"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 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
Passover Palooza will include a FREE Mama Doni concert and tours of the Streit’s Matzo Factory, where families can see Passover matzos being made.
For a sneak preview of Mama Doni's inimitable brand of "funky music with a Jewish twist," watch her "Mission Immatzoble" video HERE.
Mama Doni will get kids, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles up and dancing at Passover Palooza. Rocking out for Pesach, Mama Doni & The Mama Doni Band will play special-for-Passover songs like "Mission Immatzoble," "Rasta in Pasta" (a reggae tune about what can and can't be eaten during Passover), and "Disco Dayeinu," along with such matzolicious songs as "Jewish Cowgirl," "Mazel Tov" and Shabbat Shaboom."
Also featured at Passover Palooza will be Passover Prize Breaks, with an array of prizes for those with the correct answers to Passover questions, including boxes of Streit’s matzos, samples of Streit’s macaroons, Mama Doni’s famous “matzola” (Matzo Granola, made according to a recipe in her cookbook, Get Cooking! A Jewish American Family Cookbook), and assorted chocolate treats, along with CDs, posters, t-shirts, and download cards for a free Mama Doni Passover song.
Montclair, New Jersey-based Doni Zasloff, a.k.a. Mama Doni, is the lead singer/songwriter of The Mama Doni Band, honored with Parents' Choice Awards for their DVD Mama Doni's Jewish Holiday Party and their CDs Emunah and 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 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 contemporary American bluegrass, reggae, rock, disco, Latin, and klezmer, all woven together with a hip Jewish sensibility.
