Last week, Brothers Lazaroff threw its first Hanukkah Hullabaloo after the Kinky Friedman show at Off Broadway. Performing with Rabbi James Stone Goodman, Will Soll's Klezmer Conspiracy and the Vaad, the group recited poetry, improvised in traditional European folk style and even cooked latkes on stage.

The night was a sufficient success that the whole crew decided to head to the studio to create an accompanying record. They emerged from Red Pill Studios a week later with an album centered on the reciting of the Eight Nights poems by Rabbi Goodman, backed by the musicians. They posted the album online on the first day of Hanukkah for $10, and all proceeds go to benefit the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry. Two and a half days in, the tally stands at $1,600. Listen below, and donate by heading to the Bandcamp page.
