"Witty and outrageously lampooning...full of catchy melodies, clever arrangements, and lyrics that yield satiric gems.” —The Washington Post Former Rockapella co-founder and lead singer Sean Altman affectionately skewers Jewish identity in his hilarious hit show. Featuring tuneful, bitingly satirical songs with titles like “Just Too Jew for You,” “Be My Little Shabbos Goy,” and the Passover sing-along “They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived, Let’s Eat),” Altman’s delightfully warped tunes are irreverent fun for Jews and gentiles alike.

Ramsch und Rosen are two Austrian musicians, Julia Lacherstorfer and Simon Zöchbauer, who rummage for old tunes among old paintings, manuscripts, and between the lines of old letters, finding a treasure trove of material underneath the layers of dust. Their music bridges past and present - a past where the clocks tick differently and a present where we can connect to the entire world and choose from an immeasurable number of opinions, and pick the most precious, most suitable items for our individual character. The result: A type of unique music that is inseparable from the people who perform it. It needs to take place within them, earnestly, yet with a wink. The playground they are moving on contains traditional tunes and songs from Austria as well as improvisations and their own written tunes.
