The two recently spoke to Nancy Kruh of,"It's very basic," Joel Smallbone, 36, tells PEOPLE, explaining how he and his brother cracked the "Little Drummer Boy" code. "This is a song about a boy who's playing a drum for Jesus. And here we are, seven guys [in the band] playing a load of drums. Why didn't Bing Crosby or Frank Sinatra ever think of this? We just feel like these slightly dumb, very obvious Australian fellows who did something that, for whatever reason, no one ever thought of."

SIGGNO has been around for almost 15 years, a group whose freshness continues to this day.

This weekend Siggno with Sólido and Chris Pérez is at the Arena Theatre with their "ReconeXion Tour XXI".

The group is made up of the original union of musicians from different regions of Texas and Florida, SIGGNO is characterized by being a musical group that exudes originality both in its musical proposal and in its image.

His first production, titled “Al Principio,” quickly caught on with audiences throughout Texas, and opened the doors to the music industry for them. In 2002, SIGGNO recorded their second album, “Por amor”, and it became a watershed in the career of this young band, as it earned them the highest recognition that any musician could wish for in the American Union: his nomination for the prestigious Grammy Award.
