Exclusive Interview With Shir Chodosh Orchestra – With Live Studio Performance

hudi greenberger at studioEXCLUSIVE: TLS sat down this week with Hudi Greenberger of Shir Chodosh Orchestras to learn about his unique ‘Guitar Man Band’, which Hudi says is a new, refreshing twist on an old classic, ‘One Man Band’. Since it’s inception approximately 2 1/2 years ago, Hudi has performed at
hundreds of events, including Chasunas, Bar Mitzvahs, Yeshiva, Shul Mesibos, Sheva Brochos and Kumzitzes.

While a seasoned musician and computer tech at TechMaster PC’s is his profession, Hudi keeps a solid 1st Seder at Yeshivah each day, and for those that know him – and those that don’t yet – he is one of the smiliest, nicest guys around.

“I’m fortunate to make a Parnassah doing what I love”, Hudi says, “which is by spreading Simcha with my music”.

Hudi also donates some of his time in and around Lakewood and beyond, using his beautiful voice and guitar skills to bring happiness to the sick and elderly.

See the video for the full interview, which includes a live studio performance.

And if you’re going to be at the Simcha Expo at Lake Terrace this Motzei Shabbos, make sure to stop by his booth to meet him in person!

  1. Go Hudi!
    He played my brothers wedding, and many more I have been by…
    In addition to superb ( literally, SUPERB) music and sound, you will get the pleasure of dealing with a class A mentch!!!

  2. My question is…how would it sound without his guitar playing..and how would it sound if he played the recording with his guitar included and just hire an amateur to strum a guitar while we all listen to pre-recorded music?

  3. Fabulous playing at a bar-mitzva. Also great guitar teacher. My son plays well thanks to Hudi. Good shtick would be if he would prop a manequin sitting at the keyboards ! Then all the grandmas and ornry geezers would yell at the dummy to lower the music and Hudi can nod along in agreement !!

  4. I have used Hudi for many simchos he is great easy to work with adapted to many situations from bar mitzvah, sheva breaches kumzit .
    Hudi we enjoy your music.

  5. Why are the TLS reporters and interviewers always so self conscious? They NEVER show their faces. It makes the whole site seem a little shady and unkosher, don’t be ashamed your site is gr8!

  6. I once heard Hudi with Mordechai Levovitz at a wedding in BY of lakewood. It was something else!

    the played a good porting of the dinner using just 2 guitars and it was so nice. the dancing was also very geshmak.

    I am a big fan of them!

  7. I don’t know you and never had the pleasure of hearing you, but I love how everyone can agree on something. If everyone thinks you are great, there is obviously truth behind it. This should be a lesson for everyone else of there. It pays to be a mentch and treat people nicely. You should enjoy hatzluche beyond your wildest dreams!!!

  8. I know him personnaly and I’ve heard him do his guitar man band thing a few times (by Roberts’ shul on chanuka last year and a wedding a few months ago) and both events were unbelievable – and I’m a musician too! I understand the MIDI tehcnology that goes into making and playing back the tracks…

    to #6 – you obviosly didn’t understand hudi’s explanation too well. 1st off, every time he plays, it sounds diffrent because as he said, he has a few diffrent versions of each song, and he can mix and match and change tracks on the fly with just a few clicks. Plus the addition of a LIVE and very PROFFESIONAL guitarist and a live singer makes the music as close to a full band as you can get with only one man running the controls
