One message, two totally different styles.

In case you haven't noticed — it's Christmas Day. Maybe you're sleeping off brunch, or maybe you're getting ready to celebrate the second night of Hanukkah (not everyone believes in Santa, or Jesus Christ, yo), but you should definitely take a look at these videos of two Tampa Bay artists spreading a little holiday joy.

The first one, above, finds Tampa DJ Charles Ku chopping the shit out of the Tall Black Guy remix of Donny Hathaway's "For You This Christmas" for a quick 90-second routine, and the second, below, features St. Pete's Roger Lanfranchi plucking his way through an ethereal arrangement of "Winter Wonderland."

Lanfranchi learned the arrangement a few years back and recorded it under the Ophelia moniker.

"Just wanted to spread some holiday cheer man," is all Ku had to say to CL in a message. So, yeah, happy holidays to you and all yours from the team at CL music. Thanks for reading!
