CONCERTS & MUSIC EVENTS
Jewish Pop Rocks! A Tribute Concert in Celebration of Chanukah
After Elvis joined the army, and before the British Invasion, there emerged a period of quintessential American pop music, when teen idols and girl group hits dominated the airwaves. Memorable hit tunes with a style both innocent and sophisticated were born out of New York's Brill Building— penned and produced by emerging Jewish musicians who would rise to great fame: Leiber and Stoller, Carole King, Neil Sedaka, Burt Bacharach, Ellie Greenwich, Cynthia Weil…and many more. Enjoy classic hits such as On Broadway, Natural Woman, Walk On By, One Fine Day, and more—and dance the afternoon away! Refreshments will be served. Featuring The Jordan Klapman Quintet: Shelley Hamilton and TBA Gavin Hope (vocals), Ron Johnston (bass), John Collin (drums) and Jordan Klapman (keyboard)
