They Tried to Kill Us

Metromix LA says GFTJ are “Eight times as awesome”

The raves are starting to come for our 7-city “Putting the Ha! in Hanukkah” tour. Today, we got this from Metromix LA: (more…)

We Have Posted a New Song

Hold on to your yarmulkes and your tefillin: Good For The Jews have posted a new song.

It’s called “Goin’ Down To Boca,” and Rob and David recorded it in Hoboken, NJ with our skillful and patient friend Tom Beaujour, at his fine recording studio. As always, we’re open to your opinions, as long as they are gushing or positive.

As you’ll also see, we’ve announced the dates of our annual “Putting the Ha! in Hanukkah” tour, starting December 21, which extensive research tells us is the first night of Hanukkah.

What the hell are you Jews doing???

That is a question we’ve been asked a lot lately: “What the hell is up with the band?”

We’re recently back from the Leeds International Jewish Performing Arts Festival*** where we played two soldout shows and, at the festival’s request, even added a third. Rob triumphed over jet lag; David ate the world’s greatest shwarma sandwich. Marc Salem, the mind-reader who did a Broadway show, caught one of our sets and told us how much he liked it. Can you guess what I’m thinking right now, Marc?

So right now, we’re making Big Plans. We’ll be in Houston in September, in Kansas City in November, and then our traditional Putting the Ha! in Hanukkah tour throughout December. For 2009, we’ve already booked shows in Providence and at the D.C. JCC.

***Couldn’t you have come up with a more catchy festival name, Leeds? Maybe “JewFest”? It’s probably not taken yet. Or even LeedsInt JewPerfArtsFest. Just something that would fit on a t-shirt.
