Shalom Comrades! Steven Schub here, wishing you all the very Happiest of Holidays! I also wanted to share this news:
I will be headed to Israel to play the role of Avraham 'Yair' Stern - Actor, Poet and the founder & leader of ‘LEHI' (the "Fighters for the Freedom of Israel” aka "The Stern Group") in the World Premiere of a new play by historian Zev Golan entitled “The Ghosts of Mizrachi Bet Street” at the Jerusalem Theatre in Israel. The play opens on Wednesday January 20th 2016. For tickets and showtimes go to:
http://www.jerusalem-theatre.co.il/webSite/Modules/events/event.aspx?id=2261&lan=2
Who was 'Yair' Stern? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avraham_Stern
And with that said, I'll just let Yair himself have the last word:
“Reality is… what force of will and longing for a goal make it. Lift your
head, straighten your spine and let your voice sing. With our strength we will make the world dance.”

With love & light,
SS

"The Fenwicks are a twisted yet eloquent fusion... impossible to forget, and with a story the producer's of VH-1's 'Behind the Music' would slaver over." - Mark Faulkner, Florida Times Union

"The story of this band is legend... America's only Afro-Celtic Yiddish Ska band is like Oingo Boingo on steroids... shifting seamlessly from circus music to booty shaking third wave ska at it's best. With an insane, hysterical, vaudevillian stage show, deranged lyrics and a frenzied assault on everything sacred, The Fenwicks will not disappoint". 
Skratch Magazine

"Bold and powerful. Blew my mind. I have never heard anything like this before". 
-Southern Ska Magazine

"How can you not like this band? A band that swings and rocks at the same time.... A lead singer, who is at heart a showman... the best live band I have heard".
-Silly Little Trouser Monkey Magazine

"What is this?! The Fenwicks are not a normal band. Blending punk, ska, pop and klezmer, they sound like something you'd hear at a mutant cross-cultural wedding. They are a band with a message: enjoy one's life! The songs ask you to live with integrity, love with sincerity, and act to make your life better. The Fenwicks promote joy both in theory and in practice they sing and perform with the joy they preach". 
G. Murray Thomas 
The Independent

"Diverse and electrifying. These guys make you want to cavort with wild spasms of joy, ruthlessly kicking your legs up with reckless abandon. Their infectious grooves leave you begging for more. Spin this disc at your next big party, and it will not soon be forgotten"

Tonight Saturday Night Live remembers Cousin Jenna! 
Any true Fen-Head and/or 'Wick-Head knows who “Cousin Jenna” was (see here: http://www.thefenwicks.com/av/mp3/Track%2011.mp3 ) Without Jenna Krempel, The Fenwicks could have never ever have survived or flourished for as long as we did. She was there from the very beginning- more like a big sister than a cousin. Her apartment on West 46th Street was our shelter & my refuge before the launch of ever single Fenwick tour & it was the Center of the Epicenter- of everything that makes New York City the Center of the Universe. Jenna helped mend my battle regalia, mend my soul and mend my ways. I loved her dearly, as EVERYONE who knew Jenna loved her dearly. Jenna was a costume designer and a seamstress on Broadway ("Joseph & the Amazing Color Dreamcoat” , "I’m Not Rappaport”, "The Radio City Hall Christmas Spectacular" and on and on...) She also worked the Wardrobe Crew on Saturday Night Live for almost 20 years (dressing everyone from Rachel Dratch to Tracy Morgan to Fred Armisen); and to top it all off, she was also the Vice-President & Secretary-Treasurer of Broadway’s Theatrical Wardrobe Union (Local 764). Jenna passed away recently (she worked tirelessly until the very end) and thus tonight SNL will be honoring her on-air. Tune in 11:30pm on NBC. And celebrate the life-force & legacy of woman of valor, hilarity and unbelievable strength. Long live Jenna! Forever!
