Meshugga Beach Party 

Hot Rod Hanukkah

This Hanukkah, forget about that shiksa Barbara Ann and instead feast your fascinations on Barbara Leibowitz, zaftig beach babe. No worries goyim, there is no need to be a longtime surfer or full-time Jewish person to enjoy the tuneage of Meshugga Beach Party’s Hot Rod Hanukkah this holiday season.

The band performs as fully geared-out Orthodox-style rabbis: black suit, beard with peyos, tallis and black hat. Recognizable instrumental versions of classic holiday tunes such as “Oh Hanukkah” and “Dreidel, Dreidel” abound. While the band’s original tunes have the same sort of cheeky sound as the aforementioned tracks, they aren’t exactly offering groundbreaking surf music. That said, they are still more entertaining than Adam Sandler’s “Hanukkah Song.” But if you’re like me, an unabashed clarinet hater, MBP’s version of “Hava Nagila” might make those eight crazy nights a whole lot more bearable
