Ahoy Vey! Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Schmaltz!
On Saturday, November 7th, 2015, from 7 - 9 pm, Millie & the Mentshn Present the Premiere of Ahoy Vey! Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Schmaltz!, a Multimedia Music Concert including music in Ladino (ancient Spanish), Yiddish, Hebrew, and English, with translations in the program notes.

If you missed their sold out "Heavy Mettle" concerts in Boise, ID, Tacoma, Bellingham, Lynden, and Bellevue, WA, here's your chance to see Millie & the Mentshn back in Bellingham. Enjoy this exciting style of music in conjunction with entertaining stories and a one-of-a-kind slide show.  

In this tangled web of tales from the time of the Spanish Inquisition, an unlikely group of swashbuckling Sephardi Jews took to the high-seas to escape persecution and ultimately allied with other European powers to attack Spanish fleets and protect Jews in-hiding. From a pirate Rabbi who kept kosher food aboard his privateer to ships bearing names such as Prophet Samuel and Queen Esther, these are stories that were left out of the history books until now!  

Familiar songs from Irving Berlin, J. S. Bach, Paul Simon, and Leonard Bernstein are woven in along with other songs pirated from across the seas. The program is loaded with typical Millie & the Mentshn lighthearted humor, parodies, costumes, and lots of fun family entertainment in addition to history, stories, and pictures.

Millie & the Mentshn is a group of classically trained musicians who play world music that ranges from Prokofiev to Gershwin to Latin to dance-in-the-aisle Klezmer. Audiences of all cultural backgrounds enjoy the unusual combination of instruments, the intricate harmonies, and the variety of musical styles and traditions. The band has toured in the U.S. and internationally.

What do critics have to say about this group of talented, energetic musicians:

This Klezmer is complete with cowboy hats and a violinist jumping and running around the stage!" TC Jewfolk

"This is not your mother's Klezmer!" TC JEWFOLK

"The amazing Bellingham Klezmer band Millie & the Mentshn could stir passions in a stone statue."  Whatcom Independent, Christopher Key

"They will make you laugh and cry and dance and sing along all within the confines of a single program."   Whatcom Independent, Christopher Key

MTM crowned the "World's Greatest Klezmer Band" by TCJewfolk
