Leading up to 2020 holiday season in which live vocal performances were simply impossible, the men of NO PROMISES were facing the prospect of discontinuing a holiday tradition enjoyed by thousands every year since 2015. So they pivoted, tapping Cider Mill Productions and Over-The-Rhine's beautiful Memorial Hall for a live-recorded holiday soiree. More than 90 donors contributed nearly $7,000 to cover production expenses and venue rental. The result was a visually and acoustically stunning video- on-demand experience that created a bridge to the resumption of live holiday performances in 2021.

But it wasn't all streaming video and waiting around for conditions to improve. In summer 2021, NO PROMISES joined forces with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra in a show called "The Boy Band Diaries." Performed on outdoor stages in Covington, Ft. Thomas and Middletown, the collaboration surveyed a century of a male harmony singing, from the Ink Spots and the Hi-Los, through The Beach Boys and Motown, all the way to groups like NSYNC and Home Free. Four selections from "The Boy Band Diaries" will be included in the 2021 "Christmas With No Promises" set.
