  • One Israeli Creation for the Weekend

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    October 12, 2012 | 11:19 am

    Mashina is The Rolling Stones of Israel. They are considered Israel's most influential rock band, as they stand behind many of the music milestones in Israel. They have taken over the playlists in 1983, and have been making hits ever since (except of a break they took from 1995 to...

  • Red Hot Chili Peppers to perform in Israel after ten year rain check

    By Hollywood Jew

    December 5, 2011 | 3:17 pm

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers have finally rescheduled their Tel Aviv concert after cancelling a show in 2001, citing fears for their safety. The original show was for their “Californication” tour and 20,000 tickets were sold for a concert in Tel Aviv’s Havarkon Park, according to...

  • From Jewish roots, band sprouts afro/new wave wings

    By Ryan Torok

    September 14, 2011 | 11:13 am

    Luke Top and Lewis Pesacov of Fool’s Gold are surprised they don’t have a larger Jewish fan base. Most of the songs on the band’s 2009 self-titled debut are in Hebrew, vocalist Top was born in Israel, and earlier this year the band played Jewlicious, a music festival for Jewish...

  • KISS reunion tour in Haifa: Gene Simmons goes home

    September 12, 2011 | 11:22 am

    The most well-circulated piece of trivia about Gene Simmons, former member of the band KISS, is that he was born in Haifa, Israel. For years Simmons’ birthplace and Israeli heritage were rumored to be true, but in the Digital Age it would be confirmed with Wikipedia and video...

  • Gene Simmons Talks “Family Jewels” and Why Blood is Thicker Than Hummus [UPDATE]

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 28, 2011 | 12:05 am

    In the June 28 episode of A & E’s reality series, “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” flamboyant KISS frontman Simmons – famed for his demonic makeup, fire-breathing, tongue-flicking, 10-inch platforms and female conquests – cries at his father’s grave in Israel.

    It was the...

  • We got Apples and Oranges and Pears, Oh My!

    By Julia Bendis

    April 28, 2011 | 3:33 pm

    Watching Chelsea Handler the other night made me think of all the idiotic names parents give their children these days.  You might have guessed by that intro that she had none other than Gwyneth Paltrow as a guest on her show.  As Chelsea asked about her daughter Apple, I couldn’t...

  • Men who rock Israel’s history appear locally

    By Amy Klein

    March 1, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Can the history of a nation be told through its music? If that nation has only been around for about 60 years, it's conceivable.

    This month it's possible to follow Israel's history -- or at least the zeitgeist of its people -- in Los Angeles through three very different sounds of...

  • Good albums drown out naysayers’ dire predictions

    By George Robinson

    December 28, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    All in all, 2006 was a very good year for Jewish music. Fourteen CDs won the five-star plaudit, which is certainly a hopeful sign and a pointed rejoinder to those naysayers who have been proclaiming the death of (choose one): 1) klezmer; 2) new Jewish music; 3) old Jewish music....
  • Susanna Hoffs walks like a -- rockstar no, a mom -- rockstar/mom

    By Tom Teicholz

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Hannah Montana," a Disney Channel program I watch on occasion with my daughter, features a 14-year-old girl with a secret identity: she's actually a rock star. This is an absurd fantasy.

    In real life, the rock star at my daughter's school is a mom. Although she leads a double...

  • Thirty Years of Carlebach Rock

    By George Robinson

    August 17, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's musical legacy has taken many forms, from the dozens of minyanim whose worship uses his music to the excellent recordings made by his daughter, Neshama. But the most enduring and unexpected offspring from Carlebach's folkie neo-Chasidism is the number of jam...

  • The O-Zo-Surprising Ozomatli

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 30, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    "Wil-Dog Abers is Jewish?" The question comes up often for the co-founder of the sociopolitical salsa-pop-reggae-hip-hop band Ozomatli, which has won two Grammys for best alternative Latin rock. Hispanic fans address the bassist as ese, the Spanish slang for homeboy, and are shocked...

  • Spend Chanukah Barenaked

    By Keren Engelberg

    December 2, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    While naming your holiday album "Barenaked for the Holidays" is a pretty catchy way to get some attention, for the quirky pop band that calls itself the Barenaked Ladies, it made sense -- about as much sense as getting naked on "The Sharon Osbourne Show" last year, anyway....

  • What’s in a Name?

    By Michael Aushenker

    August 15, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Eric, Matt and Chris are three musicians who refuse to give away their last names. But if you guessed it was out of a lack of ethnic pride, you'd be wrong.

    "I'm a pretty high-profile Jew, whether I like it or not," says singer-songwriter Eric. "It's hard to hide when you're in a...

  • 7 Days in the Arts

    By Keren Engelberg

    May 23, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    25/SATURDAY

    The band is called JEW and blatant Jew pride is reason enough for a shout-out. But these guys also have a show tonight. Their sound is best described as alt-rock, and they name the Police and Nirvana as strong influences. Support the tribe and check out their show, at...

  • Strike Up the Klezmer

    By Beverly Gray

    November 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    This is not your grandmother's halftime show. Unless of course, Grandma grew up in a kibbutz or shtetl with a 145-piece marching band in residence.

    Santa Monica High School's Viking Marching Band and Color Guard performs at halftime during the school football team's home games. Band...

  • Classical Klezmer

    By Mike Levy

    November 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    What do you do when your symphony season hinges on a theme of celebration, but your country is still reeling from terrorism? When your opening concert features a piece called "Suite for Klezmer Band and Orchestra," and the klezmer band cancels?

    If you are Noreen Green, artistic...

  • Marching to a Different Drum

    By Michael Aushenker

    March 30, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Building an audience has become something of a lifestyle for the group Guster. Formed at Tufts University, the band Guster consists of three Jewish boys -- Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner on guitars and vocals; Brian Rosenworcel on percussion -- who graduated from the Boston-area...

    There's a new singing cowboy in town, and his name is Ken Kunin.

    "I've been in this crazy industry for about 10 years," says the lead vocalist/songwriter. And he's about to turn up the heat.

  • Taste of KlezMex

    By Carvin Knowles

    July 15, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    In spite of thunder, lightning, pouring rain and occasional gusts of unchecked sentimentalism, the Viva Klezmer-L'Khayim Mariachi concert at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on Sunday, July 11, was a high-energy, crowd-pleaser that mostly delivered on its promise to explore the...

  • The Return of Poogy

    May 13, 1999 | 7:59 pm

    The fabled Poogy, Israel's most celebrated rock band, is reuniting in the United States next month for a three-city tour, billed as their "final reunion." It's worth watching the reviews to see how they're received. The results will offer data on the state of Jewish identity and...

    May 22, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    The Jerusalem Jazz Band
    At the Dixieland Jubilee in Sacramento, the annual super bowl of jazz, the band that got the most ecstatic reception a couple of years ago was cradled a few thousand miles east of New Orleans.
