Zion 80

Wednesday September 18th

Doors at 7pm Show at 7:30pm
Tickets: $10, available for purchase online at shalomct.org/zion80


Description: Zion80 explores Jewish music through the lens of the Afrobeat funk master Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Led by Jon Madof (Rashanim, Matisyahu), the 10-piece band arranges Jewish melodies using the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat, blended with the madness of the Downtown scene. Madof’s most ambitious project to date, Zion80 is blazing hot and tight as a drum. Spiritual, grooving and endlessly exciting, this is essential Jewish music for the 21st century. The NY Times called Zion 80 “A truly soulful experience.” This event serves as the kickoff to the Federation for Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County’s Judaism: A 2020 Vision series.


Visit shalomct.org/zion80 for a list of Black Rock restaurants offering a 15% discount on food and drink for those attending the Zion 80 concert who show their tickets prior to the concert.

With roots soaking up the Kool Aid left behind by past generations of Psych Rock, the band mixes the electrifying sonic soundscapes of Acid California Rock with the mellow side of Ambient Indie Folk.

Alex Jordan Band

Alex is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who has been surrounded by music his whole life. Owing his immersion to his father, who taught music for forty-one years at Serra High School in San Mateo, Alex started singing at a young age and dabbled with brass instruments (playing primarily Jazz trombone), harmonica, ukulele, bass and piano before eventually discovering the electric guitar at age 17. Songwriting and playing with a few bands throughout high school and college, he kept up his guitar practice while studying classical voice and music education at The Bob Cole Conservatory, California State University, Long Beach before joining the road crew for Cubensis - The Grateful Dead Music Experience upon graduating in 2012. Alex began to regularly sub in with the band on rhythm guitar and vocals in the spring of 2013 when he met Grahame Lesh and Friends (the nascent Midnight North) for whom he eventually auditioned and joined that December. Since 2014, Alex has been touring regularly with Midnight North, adding the piano and Hammond B3 to his arsenal, playing with Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Peter Rowan, and many others. In the fall of 2017, he began working on his debut solo record "The Subtle Exhibitionist" which is set to be released in late summer, 2019.

She grew up with a love of music, singing her favorite tunes on her home karaoke machine and singing in various choirs. The love didn't stop there. Stephanie has been writing songs since she was 14. When she was 16 she auditioned for American Idol and continued auditioning for others shows like Nashville Star and The Voice.

Stephanie has since performed at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City alongside Alexis Babini and most recently performed as a back up singer for solo artist, Eliot Lewis, of the legendary pop duo Hall & Oates.

$15 advance ticket/ $18 ticket day of show

TICKETS

This is the music of Toubab Krewe, the vibrant Asheville, NC-based instrumental powerhouse that creates a sonic Pangaea that lustily swirls together rock, African traditions, jam sensibilities, international folk strains and more. While nearly impossible to put into any box, it takes only a few moments to realize in a very palpable way that one is face-to-face with a true original who recognizes no borders in a march towards a muscular, original, globally switched-on sound.

Jonathan Scales is one of the most innovative steel pannists on the planet, and is redefining and challenging traditional expectations of his signature instrument. In his hands, the sonic palette of an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical resorts is radically expanded to mimic the role of horns, piano, vibraphone or marimba due to his stunning, virtuosic technique. Scales’ mesmerizing compositions have captivated listeners and elevated him to the status of a true composer, forging new territory in the medium of instrumental music.

With infectious grooves, deep improvisational moments, and awe-inspiring live shows, No Mind is quickly becoming one of Connecticut’s premiere bands. The southern-CT based quintet has an ever-growing dedicated fan base that readily follows the band across the New England region. Drawing from a range of influences, No Mind’s shows are never the same twice — filled with rich exploratory jams, tight vocal harmonies, clever songwriting, meaningful lyrics, and masterful musicianship. No Mind has shared the stage with numerous highly-acclaimed artists such as Grammy-winning guitarist and producer Rick Derringer, Hayley Jane and the Primates, West End Blend, Bella’s Bartok, Strange Machines as well as other countless regional and national acts. As the band’s reach continues to grow, fans can catch No Mind at venues such as Mohegan Sun Casino, Toad’s Place, The Acoustic, and various festivals throughout the year.

Big Sexy and The Scrambled Eggs

---------------------------------

Big Sexy and the Scrambled Eggs have been lighting up Central New York stages and honing their unique Funkadelic Blues sound. Although they lurk around the jam band scene due to their ability to improvise, don't make the mistake of assuming their genre. Big Sexy and the Scrambled Eggs play music that transcends. Their songs have heartfelt lyrics and purposeful jams. They can take you places. They can take you to space or they can take you to the campfire. They can take you to the common man's soapbox or the drunken man's front stoop. Their grooves are smooth and their blues are deep rooted. One place Big Sexy and the Scrambled Eggs will surely take you is to the dance floor!

to commemorate, i’m doing a limited tour of listening rooms, taming these electronic & urban sounds into radically intimate, acoustic reinterpretations. get ready to hear stockholm syndrome like you’ve never heard it before.

Conscious, soulful, uplifting, even healing—that’s how many fans of Root Shock have describedthe band’s infectious sound and energy. With a reputation like that, it’s unsurprising that thisgroup is indebted to reggae, a class of music forever married tolove, humanity, social change,and an almost tangible sense of sunlight. But Root Shock didn’t form on a beach. Instead, theycame up in snowy Syracuse, New York in 2012, and since then, they’ve developed a voice thattranscends genre.Spearheaded by theacrobatic, powerhouse vocals of Jessica Brown, the Root Shock sound isat once commanding and cathartic, but never at the expense of a velvety, carefully placed jazzor neo-soul lick. When he isn’t complementing Brown’s pipes with his own earthy vocal turns,Phil Grajko gets weird on the guitar, seamlessly moving from chop chords to girthy riffs andspellbinding solos colored by Latin, prog, and psychedelic rock textures—often in tandem withmad keyboard genius Brian Lauri. Rounding out the band, bassist Bill Eppel and drummer TyreOuterbridge make for a formidable rhythm section fluent in patterns ranging from dancehall toska to heavy dub style and funk

The Grass Is Dead are a force of nature in bluegrass and Grateful Dead music. More than merely paying tribute to the Dead, these hot pickers have been seamlessly weaving bluegrass, blues, rock and funk into a unique sonic experience. Pulling from such diverse influences as Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, John Hartford, Allman Brothers Band, Pink Floyd and so many others, The Grass Is Dead have created a sound that not only pays homage to roots music and the songs of the Dead and Jerry Garcia, but expertly travels through time and space to explore the galactic and psychedelic nature of music itself
