Dave Grohl & Greg Kurstin’s 2022 ‘Hanukkah Sessions’: Night One Video ft. Judd Apatow
Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin have been releasing their holiday collaboration “The Hanukkah Sessions” for the third year in a row. For 2022, the Foo Fighters frontman and popular producer took “The Hanukkah Sessions” to an intimate club earlier this month for a secret show. With the first night of Hanukkah taking place last night (December 18), the video from the show has finally been released.
Embedded below are Grohl and Kurstin joined by Judd Apatow who provided vocals on a Blood, Sweat & Tears cover of “Spinning Wheel.” Before performing the cover, Apatow addressed the audience saying, “This is a song that means a lot to me. It was performed by the great Hank Kingsley on ‘The Larry Sanders Show.’ This is a tribute to Garry [Shandling] and Hank.”
As previously reported, the 2022 installment of “The Hanukkah Sessions” was the first time they were performed in front of a live audience. The show took place at Largo in Los Angeles, which has a capacity of about 250 people. Due to the pandemic, the previous two years were all virtual performances shared via YouTube. In those two previous years, Grohl and Kurstin have taken on some notable tracks from a diverse slate of Jewish artists. Among them were the Beastie Boys, Lisa Loeb, Bob Dylan, the Velvet Underground, Barry Manilow, the Ramones and more.
