New York, NY-Tzadik Records artists Rashanim will perform at Tonic on Thursday, July 22 at 8pm. Located in the heart of New York's Lower East Side, Tonic is the spot in NYC for avant-garde, creative and experimental music. The club regularly features performances by Tzadik executive producer John Zorn as well as Marc Ribot, Elliot Sharp, Medeski, Martin, and Wood, and others.

The dynamic guitar trio Rashanim merges the power of rock with electrifying improvisation and beautiful Jewish melodies, leading the The Village Voice to call them "one of the best things to happen to [Jewish music] since Andy Statman or the Klezmatics." Rashanim's debut CD was released in 2003 on John Zorn's Tzadik Records. Rashanim is lead by guitarist Jon Madof and includes Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (Satlah, Lemon Juice Quartet, Anthony Braxton) on electric bass and Mathias Kunzli (Randy Brecker, George Garzone, Mecca Bodega) on drums and percussion.
