XMAS EVE IN D.C. (or thereabouts)


Once again this year, the good folks at Jammin Java have invited us to perform at their club on Christmas Eve (a/k/a the Worst Night of the Year To Be a Jew). This is now a tradition! What is this, our fifth year in a row there? Our fiftieth? Probably somewhere in between.

If you live in D.C. or the Northern Virginia area, please come celebrate with us on December 24th. We promise, it beats staying home and watching “It’s A Wonderful Life” yet again.

Jammin Java
227 Maple Ave in East Vienna, Virginia 22180
December 24, 2012 at 7 pm / $20 tickets
Call them at (703) 255-1566 with your annoying questions

Rob and David will sing all their hits songs, including “They Tried To Kill Us, We Survived, Let’s Eat,” “It’s Good To Be A Jew At Christmas,” “Goin’ Down To Boca,” “Reuben the Hook-Nosed Reindeer,” and MORE!


It exists!


Those of you who (are lucky enough to) have heard our song “Reuben The Hook-Nosed Reindeer” know there’s a line about Reuben cooking “blintzes for Blitzen.”

Recently, a friend told us about the book “Blintzes For Blitzen,” which is described as the story of “a reindeer who likes Jewish food, and celebrates Hanukkah with Bernie, a Jewish deli owner.” We’ve never met a deli owner named Bernie, but that’s no reason not to trade in ethnic stereotypes.

The book was published in 2010, so obviously, we were here first.


Pretty sure these authors stole our idea!
