Paul Shapiro's Ribs & Brisket Revue celebrates the unique era when Jewish music was merging into the American mainstream. Blending jazz, Yiddish swing, R&B, klezmer, and humor, this joyous ensemble swings hard and is endlessly entertaining. Featuring vocalists Cilla Owens and Eleanor Reissa, this program features the 1950s repertoire that underscores The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, particularly the music of the Barry Sisters. The band features Jerry Koran on piano, Dave Hofstra on bass, and Tony Lewis on drums.
