Holiday Decembersongs Concert to Benefit Community

On Sunday, December 7 at 7:30pm, four acclaimed singer-songwriters from Nashville—who collectively perform as “Decembersongs”—will perform a holiday benefit concert at Seven Steps Up, 116 S. Jackson in Spring Lake.

The concert, presented by title sponsors Seven Steps Up and Varnum Law, will be a unique performance of original holiday music with a philanthropic twist. Thanks to generous support by sponsors, 100 percent of the ticket revenue will be donated to Greater Ottawa County United Way. Other sponsors include AireServ Heating and Air Conditioning, Alles Tire Auto Service, Anything Goes Catering, Courtyard Concerts, Holiday Inn, Orchard Market, Sweet Temptations, Wasserman's Flower Shop, and Williams Hughes Attorneys PLLC.

Seven Steps Up is known for its unique acoustic “listening room,” and its intimate, 122-seat ambience.  The original acoustic Christmas music written and performed by Decembersongs will be sure to set the tone for a special holiday season. The four artists—Amy Speace, Rod Picott, Doug & Telisha Williams (of Wild Ponies)  -  write and perform separately and with other artists for most of the year. In late fall and early winter they come together to tour the country performing their original Christmas music.

Tickets are $30-$50 and can be purchased at or by calling (231) 557-7687. A limited number of table seats near the stage are also available. The evening begins with a social hour at 6:30pm with sweet and savory treats prepared and served by Anything Goes Catering. At 7:30pm, Decembersongs will take the stage. A complete cash bar will be available all evening.

“What a wonderful Christmas gift our title sponsors Seven Steps Up and Varnum Law, along with Courtyard Concerts and all the other sponsoring companies, are giving to the community,” said United Way President Patrick Moran.  “And what a boost this can be to our efforts to raise the dollars we need to invest in the building blocks of a better life for all.”
