"Her stage name may sound as if it belonged on a jar of pasta sauce, but Mama Doni is an indisputably Jewish performer. Doni Zasloff Thomas in real life, she specializes in putting a Jewish spin on all kinds of musical styles, including reggae, rock, disco and Latin." – The New York Times
MONTCLAIR, NJ -- Mama Doni & The Mama Doni Band will cook up a musical storm with a free family concert and book signing celebrating the release of Mama Doni's new book, Get Cooking! A Jewish American Family Cookbook & Rockin' Mama Doni Celebration (Behrman House Publishing, $19.95, available fall 2012) at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 18 at Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom, 555 Warwick Drive, Reading, PA.
The centerpiece of the festivities will be a full-length, rocking Mama Doni concert featuring an array of songs from the 29-track Mama Doni CD that's included with Get Cooking! A Jewish American Family Cookbook & Rockin' Mama Doni Celebration.
Mama Doni's Get Cooking! show will highlight music for the upcoming holiday season and beyond, with songs for Thanksgiving, Chanukah, and more. Kids and families should come prepared to groove to a Turkey in the Straw hoedown for Thanksgiving, celebrate Chanukah withsongs like "Latke Man" and "A Land Called Sufganiyot," look ahead to Purim and boogie to the Hamantaschen Dance, and of course join thefamous Challah Day conga line! Hip young kids and their even hipper parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles are all encouraged to get up and dance at this spirited Jewish rock concert.
Doni Zasloff Thomas, a.k.a. Mama Doni, is the lead singer/songwriter of The Mama Doni Band, honored with a Parents’ Choice® Award for their CD, Shabbat Shaboom, and winner of the Simcha Award for “Inspiring Joy Through Music” in competition with more than 100 bands from 15 different countries at the International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam. The band celebrates Jewish culture with irrepressible zest in its interactive family rock concerts filled with catchy pop songs that break the mold of traditional Jewish music. Quirky, offbeat, and unpredictable, The Mama Doni Band offers up a contagious and unexpected blend of reggae, rock, disco, Latin, klezmer and “Jewgrass” – all woven together with a hip Jewish sensibility.
