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.
