The Mama Doni Band

What a lineup for this year’s Boulder Jewish Festival! Get ready for a rocking good time, as the 18th Annual Boulder Jewish Festival features music for all ages.

Mama Doni brings a new twist to “Jewish” music. Quirky, funny, and always unpredictable, Doni’s music ventures through dance beats, Latin pop, “Jewgrass” hoe-downs, and dazzling disco ditties to make latkes, dreidels and Yiddish expressions cooler than ever. Recognized in The New York TimesLA TimesThe Jewish Daily ForwardNew York PostThe Star-LedgerThe RecordTime Out New York KidsNew Jersey Jewish NewsThe Jewish WeekJewish Woman International Magazine, and more, The Mama Doni Band delights families throughout the country.

Sherefe is a group of musicians in Boulder, CO, who play music from the Balkans, Turkey and the Middle East, and bring Sephardic music to the festival stage. Newcomer Bryan Zive has played worldwide,  and is included on Jewish Rock Radio as a featured emerging artist.

Rounding out the performances, Cowboy HershSheldon Sands and the Boulder Klezmer Consort, and Or Zimrah all return to the Festival this year. The full schedule can be found here.

The Boulder Jewish Festival takes place on Sunday, June 10, 11 am to 5 pm. Artists are on 3 blocks of the Pearl Street Mall – from mid-1200 (the rocks or Peppercorn, depending on your perspective!) to mid-1400 (the animals – or Starbucks). Great food and the main entertainment tent are on the 1300 block, and nonprofit community organizations and kids activities fill the Courthouse Lawn.  Free parking in city lots – or ride your bike! See you there!
