about

"Sticking to their infectious blend of the British Invasion, bubblegum, garage rock, and the Ramones, The Connection have made a Christmas album that's genuinely up to the standards of the rest of their recordings. One highlight has to be "I Feel Fine (It's Christmas Time)" - which the band co-wrote with the legendary Andy Shernoff. How often do you get the chance to collaborate with one of the greatest songwriters who's ever lived? And the result is no disappointment!" - Faster And Louder

"If you know The Connection, you’ll love this. If you don’t, but like punky power pop that sounds like Cheap Trick jamming on Ramones songs (the latter is more true than normal here) with Redd Kross, then, you’ll love it too. So, eight original Christmas songs, written by one of the finest bands of their type there is. What’s not to like? Well, nothing actually. I still hate Christmas, though and not even Geoff Palmer can change my mind on that." - Maximum Volume Music

“THE CONNECTION GETS IT!”
- Steven Van Zandt, The Underground Garage

Heralded by rock pioneer, visionary, and Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, Championed by Little Steven Van Zandt, consistent airplay every day on Sirius XM’s The Underground Garage with 7 singles including 5 former Coolest Songs In The World, one would suggest that New England’s newest hit-makers The Connection are on a roll...

Channeling equal parts early Beatles, The Kinks, Paul Collins Beat, and down and dirty 60’s garage rock meeting the swagger of The Rolling Stones, The Connection grabs hold of the listener at first
hook and either throttles you or sends you to the dance floor begging for more.

Spending several weeks writing and recording, including a song writing session with punk rock pioneer and founder of NYC legends The Dictators Andy Shernoff. New England’s newest hit-makers are at it once again, churning out pure and honest, true to form rock n’ roll including; their jangly tongue-in-cheek holiday anthems from “Money, Honey, Baby” to the bubble gum sing-a-long “West Coast” and bringing it all back home with the spirit of holiday “I Feel Fine (It’s Christmas Time)” co-written with Andy Shernoff.

The Connection’s hit song catalog including Christmas Collection bridges the gap between Brit Pop, Bubble Gum, Garage Rock, and raw energy punk with Ramones like hooks and Real Kids raw energy. I am sure every good little rock n roller will be wanting Christmas Collection crossed off Santa’s list when he comes rolling through town this Holiday Season, Cheers!!
