   so, here we are November, and times flying towardsCOTB 14 the holidays again, uh oh, where & when am I performing Christmas On The Block this year? Of course it’s Alan Mann’s song, a favorite Philly songwriter from the ’80s, I’s piano & keys in the original band.

   “Larry Saklad is a talented, veteran Philadelphia musician who has some new projects he is working on. He sat down with us to talk about his career & his music, from the time he performed as a child at Carnegie Hall to where he is now with his songwriting, music & performing. It is obvious; Larry is having a lot of fun making music…”  KYW’s RJ Mckay, YLN Vidcast

   “Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Alan Mann’s “Christmas On The Block” at The Legendary Dobbs on 12/22/13 Nothing depicts a community’s holiday spirit like a massive sing-along to a local favorite. In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Philadelphians from all over town will gather to sing along to Alan Mann’s 1983 holiday song “Christmas On The Block” which was the first independent music video to air on MTV. Organized by longtime local rocker Kenn Kweder, as well as George Manney, and Mann’s former pianist Larry Saklad, the event will take place at The Legendary Dobbs on South Street. In addition, a camera crew from Attention Films will be at the show to film the performance and interviews for a documentary, and the band will performed backed by projections of archival Alan Mann footage. Get more details here, and look for a download of the song next week when Helen Leicht’s 12 Days of Philly Local Christmas begins.”  Katrina Murray, The Key wxpn
