Donny thanks so much. As usual you are a bank of info. I have heard some of those MP3's and have put them in my ITunes library. I was thinking more of live performance songs.

I like Gary's suggestion of Fiddler songs, maybe a short madly and finish with Hava N. At least that portion of the crowd will feel involved.

Have a great party Bernie.

I do it the other way. I play the Christmas Song as an instrumental in July.

Sadly, no one ever notices.

Oh well, HO...HO...HO, in remembrance of three of my favorite waitresses who moonlighted at another occupation.

I've always mixed the music I play at "Christmas/Holiday" gigs ...
Two weeks ago, while leaving an upscale AL venue, a woman complimented me on the music, but added, I hope next time you play some Hanukkah songs ... This is ghe first time that's ever happened ...
Here is one Jewish related song I've performed from time to time, and here is a little background:

Hi Tony
Thank you! That song is in my core memorized songs, but, until now, I didn't realize it was Jewish. I will use it.

Bernie

WOW! I bet I performed that song a thousand times and never knew it was Jewish/Hebrew. Now I know why those ladies at the Jewish retirement community loved it so much. When I was a kid I thought The Andrews Sisters were singing "Buy beer mister Shane." I guess I was in my early 30s when I first tried to perform this song, and did it with a 6-sting guitar sitting on a bar stool in a blood and guts saloon in Baltimore County - WOW, that was a long time ago.

Thanks for the memories, Tony,

Gary
