Juanito Bandito


TJ started his career by dropping out of dental school at THE Ohio State University to pursue a life somewhere away from the beaten path. After that scary (at the time) decision it’s been one adventure after another leading somehow to over 10 years of original musical productions and a career that no one could have predicted. TJ lives in Smithfield with his beautiful wife Erin, their 4 boys Carter (13), Tanner (12), Hayden (9), KJ (7), a huge goldendoodle pup named Koda, and a little baby brother due in April 2018! He’s obsessed with his family, basketball, and collecting awesome kicks. He posts awesomeness regularly on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube (search for: TeejDavis). Look him up!



"Thank you to the real “Man Up North” who has turned this “bad guy’s” dreams into reality! Mucho love and gracias to everyone past and present who has sacrificed to make this show so wonderful. The message it teaches is true and important!"

What's your favorite holiday food?


Anything with vanilla ice cream involved.


If you could be one of Santa's reindeer, which would it be and why?


Rudolph fo' shizzle. I'm the kind of reindeer who doesn't mind looking a little different as long as I get to be out in front where the good views are!


What's your favorite Christmas song and why?


I love all of the Santa Claus songs, especially now that I've spent some years thinking about what he represents and that relates to my family. It's amazing how much symbolism is found in the stories we tell each other about the "Big Guy Up North."


If you could work in one area of Santa's workshop, which would it be?


Sporting goods. Shoe design!


What's your favorite Christmas movie and why?


As far as Christmas movies go in my opinion, there is "Elf" and then there are the rest of them. If you don't agree with me, you're probably a cotton-headed ninnymuggins.


If you could have one thing for Christmas this year, what would it be?


For everyone in the entire world to reach out say hi on Instagram or the Facebooks! Look up: TeejDavis
