Get ready for three days of back-to-back-to-back rollicking Christmas concerts in the Ridge!

On Friday night, catch up with family at the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), where Uncle Jack plays a rock ’n’ roll show. The quartet promises to play the best songs of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, and will take the stage for a free show at 10 pm.

On Saturday, keep rocking all the way to Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. at 68th Street) for a holiday show by Full Disclosure. The rock and roll trio will play alternative, party, Motown, and classic holiday hits, along with covers of tunes by the Beatles, Maroon 5, Pink, and Bruno Mars. This free concert also starts at 10 pm.

On Sunday, mosey on down to the Gulf Coast (6901 Third Ave. at Bay Ridge Avenue) for a tropical Christmas show by neighborhood crooner Martin McQuade, accompanied by Pete Sokolow on the piano. The duo will play favorite melodies including “Christmas Island,” “Feliz Navidad,” and “Sleigh Ride in July.” And you can fully embrace the island vibe by pairing the tunes with the eatery’s tropically-inspired dishes and drinks. The free, three-hour songfest starts at 3 pm. Call (347) 662–6644 to reserve a table.

If you’re in a more classical mood on Sunday, stroll to Union Church (7915 Ridge Blvd. at 80th Street) for its Winter Baroque Concert, which will feature violinist Alex Shiozaki the taking on Vivaldi’s “Winter” interlude, followed by the full Union Church chorus belting out the “Oratorio de Noël,” or the “Christmas Oratorio” by Camille Saint-Saëns, accompanied by David Shuler on the organ. The concert kicks off at 4 pm, and there is a suggested $15 donation.
