  Last night I saw Simply Tsfat......

Last night the band Simply Tsfat was here to do a benefit for Sharei Bina, a seminary in Tsfat. I don't think Sharei Bina benefited to much from the show though considering there where only about 75 people there from what I could tell. The admission was $18 so that's only about $1300.

Simply Tsfat are 3 extremely talented musicians who are also Breslov Chassidim, you know...those N NA NACH NACHMAN guys who you see dancing motsei Shabbat in Kikar Tzion and are always so freekin happy. They are Eliyahu the band leader who plays acoustic guitar and is the primary vocalist, Yonaton the insanely talented flamenco guitarist and only Israeli born member of the trio, and Yehonaton the violinist. Last night they had a fourth member, the greatest Jewish rock drummer that I've ever seen Even Sh'Siyah's own Matt Kanter.

The crowd was so freekin pathetic I felt bad for them. Out of the 50 or so men (there was physical separation between the men and woman) that I saw, 45 of them looked liked they died in there seats. At one point the band broke out into an Adar jam and Yonaton jumped off the stage and physically dragged every single sad man out of their chairs to the dance floor. It was beautiful.

The band played a bunch of there newer stuff including quite a few songs off of their Be Happy album. They played many instrumentals which was just fine with me because there vocals are not the greatest although their voices are more enjoyable in a live setting. Matt was incredible and you could just tell that these guys loved playing with him. They are so much fun to watch because they are genuinely happy people. They are the nicest guys and I can't wait for the opportunity to see them in their hometown...the holy city of Tsfat.

I have no inside knowledge, but there is something that stands out to me.

Simply Tsfat performed at KINS in Chicago twice before. Both times were with Kfar. Both times, the place was packed.

This time it appears they performed completely without involving Kfar. Too bad for everybody.

That stood out to me as well...The Sharei Bina people did horrible promotion for the event. Let's face it, if your doing a Jewsih concert in Chicago you need Kfar's help. We have a tough city for drawing crowds.

you guys are sweet for saying so thanks for the props. they came to me after the show was booked and asked for help, but in the end, they wanted the shaare bina show to be stand alone...

I would have gone to see the guys but i've been overwhelmed by that nasty bug going around. I"m a week into it and I"m only now able to stand up without getting dizzy.

When do we get Moshav in town? How about Matis?
