"Di Shikerer Tantz" ("Drunkard Dance") is a melodic line we've been playing in the Panorama Brass Band for several years. It works great out on the parade route, especially the night parades. From there we brought it into the Jazz Band and even had a round of shnapps brought to the bandstand by an appreciative festival goer when we played it at the French Quarter Festival a few years ago.

This particular tune is different every time we play it. On the June 2nd recording session, we tracked it in one take and all immediately felt that we had a hit on our hands.

Much gratitude to Mark Rubin for assistance with the Yiddish title.
