For the 10th year, The Friday Night Jam & FANS.live announce a series of spiritually and musically inclined High Holidays services. All four of the services will be broadcasted live for free via Fans.live and will be led by Rabbi Daniel Brenner and musical director Jeremiah Lockwood, featuring Antibalas' Jordan McLean, Yuli Beeri, and a full live band. The live-streamed shows will take place at Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Bowl (where there will be a select number of tickets for sale) and Relix Studios.
MON, SEP 6 @ 7:30 PM EST from Brooklyn Bowl
TUE, SEP 7 @ 10 AM EST from Brooklyn Bowl
WED, SEP 15 @ 7PM EST from The Relix Studio
(stream live via Fans.live)
THU, SEP 16 @ 10AM EST from The Relix Studio
(stream live via Fans.live)
The services will feature a mix of live music and remote video contributions from a mix of musicians. Confirmed remote guests contributing to the streams include Alex Bleeker (Real Estate), Eric Slick (Dr. Dog), Dan Lebowitz (ALO), and Eric Krasno (Soulive and Lettuce). The house band consists of Jeremiah Lockwood, Antibalas' Jordan McLean, Antibalas’ Timothy Allen, Antibalas’ Jake Pinto, drummer John Bollinger, Antibalas/Arcade Fire's Stuart Bogie, and Yula Berri on vocals and bass. CEO of Mindfulness Consulting, Yael Shy, will be leading guided meditations at each event streamed from the Brooklyn Bowl, while Jewish mindfulness teacher Michael Bilick will lead meditations at the events streamed from the Relix Studios.
"We have said for years that Brooklyn Bowl is our sanctuary, clubhouse, church and synagogue, so it only makes sense that it has grown into the spiritual home for our musically inclined Rosh Hashanah services over the years,” says Relix’s Editor-in-Chief Mike Greenhaus. “Especially at a time when so many of us have been apart from our friends and family due to the pandemic, we hope that our suite of traditional-but-open-minded-and-inclusive services will allow us to connect with each other as we 'begin again' at the start of this new year.”
ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL (WILLIAMSBURG):
Brooklyn Bowl was founded in 2009 by music entrepreneurs and co-owners Peter Shapiro and Charley Ryan, who previously partnered at Manhattan’s famed club Wetlands Preserve. Wearing its homegrown values on its sleeve, Brooklyn Bowl is as committed to locally made products — serving award-winning beer from the adjacent Brooklyn Brewery — as it is to environmental sustainability; it's the first LEED-certified bowling alley in the world (and serves only paper straws). And the food? "Epic," says Eater. In other words, Brooklyn Bowl's unprecedented combination of top-flight music, bowling, beer, and food is "like nailing a spare on a four-ten split" (The New Yorker). Additional Brooklyn Bowl venues are located in Las Vegas and most recently, Nashville.
