Reva L’sheva was (and is) one of the premier Jewish rock bands, fusing their influences from Reb Shlomo Carlebach and the Grateful Dead into a Jewish Soul Rock experience. Like the Diaspora Yeshiva Band before them, Reva L’Sheva is a pioneering Jewish music experience that shuns the traditional (and lame) vocals-centric, horn-accompanied Yeshiveshe music.
Like many bands, Reva L’sheva has had several lineups, although it always has centered around the band’s lead-vocals, guitarist, and front-man, Yehuda Katz.
Here’s me with the band in 2002 at Newark Airport, awaiting a El-Al flight to take us home in time for Sukkot. That’s Yehuda on my left.
Here’s a photo from their 2003 Sukkot Festival concert at the Bet Shemesh Ampitheater.
