      Upcoming Concerts with cool Jewish musicians worldwide

      This Tuesday night, February 17th in Jerusalem...

      RebbeSoul plays with haMakor
      15 Rechov Shamai, Jerusalem
      (in the center of the city)

      8:45pm - 11:45pm

      Starting off the show is Oneg Shemesh.


      AMERICANS, Take heart...
      RebbeSoul has been invited to play in the US in early April. We're working on adding other venues to complete the tour.



      By far the most ambitious concert series we have ever conceived.

      Debut bands this year include Jewdysee all the way from Germany, and Israeli grassroots sensation Aharit Hayamim. Aharit Hayamim blend the many cultural influences of Israel into one jamming sound. Jewdysee is one of the most exciting acts in all of Europe. Last year Moshav brought down the roof - so we brought them back, as well as internationally acclaimed hip-hop rapper Y-Love.

      Additional stars of this year's line-up include, Blue Fringe founder, Dov Rosenblatt, Shempseed creator Erez Safar, aka Diwon and Nosson Zand, who recently toured with Matisyahu. We'll dance into the night with DJ Eric Rosen & The Twelve Tribes.

      Also enjoy the amazing and intense music of these fine performers- Adam Weinberg, J. Kleinberg, Inbar Bakal, David Finlay Quartet, Kosha Dillz, and a surprise guest or two. We are thrilled to announce that the Concert Series will be musically MC'd by Jewlicious fan favorite Rav Shmuel, back by popular demand.


      Jewlicious Festival is a three-day gathering of Jewish students & young adults, held at the massive 85,000 sq. ft. Alpert JCC in Long Beach. The Festival features leading Jewish personalities, musicians, artists, and writers from around the world for a world-class concert series, inspiring Shabbat experiences, discussions and workshops. Jewlicious has been described as an event unlike any other weekend in Jewish history. Jewlicious unites trend-setters, artists and spirit seekers; Ashkenazim, Sefardim, Persians and Mizrachim; atheists, agnostics, skeptics and believers; designers, activists, jocks, and hipsters. Sound impossible?

      Don't worry, we have done this before.


      Join us this Sunday night to see two of the greatest Jewish performers EVER: C Lanzbom and Noah Solomon (from Soulfarm). This is going to be a relaxed, spiritual show, and since Monday is President's Day they might play a little late. Tickets are only $16 and $12 for students with ID. Doors open at 7:45 pm.
      We hope to see you there!

      Soulfarm, which includes musicians C Lanzbom and Noah Solomon, has earned both critical and popular acclaim.

      They have shared the stage with musicians such as Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Perry Farrell, and Dispatch.

      Soulfarm has emerged, with a unique blend of rock, pop, folk, and country, with sweet-as-honey melodies, soulful harmonies, and Lanzbom's captivating guitar leads.
