The Mickey Katz Project now has a home of it’s own!
The Mickey Katz Project will examine Mickey’s music, wit & wisdom and the musical gifts he left for generations to enjoy.
The father of living Broadway legend, Joel Grey and grandfather to Dancing With The Stars’ champion, Jennifer Grey, Mickey Katz recorded Yiddish parodies of pop songs from the 1940’s to the late 60’s for both RCA Victor and Capitol Records. He was considered to be the Jewish “Weird Al” of his day. His musicianship was superb, and his comic timing, “poifect”!
Even though the popularity of ethnic humor has mostly faded away over the years due to society’s push towards political correctness, Mickey’s wit & musicianship continue to win over the hearts of music lovers world-wide more than 50 years later.
