After more than a year off, the Mazal Tones, a Columbus-based musical act, will perform three reunion concerts.
The band, which consists of Barbara Dowell, Ron Cohen, Barry Yaillen and Linda Schottenstein sang together for 16 years, presenting concerts with their two guitars and four voices singing Israeli folk tunes, American show tunes and songs in Hebrew, English and Yiddish.
The first concert will be at 4 p.m. July 23 at Wexner Heritage House, 1151 College Ave. in Columbus, and will feature well-known American songs such as “Heart and Soul,” “Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World.” The following show is at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 7 at Kensington Place, 1001 Parkview Blvd. in Columbus. The third concert will be at 4 p.m. Sept. 18 at Creekside at the Village, 1151 College Ave. in Columbus.
“We all realized about the same time that we really missed performing and singing with our audiences,” Schottenstein said in a news release. “In May, we
gathered and each brought some of our favorites, most of which overlapped, and soon we had a list of delightful songs we wanted to present.”
