Alternative Indie rock concert at The Barnacle
Because this is Alternative/Indie rock, the artists have widely differing styles, so there is likely to be something that will become a new favorite for everyone. Alternative and independent music is a good antidote to the mass-produced mainstream and, in the case of Avenue J, very much in keeping with the Chabad mission of promoting the enrichment of life through celebrations of Jewish culture.
Rosh Lowe from Channel 7 will be the emcee of the festival.
“Having these new artists bring their music to Coconut Grove, we feel, at Chabad, is a great way to reach people who might not ordinarily go to a Jewish or Chabad event,” Rabbi Getzy Fellig said. “Some of the music is more specifically Jewish, whether in style or in lyrics, some of it less so, but at all times we have something different going on, something that nurtures the individual soul.”
The concert’s headliners, “The Breslov Brothers," Ari and Gil Gat are brothers who perform classic rock standards while looking like the wedding band in “Fiddler on the Roof." Their recent success on “Rising Star," the Israeli answer to “American Idol," is proof that the mainstream world loves their take on rock standards such as “Hotel California” and “The Sound of Silence."
Other artists hail from different parts of the U.S. Distant Cousins is a multi-layered collaboration of three musicians from Los Angeles; Levi Robin currently touring and opening for Matisyahu, comes from Brooklyn, and Aaron Holder is a local from Miami Beach.
