Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.
This week’s performer is Yid Vicious (Hanukkah Rocks!)
Don’t let their name fool you: the seven members of this group have proven themselves to be decidedly soft and cuddly with a sweet and gooey center inside. Their Yiddish dance beats will have you bouncing out of your seats as you enjoy this special holiday performance, Hanukkah Rocks! With a musical arsenal of fiddle, clarinets, saxophones, accordion, French horn, tuba, guitar, Theremin and drums, Yid Vicious blends old world Yiddish dance tunes with new and unusual sounds!
This year’s Hanukkah Rocks! concert features special guests Dave Adler (The Gomers, Ken Lonnquist’s Kenland Band) and Maggie Weiser (So Dang Yang, Shakey). Join the Yid Vicious gang for traditional klezmer dance tunes alongside modern fare including a Klezed-up version of The Gomers’ classic “Jewish Rapper” and Debbie Friedman’s Hanukkah disco chestnut, “The Latke Song.”
