The LeeVees, the long running Hanukkah-themed project of Guster’s Adam Gardner and The Zambonis’ Dave Schneider, have confirmed a pair of holiday shows. On Friday, December 20, a few days before the Jewish celebration begins, the band will headline a free show at Bridgeport, CT’s Walrus + Carpenter—a restaurant that focuses on Southern dishes and BBQ—as part of the (It’s an Almost Kosher) Chanukah Party. Then, on Sunday, December 22—the first official night of the Festival of Lights—the group will perform in the Big Easy at the Southern Friend Chanukah celebration held at the New Orleans JCC – Uptown. That event runs from 4-6 pm and promises that the band will “light the menorah, nosh on Southern fried chicken and latkes.” 

Guster will make their debut at New York’s Terminal 5 this Saturday, offering a special all-request second set. And the Kids will open.
