The Moshe Skier Band
A power rock trio performing original Jewish music in a classic rock style. In addition to their searing original songs, the trio covers well known traditional melodies with spare, bluesy arrangements. The rock trio's razor- sharp edge emanates from guitarist Mendy Appel's blistering technique, hailed by Yossi Piamenta as "Amazing!" The band is led by bassist Moshe Skier, formerly of Shlock Rock and Kabbalah and rounding out the outfit is Dan Lawitt's precise percussion. The Moshe Skier Band will rip through your notions of Jewish music and rock you until you can't tell the difference between Mordechai and Haman.

The Ari Ben Moses Band
Reggae bass lines, Latin beats, Middle Eastern and traditional Jewish scales are punctuated by gritty funk grooves influenced by Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel and Ishmael Isaacs.
