Upper East Side, NY 10022
Description: In the spirit of outrageous fun, The Mama Doni Band will bring its inimitable brand of "funky music with a Jewish twist" to a family "Chanukah Fever" show. Mama Doni promises plenty of surprises throughout her Chanukah concert, including giveaways of chocolate gelt and Mama Doni CDs, courtesy of Streit's Matzo. Kids will boogie like a dreidel, air guitar with the band ("Latke Man" style), join in an applesauce vs. sour cream rock-along, and chime in on the eternal question of "Chanukah" or "Hannukah." Rocking out for Chanukah, Mama Doni & The Mama Doni Band will perform such latkelicious songs as "The Funky Gold Menorah," "La Vida Dreidel," and "I Say Chanukah (You Say Hanukah!)." The band will go all out with a wild bluegrass version of "Honey, This Ain't Money" (about Chanukah gelt), and, as a special treat, several new songs will be showcased, including "The Land of Sufganiyot" (a reggae song about jelly doughnuts). Hip young kids and their even hipper parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles should come prepared to get up and dance at these spirited Jewish rock concerts.
