“College students returning home for the holidays blew the roof off Damascus United Methodist Church on Sunday night with their second annual big-band Welcome Home for Christmas Concert...... On Sunday night, the band performed more than 20 songs, a mix of Christmas music, rock classics and original songs by Constantinides. The band’s set list was diverse, with songs like “Blue Christmas,” featuring bluesy-sounding horns, and a Latin-sounding “Noel,” written by Constantinides, with Ryan on tenor sax. Their big-and brassy sound came to the fore with Chicago’s classic, “Make Me Smile,” and they also played Stevie Wonder’s hit “Superstition” and the Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody.””
