Casey James at the XTU Toy Truck Parade in Philadelphia

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Casey James was the Grand Marshal at radio station 92.5 XTU‘s 12th Annual Toy Truck parade, a celebration of giving which benefits C.A.P.E., a local child abuse prevention charity organization.

The parade went through the streets of Philadelphia, ending in an acoustic concert by Casey James in front of a crowd of enthusiastic fans.

Set List

Let’s Don’t Call It A Night

Bonus Video

XTU put together two videos highlighting Casey’s Christmas song and “The Good Life” and splicing in scenes from the parade and show. They include a brief interview with Casey and Razz on the Radio (the DJ who first played LDCIAN) and behind-the-scenes video of Casey during the parade. At about 2:27 in the first video, you can see Casey waving to two of the fans who took the videos and photos here, Margherita (wearing the Casey T-shirt) and Laura.


XTU posted photos from the concert on their website, the rest of which you can see here.

    Wow! Casey has another coat besides that brown one he’s always wearing? Really? Did he buy another t-shirt too? Maybe a new pair of jeans? Are we approaching the end of times? LOL. Just havin’ some fun.

    He looks great. As usual. The guy could wear a paper bag and he’d look good. But gosh, I’d love to see him in some more high-gloss stuff on a more frequent basis. Which is totally selfish, but what the heck. A woman can dream.

  2. I loved Casey in his longer coat!!!!! He looks amazing today, as always! Hope he kept warm! I love his style and I love that he is happy with what he has, and materialistic things are not an issue. I am proud of him and proud to be his fan…. to me that makes Casey more real and down to Earth! Love the Christmas song… Please Come Home For Christmas! Just might be my favorite carol this Christmas!:)

  3. Kathy says:

    Yes he said he bought a winter coat last night because he was cold. Looks good but a bit thinner.

  4. Tina Deraco says:

    I’m devastated! I had no idea he would be performing or I would have made the trip down. Looks as though he was inside a building too? Also need some feedback: is it my computer? The sound quality I’m getting is very garbbled…

    • TCJB says:

      Tina, it’s weird because when I was in the conference room, the sound was really clear. I’m not sure what the issue is. We’ll have video up shortly.

  5. Tina Deraco says:

    Thank you very much! I’ll look forward to listening and watching!
    Can anyone tell me if Casey was playing in or outdoors today? (It’s easier for me to accept that I missed it if he was outside; mostly because I don’t fair too well standing on streets when the weather is in the 30’s:-)

    • Jen T. says:

      We thought it was going to be outside, but it was actually in the lobby of the Wells Fargo Center. It was still cold in there though. They must be keeping it cold for the ice rink.

      • Tina Deraco says:

        Thanks Jen! I can’t stand in the cold; so I really appreciate your info. It makes my disappointment more palatable:-). I’m glad so many other people had an opportunity to see Casey perform! Merry Christmas!


    A lot of men in the audience …. looks like they are enjoying themselves!!!


    The projected audio is great! He gave a very powerful awesome excellent professional performance !!!!! Could not ask for more~~!!

  8. Patti (MsVerucas) says:

    hee hee…look at the lady’s face in the XTU picture with the girl in the pink jacket with her. I’ve seen that look before, lol ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I like seeing all the men in the audience too.

    • Cherrel Underwood says:

      Funny, I noticed that lady’s face too as soon as I saw the photo! As you say, Patti—“seen that look before”!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the look of the longer, winter coat!!!

      • Patti (MsVerucas) says:

        yup Cherrel, and I mean that in a good way. You just get mesmerized listening to Casey play and sing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for sharing … I live in Philadelphia and me & my hubby was going to go to see Casey today, but hubby had to work, last minutes deadlines to meet for his company. I recognize the Wells Fargo where Casey is performing, we go there for most of our concerts ~~~ It’s looks like Casey is totally enjoying himself ~~~ I’m glad everyone who attended had a great time

  11. Jordan says:

    @Jen, yes Jen, it’s hockey season “Flyers” plus they are having shows for “Mickey’s Dare to Dream” so it has to be cold for the ice not to melt ~~~ I’m taking my grandchildren on December 26th to see “Mickey’s Dare to Dream” Ice Show (ฺ“ืฒ) (ฺ“ืฒ)

  12. Joan says:

    Like seeing all the men in the audience getting into him too. The broader the fan base the better. Like his new coat too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awesome video and pics’. It is so great for the fans to see Casey at these small venues. He really is all that everyone says he is ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone needs that chance to meet him when he isn’t rushed… it! If you get the opportunity to see him at one of these small venues, please take it. I don’t think there is much time left for that! Thanks everyone for sharing and posting your Casey adventures!

    Casey sounds great as always and I really love his new coat! Bet a lot of those guys (and maybe girls too) wish they could play the guitar like he does! ๐Ÿ™‚
