About

Lakeland is getting its own Christmas album!

Christmas in Lakeland is an amazing thing.  When the bells and wreaths go up around Lake Mirror, and the lights are up in Munn Park, you know the holiday season is in full effect. This year, Lakeland is getting it's own soundtrack to go along with it.

A Lakeland Christmas, Vol. 1 is Lakeland's first Christmas album, recorded and produced here in town by The Vanguard Room. The album has brand new arrangements of 10 Christmas songs - a couple favorite classics and standards, some of the biggest Christmas pop hits of all time, and even a song or two you may not know yet. But what makes this a Lakeland Christmas album is that each track features one of our brightest local musical talents:

To make this Lakeland music milestone even more special, we're doing a limited pressing of the album on a gorgeous 12" white vinyl record. Whether it's for your record collection, or just to display on your wall, this is a great opportunity to support local music and be a part of Lakeland music history.

A Lakeland Christmas, Vol. 1 - 12" White Vinyl Record

The more the merrier!

The Lakeland music scene wouldn't be where it is today without support from local music lovers.  If you want to support this project and future Lakeland-focused music projects even more, there are a few extra rewards you can get:

Album Art T-Shirt

We've got a limited amount of t-shirts featuring the album art for our Kickstarter supporters. Printed on 100% Cotton Bella Canvas shirts in dark red or green.  A great way to spot fellow supporters around town.

 A Lakeland Christmas, Vol. 1 - Live at Union Hall

We'll be performing the entire album live for two concerts at Union Hall here in Lakeland, FL on December 13 & 14. We'll be joined by the amazing roster of local artists featured on the album, who will each be performing some of their original music as well.  You can get tickets for the concert along with your vinyl record and t-shirt right here.

 Become a Lakeland Music Benefactor

A local music scene is only as strong as it's community of supporters, and Lakeland has seen an unprecedented groundswell of excitement for local arts, eateries, and small businesses over the past few years.  We'd love to see that excitement create a sustainable support system for Lakeland-based artists and musicians.  Any money given beyond the record, t-shirt, and concert tickets will be exclusively used to fund future Lakeland-based music projects.  As a thank you, we'll also be inviting any "Benefactors" to The Vanguard Room in December for a private Christmas party with the featured artists from the record.  This will be a great chance to celebrate this album, and meet the artists and producers who brought these new recordings to life.
