Biography

Rob Tannenbaum was described as “snarky” by the Village Voice, “snarky” by New York Magazine and “diminutive” by the Boston Globe. His song “It’s Good To Be A Jew At Christmas” appeared on the 2005 Shout Factory CD Now That Sounds Kosher, alongside songs by Mel Brooks, Tom Lehrer, and Kinky Friedman. He earned his first theatrical credit for helping John Leguizamo write “Sexaholix,” a Tony-nominated Broadway comedy; was interviewed by Terry Gross of NPR for a “Fresh Air” segment; has performed at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal; and was named one of “New York’s Best Emerging Jewish Artists” at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in 2006. The music editor of Blender magazine and a member of the Jewish-owned media elite, he appears frequently on VH1, and created and starred in the VH1 special “So Jewtastic.” Like a pork chop, he’s bad to the bone.

David Fagin, mouthpiece for indie pop icons The Rosenbergs, is currently on tour with Tannenbaum “because Staples isn’t hiring right now.” David has been a guest on the Dennis Miller and Howard Stern shows, and finally made his parents proud when he lectured on the business of music at Harvard Law School. His songs have been heard on Dawson’s Creek, Party Of Five, One Tree Hill and Queer Eye, among other TV shows. AllMusic.com hailed the Rosenbergs for “a clever, incessantly buoyant pop sound that could compare to the brightest days of Cheap Trick.” David hopes to one day open a hair salon in Boca called “Bagels and Locks.”
