Poogy in Jerusalem. Kaveret Reunion Draws Thousands


Israeli band Kaveret played two extremely well-received shows in Jerusalem at the Sultan's Pool. Media reports indicate over 8,000 people attended the Thursday night performance and even more at a Saturday night performance. This is the first time the musical act has performed in almost 15 years.

The band performed despite a leg injury suffered by vocalist and keyboard player Yoni Rechter during rehearsals. There was concern that the concert would have to be cancelled, but the starting time was merely delayed to allow Rechter to perform after he was treated at Sha'arei Tzedek Hospital.

Kaveret began in 1973 and released three hit albums: Poogy Tales, Poogy in a Pita, and Crowded in the Ear.
