Tom Wopat & John Schneider: RETURN OF THE DUKES Christmas

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with the Duke boys in Tom Wopat & John Schneider: RETURN OF THE DUKES Christmas. Best known for their roles as Luke and Bo Duke on the wildly successful television show The Dukes of Hazzard, Tom Wopat and John Schneider have also forged careers as highly accomplished musicians. Now they’ve come together again to perform some of your favorite Christmas classics, including “Silver Bells,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” all with a country twist.

The boys have been busy since The Dukes of Hazzard went off the air. First achieving fame as Luke Duke, Tom Wopat began his career as a musician in the late 1980s. Since he began performing, Wopat has recorded eight albums that experiment with a combination of country music and rock and roll styles. The promising musician quickly moved to the stage, appearing in a number of successful Broadway productions, including Chicago and 42nd Street. Wopat thrived on the stage, earning Tony Award nominations for his roles in A Catered Affair and Annie Get Your Gun. When he’s not performing on stage and in film, Wopat continues to write and produce music.

Known as Bo Duke by many fans, John Schneider began singing professionally in the early 1980s. Over his career, he has released ten studio albums and eighteen singles, including “Country Girls,” “What’s a Memory Like You,” and “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know,” which all enjoyed success on the top of the Billboard country singles charts. Schneider also continued his acting career, notably appearing as Clark Kent’s father in the recent TV series Smallville.

Now, after over twenty years of successful solo careers, Tom Wopat and John Schneider are reuniting just in time for Christmas. Tom Wopat & John Schneider: RETURN OF THE DUKES Christmas follows the late 2014 release of the duo’s Christmas album entitled Home for Christmas. The dream of completing a holiday country music album became a reality after the musicians raised an astonishing $72,000 through a grassroots Kickstarter campaign. As HazzardNet describes, Wopat and Schneider “display an obvious ease around each other, clearly enjoying themselves and the music that unites them.” So, enjoy yourself this Christmas with the Duke brothers as they perform all of the holiday classics.
