Nick Garcia talks to singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer John Maxfield
about coming back from an early nearly fatal injury to becoming a full-time musician, and how he used a video to reach a wider audience and parlay that into expanding his music career. He'll play a few new tunes from his forthcoming album.

Brothers Lazaroff's 3rd Annual Hanukkah Hullabaloo
Brothers Jeff and David Lazaroff aren't afraid explore new ground. Their band, Brothers Lazaroff, started out in an Americana/roots vein, but over time expanded their sound to include elements of house music, hip-hop and noise while maintaining a consistent songwriting style. Since 2011, the brothers, along with a group of family, friends, bandmates and fellow musicians, have put on an annual Hanukkah Hullabaloo. This year, they continue that tradition on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at Plush on Locust. St. Louis Public Radio's Mike Schrand sat down and talked to them about the event. More information about the Hanukkah Hullabaloo here.
