“Create a resounding holiday rock orchestra,” that was the 2002 vision of Twelve Twenty-Four co-founders George Houseknecht, Richie Kossuth, Lenny Kucinski, and Jason Santos.  A vision that was not only fulfilled, but one that energetically continues to this day. 

Since its inception, the band has evolved from a five-piece rock band to a complete rock orchestra.  Over the years, Twelve Twenty-Four built upon the core rock band by adding a multi-member string section, several featured vocalists, and a dedicated road crew.  Although they only perform during the holiday season, Twelve Twenty-Four is a year-round project.  Behind-the-scenes production occurs throughout the year and rehearsals begin during the summer.  Their tour season begins in mid-November and continues through the end of the holiday season. 

Inspired by the music and stage presentation of some of music’s greatest rock orchestras, Twelve Twenty-Four presents a show that involves high-energy rock music combined with professional stage effects including theatrical lighting, smoke, and even snow.  If it appears to be a considerable effort for a month and a half of shows, Music Director Jason Santos said there are good reasons the group tours each year. “The way people come back every year … it’s emotionally charging.  It’s uplifting when people are talking and they say it starts their Christmas off or they’re having a bad day and needed some spiritual uplifting,” Santos said. 


As a special bonus for this year's performance, The Newton Theatre is offering discounts on group tickets for families and organizations; every order of $150 or more receives $10 off, automatically applied at checkout.  


Twelve Twenty-Four

Established in 2002, Twelve Twenty-Four presents a high energy, full-scale, holiday rock orchestra concert featuring everyone’s favorite rock-edge holiday music as well as their own holiday creations.

Twelve Twenty-Four includes a six-piece rock band, multi-piece string section, and a variety of vocalists. This dedicated group of performers work year-round to deliver a theatrical and memorable Christmas concert experience suitable for fans of all ages.

Steel Notes Magazine describes Twelve Twenty-Four as, “…it has the hardness and creativity of Rush combined with the finesse and perfection of Pink Floyd!”

Inspired by the music and stage presentation of some of music’s greatest rock orchestras, their shows feature songs from their 2012 release, Light in the Dark and their 2010 debut CD, Miracle on Rock Street.

Gracing their concert stage is an amazing group of professional and talented performers. Twelve Twenty-Four includes a six-piece rock band, multi-piece string section, and a variety of vocalists.
