Fans of blues, jazz and roots music have come to look forward to the annual Noelathon
, the extended-length holiday concert organized by singer and flute player Margaret Bianchetta each December. Bianchetta always recruits a bountiful and diverse roster of talent for the event, and the lineup for the fourteenth-annual edition includes the Soulard Blues Band, Alvin Jett and the Phat noiZ Blues band, the Mighty Big Band, Hard Bop Heritage, Swing Set, The Orbits, Jobim Dreams, Dizzy Atmosphere, Eric McSpadden, Celia and many others. Proceeds will benefit music programs at St. Frances Cabrini Academy, as will the profits from If I Were a Bell
, a limited-edition, holiday-themed CD that features a number of the Noelathon performers and will be on sale the night of the show.
