For a landmark 10th successive year, Jim Hudak will perform at Vic Stewart’s Restaurant in Walnut Creek, CA throughout December. The legendary steakhouse, located in what was a train depot building in the early 1900’s, welcomes back the versatile musician for its “Christmas Luncheon” schedule from December 5th until Christmas. “I always look forward to playing at Vic’s,” Hudak said upon securing this year’s engagement. “The atmosphere, uniqueness of the building and its history, and the large and devoted clientele make it a special place to play piano.” While performing “a fair number of holiday songs,” Hudak is known for his inimitable mix of music and genres, from pop music to jazz, classical, country, and more than a few of his own compositions. “I try to make it pretty seamless as I go from song to song,” he says. It’s not unusual for me to go from Duke Ellington to The Kinks to The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, while sandwiching my own songs in there, too. People seem to enjoy the presentation.” Vic Stewart’s normally is a dinner house only. December marks an exception to their schedule. They open for lunch from 11:30 AM till 2 PM Monday through Friday, particularly catering to the businesses who take their employees out for a “Christmas lunch.” Many businesses large and small return to Vic’s year after year for the special occasion. The restaurant is ideally suited for businesses of all sizes, offering several compartmentalized rooms with various seating capacities. Groups from eight to eighty are easily accommodated. While he didn’t manage to finish his new CD of piano based music in time for this year’s holidays, Jim Hudak will have five of his CD’s available for sale at Vic Stewart’s throughout the engagement. His Christmas song, “Let’s Trim The Christmas Tree,” is also available online as a digital download. Check out one of California’s most enduring restaurants, and one of its most significant musicians, this month at Vic’s. For reservations, call (925) 943-5666.
