YBC LIVE! PESACH ’11 Ah Ah Ah!

YBC LIVE! PESACH ’11 Ah Ah Ah!

Last night I had the privilege of going to YBC LIVE! PESACH ’11 Ah Ah Ah! In other words, the latest Yeshiva Boys Choir concert. I’m going to be honest. I was very excited, and I expected it to be cute– which it totally was, but it was also much more than that. Let me [&hellip

Just a Fan’s Review of Six13: Zmanim

Just a Fan’s Review of Six13: Zmanim

I first heard Six13 a few years ago, right before they came to my college for a performance. Right away I liked their music, and for two sefiras and three weeks I played them pretty constantly being one of those people that needs to have my iPod on when I walk to the dryer to [&hellip

Review: Yaakov Shwekey Live in Caesaria II

YAAKOV SHWEKEY: LIVE IN CAESARIA II We should all be grateful that Shwekey went to Caesaria because, if nothing else, we got this amazing album out of it. It’s sort of like a greatest hits CD. You’ll hear a lot of songs from Ad Bli Dai, a few from Leshem Shomayim, and a handful of [&hellip
