Canada’s rockin’ Rabbi, author, musician, and founder of Kiddush Club Gary Zweig has just the soundtrack for getting families active this summer: the release of his new song, “Exercise” — available now.
Channelling everyone from the world’s greatest athletes to the beginner at-home fitness enthusiast, Zweig says he set out to create an exciting song to exercise alongside with.
“It’s fun, it’s funky, and it’s got a bit of rock and roll,” the Toronto-based multi-talented singer/songwriter enthuses. “I’m young at heart, so I wrote this song for kids of all ages — from 1 to 101 years old!”
Heard on Kiddush Club’s third album release, Toys, the nine-track LP joins Kiddush Club’s other releases — their eponymous LP, Kiddush Club, and The Wine Album.
First formed in 1988, Zweig initially started Kiddush Club to create parody songs with a decidedly rock n’ roll twist. Featured across CBC, AM740, the Toronto Star, Chatelaine, CITYTV’s Breakfast Television, and more, Zweig most recently penned Toys for his son as a response to a family favourite movie, Toy Story. “I wanted to use themes kids could relate to,” he explains. “The album covers things like sleep, toys, and of course, ‘Exercise.’
“It’s been a hit everywhere we’ve played.”
For Zweig, who started playing the guitar at age 10, that includes Canada, Sweden, Barbados, Mexico, the U.S., and more.
Toys and “Exercise” are available now!
