    Details

    ABOUT GOOD FOR THE JEWS Rob Tannenbaum was described as “snarky” by the Village Voice, “snarky” by New York Magazine and “diminutive” by the Boston Globe. His song “It’s Good To Be A Jew At Christmas” appeared on the 2005 Shout Factory CD Now That Sounds Kosher, alongside songs by Mel Brooks, Tom Lehrer, and Kinky Friedman. He earned his first theatrical credit for helping John Leguizamo write “Sexaholix,” a Tony-nominated Broadway comedy; was interviewed by Terry Gross of NPR for a “Fresh Air” segment; has performed at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal; and was named one of “New York’s Best Emerging Jewish Artists” at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in 2006. The music editor of Blender magazine and a member of the Jewish-owned media elite, he appears frequently on VH1, and created and starred in the VH1 special “So Jewtastic.” Like a pork chop, he’s bad to the bone. David Fagin, mouthpiece for indie pop icons The Rosenbergs, is currently on tour with Tannenbaum “because Staples isn’t hiring right now.” David has been a guest on the Dennis Miller and Howard Stern shows, and finally made his parents proud when he lectured on the business of music at Harvard Law School. His songs have been heard on Dawson’s Creek, Party Of Five, One Tree Hill and Queer Eye, among other TV shows. AllMusic.com hailed the Rosenbergs for “a clever, incessantly buoyant pop sound that could compare to the brightest days of Cheap Trick.” David hopes to one day open a hair salon in Boca called “Bagels and Locks.” ABOUT THE KLEZMATICS The Klezmatics are globally-renowned world music superstars — and the only klezmer band to win a Grammy award. The Klezmatics emerged out of the vibrant cultural scene of New York City’s East Village in 1986 with klezmer steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism and eclectic musical influences including Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk. In the course of over twenty years and nine albums they have stubbornly continued making music that is wild, mystical, provocative, reflective and ecstatically danceable. ABOUT JOSHUA NELSON Cultural traditions typically change slowly, over the long arc of history. But occasionally a folk cultural innovation emerges that are startlingly fresh in its outward manifestation, although it remains deeply—even reverently—traditional at its core. You may have never heard of “kosher gospel” music before today, but the inspirational performances of Joshua Nelson, the creator of this style, will surely call out to your soul.
