Online Review:  Lox & Vodka -- Heavy Shtetl, "I love this album!"  George Robinson, Author of Essential Judaism, Published in hardcover by Pocket Books

"I've been listening to your tapes in my car when I drive around and I'm trying to pick an appropriate piece, or section of a piece to have along with our reception photographs (for our videotape). I keep falling in love, again and again, with your music. I've become a BIG fan! And the funny thing is that no matter how many times I hear a particular piece, it's all full with so much energy and life, it's like the first time I'm hearing it! Amazing."

"Through Heavy Shtetl Lox & Vodka makes a wonderful and important contribution to Jewish music. It makes it alive in a vibrant and exciting way."

Tracy Salkowitz, Executive Director, American Jewish Congress, Northern Pacific Region

"Lox & Vodka's album Heavy Shtetl adds an exciting flaovr, both in our gallery and in the stuido where I do my painting. The music creates a shtetl mood - we enjoy it very much!"

The Westchester Jewish Week Logo"Celebrate Shabbat!" (Gan Ha Yeled/Adas Israel of Washington D.C.)
"Caron Dale, leader of D.C.'s excellent klezmer band Lox and Vodka, is also an early childhood educator, and this charming CD is the product of her work under that hat.  Imagine Woody Guthrie's children's songs gone Jewish, and you'll have some idea what this set is like.  Most of the musicians are members of Lox and Vodka, so the musicianship is on a pretty high level, but young children will be utterly unintimidated.  And adults will be pleased too.  Not the sort of thing I normally care for, but this is a keeper."

"We bought your "Celebrate Shabbat" CD and my 2 1/2 year old son Adam LOVES it! We have to listen to it every time we're in the car (and I mean EVERY TIME since we bought it - "shabbat CD in mommy's car" he says). He just about knows all the words! (and we do too!). After most of the songs he lets out a "good song" and during the Shabbat Shalom - hey! song, he almost always substitutes a new word for 'hey' (it could be firetruck, boat, pretzel, museum, noo noo car - whatever!! - it's very cute)."

Ginger

"What smiles and joy on my children’s faces this CD has brought not only make Shabbat special, but everyday."

Hungry for Music's* twenty-first CD release is an eclectic collection of twenty Chanukah songs entitled "A Chanukah Feast." On "A Chanukah Feast" you will find everything from klezmer to honky tonk to hip hop and more.  There are traditional Chanukah songs as well as original ones.

Lox & Vodka is delighted to have been asked to contribute to this CD.  We recorded, "These Chanukah Lights Are A Sign," with original lyrics by our own Caron Dale, put to a traditional gospel melody.

"... Then Lox and Vodka, from slightly to the north in Washington, DC, do a rather excellent Jewish take on the old spiritual, "These Chanukah lights are a sign," ... Now, this is a great way to celebrate the Festival of Lights! Enjoy."
