Courtesy of HDNET MOVIESIf you find you’ve got too much time on your hands this holiday season, here’s a cool way to spend some of it: Styx‘s Tommy Shaw will be hosting the HDNET MOVIES channel’s “Not So Silent Nights” event, a weeklong series of rock-themed films running from Monday, December 5, to Sunday, December 11.

The “Not So Silent Nights” series airs at 7 p.m. ET on each night, and includes the screenings of two different rock-themed flicks — a feature film and a rockumentary — per evening. Among the movies being shown are flicks starring or focusing on Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Prince, Bob Marley, Roger Waters, KISS and The Who. Many of the films screened during the event will be getting their network premieres.

“Grab your favorite concert T-shirts and suit up for the shows!” says Shaw about the series.

Adds HDNET MOVIES executive Rachael Weaver, “[Tommy] has a great deal of knowledge and respect for rock, and it was truly an honor to be able to work with him and learn from his unparalleled experiences in the industry as he presents this incredible lineup.”

In conjunction with the rock-film extravaganza, HDNET MOVIES has launched a contest offering the chance to win a special Tommy Shaw prize pack and other items. The grand prize winner will receive either a guitar signed by Shaw or two tickets to Styx and ex-Eagles guitarist Don Felder‘s joint concert engagement at The Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas, which runs from January 6 to January 14, 2017. Other prizes being given away include autographed Styx albums and tickets to shows on the band’s 2017 summer tour. Enter now being visiting and choosing your favorite film being shown during the marathon.
