Alt Rock Supergroup Brings Holiday Cheer in ‘Must Be Christmas’ Video

By Philip Cosores

Band of Merrymakers is a rotating band of holiday songsters, appearing annually to bring tidings of joy and frankincense and music. Okay, maybe not the frankincense, but definitely the joy and music.

This year, the group includes Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees, Fitz of Fitz & the Tantrums, Nick Hexum of 311, Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra, Smallpools, the Mowgli’s, 3OH!3, Sinclair and the Honeymoons and Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum (via Billboard).

The group has recorded a single and filmed a video for “Must Be Christmas,” which sees the band dress up like a mob of Santas and take to the streets to spread holiday cheer, including iconic spots on the streets of Nashville and in Los Angeles, both on Hollywood Boulevard and under the Hollywood sign. They also hit up a bar. Because, at the core, Band of Merrymakers are just like us, and know a little inner warmth makes the holidays all the more festive.

Watch the clip and purchase “Must Be Christmas,” with proceeds going to the MusiCares Foundation, on iTunes.
