I saw Matisyahu years ago at the Long Beach Reggae Festival. He absolutely blew me away. Here was this Hasidic Jew singing rap-reggae, fusing traditional Jamaican music with rock, hip-hop and dub, in addition to singing freely about his faith and spirtuality.

Since then, Matisyahu has gone through a change. He no longer has dreads or a beard, but one thing he definitely still has is his enormous talent. This dynamic performer has formed a band that truly gives itself over to the music, allowing Matisyahu to do his favorite thing, improvise. Which means no two performances of a song are alike, and lyrics are rearranged on the spot making each concert feel like one big ‘jam’ with Matisyahu’s beat boxing propelling the music beyond anything it’s achieved previously.

The band features original Stubbs guitarist and longtime staple of the downtown New York improv scene, Aaron Dugan, Dub Trio bassist and long-time Matisyahu collaborator, Stu Brooks, percussionist and Cyro Baptista go-to drummer Tim Keiper, and Addison Groove Project founder, Rob Marscher.

This is one concert you do not want to miss, and you won’t have to.  The Broken Crowns Tour featuring Matisyahu, Common Kings, Orphan and rapper Zion 1 will be at the historic Wiltern Theatre located at 3790 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles on November 13, 2017. Purchase tickets here or call 213-388-1400. Ticket prices start at $20.00. This promises to be one night of music you won’t forget for a very long time.

Well one day, she met someone at a party who regaled her with stories about living in L. A. specifically Topanga Canyon. A few weeks later she found herself on an airplane bound for Los Angeles. Joan immediately fell in love with the town and has been living here for the last twenty years and yes, she even made it to Topanga Canyon, where she now resides, surrounded by nature, deer, owls and all kinds of extraordinary alien creatures.. Joan continued acting, but for the last several years (besides reviewing plays and film) she has been writing screenplays. Joan was married to a filmmaker who created the cult classic films, (way before she knew him) Faces of Death.
