For the fourth year in a row, the Hoboken Historical Museum asked me to lead a holiday sing-along, and for the third year in a row I invited my good pal Howard Olah-Reiken (of The Gordys) to join me. It’s just more fun to do a duet, I think. Howard and I harmonize well together, and he does great guitar solos, and he spends a lot of time worrying about mics and mic stands and amplification, so I don’t have to. Plus, he knows lots of Hanukah songs, so when we play together we can make the show truly multicultural: We sing in English, Spanish (Feliz Navidad), Hebrew and even Ladino, a Spanish version of Hebrew.
Watch this space for a photo or two from the event. We had a nice crowd, though it was a cold, drizzly Wednesday evening. There were many, mnay friendly and familiar faces in the crowd, though we did catch a few people reading the exhibits on the walls rather than singing along with us. (One great thing about the last couple of years as that I have stopped worrying so much about making every single audience member like me.)
Only three more peformances between now and the end of the year. Whee!
