“Her stage name may sound as if it belongs on a jar of pasta sauce, but Mama Doni is an indisputably Jewish performer. Doni Zasloff in real life, she specializes in putting a Jewish spin on all kinds of musical styles, including reggae, rock, disco and Latin." — The New York Times

"Mama Doni makes a zany musical chicken soup of reggae, rock, disco, Latin, klezmer, and other styles." The Boston Globe


There has never been a mama quite like Mama Doni, who manages to score a perfect 10 in the world of family music with a joyful celebration of Jewish tradition, culture, and ruach (spirit).

Mama Doni promised plenty of surprises throughout her Chanukah performance, including giveaways of chocolate gelt and Mama Doni CDs, courtesy of Streit's Matzoh! 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 "Hanukah."

Mama Doni Band3_photo credit Andrew Lepley_72dpiRocking out for Chanukah, Mama Doni & The Mama Doni Band will perform such latkelicious songs as "The Land of Sufganiyot" (a reggae song about jelly doughnuts), "The Funky Gold Menorah," "La Vida Dreidel," "I Say Chanukah (You Say Hanukah!)," and even a wild bluegrass version of "Honey, This Ain't Money" (about Chanukah gelt).

Hip young kids and their even hipper parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are encouraged to get up and dance at this spirited Jewish rock concert. Chanukah will never be the same!
