Bud E Luv
This year marks the 28th Anniversary of The Bud E. Luv Christmas Spectacular. The Chapel is proud to bring to The Mission the hippest of hipsters, The Fabulous Bud E. Luv. A man Stephen Holden, famed critic of The New York Times calls Bud E. Luv "the ultimate lounge act” after catching his 11 week off-Broadway stint. The Boston Globe says "He’s bigger then Dianna Ross. His book "You Oughta Be Me , How To Be A Lounge Singer and Live Like One," St. Martins Press has changed the lives of millions worldwide. His CD “Diary of A Loungeman” a tribute to Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osborne’s greatest hits on Oglio Records so impressed Ozzy and Sharon that they flew him and the full band to Los Angeles for their MTV Re-Nuptial bash at The The Beverly Hills Hotel on New Year's Eve to perform the entire album “Bud E.” style.

The Christmas show had its humble beginnings at the famed Paradise Lounge at 11th and Folsom in 1990. Unexpectedly, the power went out in the club but they pulled power from the next door, lit candles and The Christmas Show tradition was started. When it moved to The Red Devil Lounge in 1998 they added the full 9 piece Big Band and continue with that extravagant sound to this day. From there it moved downtown to The Rrazz Room for three years to sold out crowds. Mayor Willie Brown has made this show part of his Christmas tradition for years. So put on your best cocktail dress and swinging dinner jacket and STAY in the Christmas spirit for one more day.

So lose your bah humbugs and quit whining about what you didn’t get for Christmas/Hanukah/Quanza, take a trip to Vegas without leaving town and swing with The Budster and his full 9 piece Big Band on December 23rd!
