On December 14, Joe's Pub showcased the second annual concert presentation of New York City Christmas, featuring special guests Sherie Rene Scott and Raul Esparza. Tony Award winner Harriet Harris hosted the event, which was presented by ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) and Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records. Stafford Arima (London's Ragtime, Altar Boyz) directed the concert.

The concert also featured performances by Orfeh, Sally Wilfert, Sierra Boggess, Chester Gregory II, Andy Karl, Tyler Maynard, Lindsay Mendez, Tory Ross, and Anya Singleton.

Lynne Shankel (on piano), who conceived and orchestrated the event, musical directed with Joe Mowatt on drums/percussion, Randy Landau on bass, and Peter Calo and Michael Aarons on guitar.

The New York City Christmas Concert album is inspired by the December 2008 Off-Broadway event that raised money for ASTEP. Album proceeds go to ASTEP, founded by Broadway music director Mary-Mitchell Campbell.
