A blast from the past is set to play in Penticton this December, just in time for some iconic Christmas tunes. 

If you don't remember Boney M., you will definitely remember many of their songs including 'Rasputin' and the Christmas stable 'Mary's Boy Child'. While the group has long gone their separate ways, Boney M. still features original singer Liz Mitchell, will play Penticton's South Okanagan Events Centre Dec. 7. 

The band was at the forefront of disco in 1970s and early 1980s near the top of the charts with eight number one hits including 'Daddy Cool', 'Sunny', 'Ma Baker', 'Belfast', 'Rivers of Babylon' and 'Brown Girl in the Ring.'

They are accompanied by opening act Morgan James, a New York-based soul singer and songwriter.
