“This is a first for us, and it’ll be a real treat for our fans. We always wanted to bring them into our home and witness some of the magic that can happen when we play with icons like Steve Cropper and newcomers who are as talented as Sarah Darling. And we found “Songs from the Cellar” was the perfect opportunity to sip some vino, sing our hearts out and share some laughs,” Vassar said.

Vassar continues his #noPHILter tour including a sold-out show at Franklin Theatre Dec. 18 in Franklin, Tenn., which will also be LIVE streamed through Digital Rodeo TV’s free app, available here.
Utilizing his strong social following that spans 45 countries and across 6 continents, Vassar’s energetic show is fan driven by social media requests and includes personal interactions with the crowd. Vassar’s most recent live streaming broadcast garnered 309,000 viewers with less than 24 hours notice.
“This is all about transcending the venue and bringing our show straight to fans. Although we play more than 135 shows a year, we aren’t able to reach all our fans, and many aren’t able to experience our Christmas shows. Live streaming allows us reach them wherever they are - as well as experience our favorite holiday songs,” Vassar said.
Fans can expect to hear original and Christmas classics, new material from his forthcoming album as well as well as his reign of hits, including "Carlene," "Just Another Day in Paradise," "Six-Pack Summer," "That's When I Love You" and many more.
Vassar will also be joined by rising singer/songwriter Sarah Darling during the Dec. 18 show.
As with all #noPHILter concerts, Vassar will tap into the crowd for social media requests during the show.
“During our last live streamed concert, we were getting requests from Sweden, Canada, Brazil, and all over the world. We can’t wait to see where the tweets come from this Friday, said Vassar.”
