Call him Sally Claus — “Ho-Ho-How ya doin’?” says Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti of Bethpage, who's presenting his third annual Christmas Show at NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Dec. 21.

“This show has a whole different vibe from any other performance that I do,” says Valentinetti, 24. “I feel like I’m among friends and family. It’s laid back with stories, jokes and music — like an evening at Sal’s house.”

Valentinetti isn’t the only one bringing the spirit of the season to Long Island. Check out these concerts for a cool yule:
