Go-to KGB accordion guy Alan Ingall of North Carolina approaches his instrument with a keen ear for anything that sounds like it would be fun to play, as evidenced by the wide-ranging material he brought to this project.

English banjo virtuoso Jon Mills plays styles from throughout the British Isles with his group The Old Lone Gin Band, but Jon is game to tackle anything including standards from the Great American Songbook!

Tim Olisker records as Pianissimo and has amazingly only been making music for about two years, starting on piano and then moving into the world of composition and performance using VSTs. His pan-ethnic classico-medieval sound, with its intriguing combination of Eastern sounds and Western traditions, makes a great counterpoint and companion to KGB's retrofuturistic global old-time.

Frequent KGB collaborator, the amazingly productive Loran Otzer is one of our favorite songwriters to work with. From his perch high in the Alps he writes and plays songs celebrating the myriad things he loves, all in a unique pop-friendly country-folk style.

Track Name: Breaking Up Christmas (Push it along mix featuring Couch King Presents and Chris Okunbor)
Hooray Jake and Hooray John
Breaking up Christmas all night long
Way back yonder, Long time ago
The old folks danced the do si do.

Way down yonder, along side the creek,
I saw santa Clause washing his feet.
Santa Clause come, Done, and gone.
Breaking up Christmas all night Long.

i dun gone said it
driving down that muddy road
this is the best you’ll ever get it
and the rain never slowed

if your boots dry wet it
we’re going all night long
stomping out time to forget it
till christmas is long gone

Hold up Jake
and Hold up john
the wagon sink we’ll never let
lets push it along

i dun gone said it
their gonna play our tune
and you bet they won’t regret it
come on y’all

let’s get there soon

push it along
push it along
push it along
yea, push it along

Wood on the fire
food on the grill
Mama lights the candles on the window sill

Uncle brought the steaks
He just bagged a deer
Poppa grabs a mug
Pours a pint of beer

Santa takes a break
Pulls up his black boot
gives a quick shake down the chimney chute

Pulls out his list
its 12 miles long
breaking up christmas all night long
