A few years ago, I attended the McGarrigle Christmas Show at Carnegie Hall and had my mind blown for the very first time by Mr. Justin Bond. A former member of legendary lounge act Kiki and Herb, Bond is a passionate performer and songwriter. Ignore him at your own peril. I’ve now seen him do an epic cover of “Rhiannon,” an entire show of Carpenters covers, and his own amazing songs, but my most memorable Justin Bond moment remains the first time I saw him and he performed this song, “Christmas Spells,” definitely the most intense holiday song I’ve ever heard.
You can buy Justin Bond’s latest EP Pink Slip at CDBaby. And, if you loved the performance in the video above, you can buy the Not So Silent Night DVD, a recording of the McGarrigle Family Christmas show at Insound.
