The Klezmer Music Foundation presents Hanukkah Concert with Rabbi Joe Black and Maxwell Street Klezmer Band, featuring Chicago’s Maxwell Street Klezmer Band with special guest artist, singer-songwriter Rabbi Joe Black of Temple Emanuel in Denver. They will be playing songs from their album, “Eight Nights of Joy,” a holiday album featuring classic Hanukkah sing-a-long songs such as “Oh Hanukkah” and “The Dreidel Song,” as well as Rabbi Black’s contemporary Hanukkah songs such as “Judah Maccabee” and “Soufganiot.” Rabbi Joe Black and Maxwell Street engage and entertain audiences of all ages. While Rabbi Black’s performances are lighthearted and filled with humor, Rabbi Black also touches upon serious topics such as finding awe in everyday life, and pursuing social justice.
Maxwell Street Klezmer Band will play their lively blend of traditional Eastern European Jewish music and quirky originality. This show will include Maxwell Street’s original Hanukkah compositions such as “Can You See the Hanukkah Lights?” and “Crazy Dreidel.”
Advance tickets are $18 (kids 12 and under $12); tickets at the door are $22 (kids 12 and under $15).
