Great folks, great great band... deep modern Yiddish and world soul music, played with tremendous verve, soul, fun, thought, and masterful authority.
The concert to celebrate the CD release is at the

ShakeMore is an annual music (& other arts) festival/gathering, the dancing burbling brainchild of Jad and David Fair, of the band Half Japanese.
It occurred this year on the full moon, inside Sun Ra's suitcase, in the general vicinity of Inner and Outer Wigsville, bordering the hamlet of Leppoville, Maryland.
A splendid time was had by all.
This is what peace looks like.
Enjoy. All wonderful.
