After a two-year hiatus brought on by the passing of the Torah to the next generation (aka the birth of their children), The Jewbadours revive their annual holiday farewell show, The Last Schmaltz. Staged on the first night of Hanukkah, The Last Schmaltz is an alternative celebration of Pop music’s guiltiest pleasures through the lens of the New York Jewish Experience. Joined by a cavalcade of guest stars, Jew-ish luminaries from the across the music and comedy worlds, The Jewbadours will retell the story of the Maccabees as only they can: through the eyes of two Jewish native New Yorkers with minimal knowledge of the actual story of Hanukkah. 

Ariel Hammerstein (Ari Hest) and Yakob Veivelman (Julian Velard) grew up grew up obsessed with the smooth sounds of the post-disco, pre-new wave era. Devoted to the halcyon days of Pop radio, it became their life's mission to bring the hits and lesser-known classics of the '70s and '80s back to the masses. Their catalog is a virtual A to Z of the Billboard charts from three and half decades past: Ambrosia to Xanadu, all interpreted through the prism of the New York Jewish experience. As always, they will be backed by The Full Minyan Band, a group of NYC’s finest Semitic sidemen who’ve played with the likes of Joe Jackson, Christopher Cross, Suzanne Vega, Joe Jackson, Rod Stewart, Rob Thomas, The Lords of 52nd Street, any many more. 

Like all Joe's Pub shows, all ages are welcome, but please be aware that performances may include adult language and topics.
