Jump to the roots-reggae-pop tunes of Josh and the Jamtones with sounds that bring the whole family to their feet. Fronted by singer/songwriter Josh Shriber, the Jamtones have taken the kindie music scene by storm with their rock-and-roll dance parties. Hear re-imagined classics such as "O Hanukkah," songs with a modern twist including "Hanukkah Time," and "Let Your Lite Shine Bright" to get into the spirit of the holiday.
When asked about his music Shriber shares, "our unique sound is as if Paul Simon was hanging out with the Mighty Bostones at Bob Marley's house."
Josh will be joined by a cast of Jamtone Pals, adding their magical musical talents to each of the songs including; Kara Kulpa on mandolin, violin and vocals, pianist and award-winning composer/arranger Steve Bass, and 2021 Grammy winner Joanie Leeds will join Josh for a brand new Hanukkah original.
