Two bands with local roots will be the featured entertainers at Smokey Joe’s, a three-star glatt kosher BBQ venue in Teaneck.
New Brunswick’s own Jeff Baker, aka King Django, brings his Brooklyn-inflected Yiddish ska music to Smokey Joe’s on Saturday, Oct. 30, for two sets, beginning at 8:30 p.m. In honor of the band’s appearance, the club will offer a classic Jamaican dish of jerk chicken with plantains and rice.
The klezmer combo Tsu Fil Duvids, based in Highland Park, takes to Smokey Joe’s stage on Saturday, Nov. 6, for two sets beginning at 8:30 p.m. The name means “Too full of Davids” because almost everyone in the group is named David (in fact, their charter requires that all new band members must change their name to David).
There is a $5 charge for all musical performances. For more information, contact 201-836-7427 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
