The dudes of Kansas Stone are always ready for a celebration, so it’s no surprise to us that they’re jacked up for Christmas.
We caught up with Brian and Matt for a holiday round of 5 Quick Questions, and the guys also shared Brian’s favourite recipe from his nana.
Have a look, make some dessert – and enjoy!

Q) Did you guys have a favourite Christmas song when you were kids?
Brian) Elvis Presley’s Blue Christmas
Matt) Johnny Marks/Brenda Lee’s Rock’n Around The Xmas Tree
Q) Do you have a favourite Christmas song to play together?
Brian) The only Christmas song we have ever really played is White Christmas because it is real… filled with heart and soul. Not overly commercialized… Well we also wrote a Christmas song last year that is really fun and maybe you’ll hear it one day in the future if we ever do a Kansas Christmas album hahaha

Brian) It would be Long Haired Christmas by Kansas Stone featuring Chris Stapleton, The Cadillac Three, Steven Tyler and Zakk Wylde… sounds pretty rad to me lol
Q) What is your favourite beverage for a holiday party?
Brian) A Miami Vice so I can pretend I’m on vacation in the warm sun and not in the snow lol… or a beer… any beer, as long as it’s cold
Matt) I’d go for Baileys and coffee (Spanish coffee)
Q) If you could only have 1 dessert after Christmas dinner, what would you choose?
