We just got back from the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival and now the guitar and I are turning around and headed back on the road. This time, I’m putting my boots up in Austin at SXSW for a few days of great music with great people!
To kick it off, I’ll be playing a showcase at Genuine Joe’s Coffeehouse starting at 1pm called “Soul Spark”. This is two full sets of Jewish Singer/Songwriters and includes some incredible talent as well up and coming artists. The whole show was put together by the incredible Mikey Pauker and features Sammy Rosenbaum, Eric Hunker, Happie Hoffman, Maya Abramson, Kosha Dillz, Robbi Sherwin of Sababa, and myself. We had such an amazing time last year and this year is looking even better! If you’re at the festival, take a break from the bananas and come rest your feet at Genuine Joe’s.
Next up is SXShabbat on Friday at the Love Goat! This place is 21+ only – FYI. It’ll be a full day of music from some incredible folks and we’ll gather upstairs afterwards for a wild Shabbat service led by Mikey Pauker and Kosha Dillz. Afterwards, myself and a few others will be making sweet music on the roof to keep the celebration going. I’m also happy to announce that James Dutremaine will be joining me on guitar! Check out the posters below for more information and if you’re there – stop by, swing in, pull up a chair, and shake some dust!
As for the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival? It was AMAZING! Russell Gottschalk and the entire festival team have really built something incredible and it continues to grow every year! I’ll do a full write up on it soon but for now – check out this video from the Atlanta Jewish Times and a few pictures from the concert on Saturday.
Acoustic Shabbat is back at Congregation Shaar Hashalom!
If you happen to be in Houston and are looking to kick back a little on March 25th, come on out to Acoustic Shabbat at Congregation Shaar Hashalom. I’ll be leading services with Rabbi Stuart Federow and everyone is invited. All week long, we gather dust and get caught up in the details of the day to day. Join us on the 25th and shake off the week with song, prayer, and community. It’s a service to sooth the soul. The singin’ starts at 7:30pm. Come as you are.
And finally – a little piece of wisdom before hitting the road.
“If you believe breaking is possible, believe fixing is possible.”
– Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
