                                    "25th Anniversary AMO Christmas Show"

As it has in years past, the AMO show incorporates an American tradition originally

founded by Bob Hope’s USO Christmas tours overseas, honoring and entertaining

our troops. "We always include a special dedication to our troops and their families,

praying for a safe return home," says Stout, an Air Force "brat" whose

father served in Vietnam, "That's something we feel strongly about, especially

around Christmas time.”


The show will include stories of hope hosted by AMO's Chaplain

Stan Suderow, encouraging families about love, peace and the miracle of the

Christmas season, especially, enlight of these uncertain economic times.

The AMO Christmas show will celebrate two and half decades of Christmas and

will be dedicated to past and present AMO musicians, vocalist, actors, and

crews serving the community for the past twenty five years.


The Vaca Jazz Society thanks their dedicated sponsors, military and civilian

volunteers for making 2016 a successful year, helping to “Save Our Music”

Jazz Festival will continue on September 15th thru 17th and the Society thanks
