42 Songs for Your Hanukkah Music Playlist

Spin the dreidel to these Hanukkah themed hits.

Lauren Miolene


If you thought there was barely any Hanukkah music, you’re mistaken! We put together a playlist for your upcoming Hanukkah celebration so you don’t have to. Thanks to us, you can check the Hanukkah music playlist off the to-do list—check out the Spotify playlist (and YouTube links!) below.

If you would rather have live music for the evening, you can always book a string quartet, klezmer band, violinist, or accordion player to play your favorite Hanukkah music.

Tips for booking a DJ, band or musician:

  • On The Bash, you can search through a list of top-rated, bookable DJs, bands and entertainers in your local area. While browsing, be sure to review vendor profiles and check out their photos and videos.
  • When preparing a request for one of our musicians or DJs, keep in mind that the more details you can provide, the more accurate the price quote you'll receive. If you receive a price quote that seems like it needs clarification, don't hesitate to reach out to the vendor directly to find out more.
  • Make sure you have discussed what supplies the vendor will need for their performance. You'll want to know what they can provide, and what you'll need to have on hand at your event.
  • Communicate your expectations and special requests to any prospective musicians, and make sure to ask about their repertoire — especially if you have a particular Hanukkah song that you would like them to perform.
  • If you're planning an outdoor event, be sure to discuss where the vendor will be situated for the best acoustics and conditions for them to perform.
  • Discuss what kind of atmosphere and mood you are hoping to set for your event. The more they know, the better they'll meet your expectations. 

There are so many benefits to booking through The Bash with Our Guarantee. All deposit and balance payments made online through our secure EventPay system are backed by a 100% money-back guarantee. You’ll also have hands-on support from our Account Services team.
