Album Complete! Official Release Party Aug 3rd, 2014

Hi Folks,

We are pleased to announce the release of our new album, Lecha Dodi: For You, My Beloved.

It is the culmination of two years of studio work and features many great musicians. While our first release explored the breadth of the Jewish world and experimented with fusing klezmer melodies with rhythms such as samba, salsa, reggae, and more, this album is a return to our roots.

It is an acoustic album that features songs for shabbat and the chatunah (wedding). It includes original material, some new arrangements of traditional tunes, and two medleys for Jewish dancing. It is available through most digital avenues (itunes, amazon etc) as well as through cd baby or through us. You can purchase it here.

We will be celebrating the release this Sunday, Aug 3rd at Mathews Beach in Northeast Seattle, from 11-2pm. It will be an informal picnic/ beach party. We will play some acoustic music and enjoy a nice summer day with our community. It is free and family friendly. We hope you can make it!

If not, you can catch us at Seward Park at noon on Aug 31st at the SPARK festival with the Moshav Band and Nissim.

It has a mix of shabbes and wedding music as well as some original folk music and a couple klezmer tunes. We are very excited to be featuring some fine guest artists.
