When the musical band Eighth Day released their first music video called Ya'alili, we featured it and profiled the band. We can't believe that was four years ago!
Since then the Jewish Rock group founded by brothers Shmuel and Bentzi Marcus has released five studio albums and played lots of concerts across the globe. Now they've moved their location from the Pomegranate supermarket in Brooklyn where they filmed Ya'alili to the Herzog Wine Cellars in Oxnard, California, to film their latest hit Hooleh.
The band got their start in Southern California where the Marcus brothers grew up in a very musical ultra-orthodox, chassidic home. What started as a fun family project, has now become a global phenomenon as their fan base continues to grow all over the world. 8th Day's fresh and unique sound is complimented by their catchy lyrics, mostly English with some Hebrew and Yiddish mixed in, along with their spirited vocal harmonies.
