboard’s Seasonal Chart every year.  

This year’s show will feature classic Christmas hits from the Mannheim Steamroller holiday albums along with multimedia effects in an intimate setting. Davis will direct and co-produce the tour performances with MagicSpace Entertainment.
