Dr. Elmo
Custom scripts, songs and novelty shows
for any day of the year.

Dr. Elmo’s allotted fifteen minutes of fame should have run out 25 years ago, when his song, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” received its first radio play in 1979. But unlike disco, 8-tracks and platform shoes, Dr. Elmo's cheerfully subversive holiday song is still popular – having long since replaced Bing Crosby's “White Christmas” as America's most requested Christmas song.

Each December, radio stations and presenters throughout the country call Dr. Elmo for his Christmas commentary and live-on-air renditions of “that Grandma song," plus his newest releases – which this year included “Christmas without Martha” and “Christmas across the USA.” Dr Elmo’s expansive repertoire features numerous secular, novelty, and comical songs written with Rita Abrams. He has become a living American Icon in holiday music, and his voice has been a recognizable favorite over the airwaves for years now.

She rejuvenates madcap gems of yesteryear with a modern twist - all the while bedecked in glamorous vintage attire! Cassiopeia's sassy and sensational charisma will have your guests singing and dancing away. She walks on stilts too! Vocalists and ensembles show also available.
