Lazer Lloyd "King of Israeli Blues Rock" Coming to San Francisco!

Gevaldt! Our beloved holy brother Lazer Lloyd Blumen, known and loved universally (Reva l'Sheva, Yood) is coming to spread the holy sparks of Blues Rock to the Bay Area!

Lazer Lloyd will play two shows at Biscuits and Blues in San Francisco on Sunday, November 23rd (7pm and 9pm). At only $20 per ticket, you'll want to see both shows!

Radio Free Nachlaot's JET BLUE BLUES HOUR (Wednesdays 1pm Pacific/4pm Eastern/11pm Israel time, sponsored by JetBlue Airways) will rebroadcast this show on November 26th, but IT'S SO MUCH BETTER TO BE ABLE TO BE THERE IN PERSON! Join RFN's own Lorelai Kude and a bunch of merry Blues revelers at Biscuits and Blues on November 23rd!

Lazer Lloyd, Israel's King of Blues Rock, brings to Biscuits and Blues on Sunday Nov. 23th fresh sound, new songs, and deep roots with all-star backing from Felton Crews and Kenny Coleman, the world famous rhythm section of the Chicago Blues Kings. Lazer is an Israeli singer/songwriter and an international recording artist influenced by blues, gospel, southern rock, and the great guitar traditions of power and groove from Hendrix to Wes Montgomery. His music takes the audience into his world from the tender moments of a traveling musician in "By Your Side", to a man struggling with life "Talk", he opens hearts with "world soul groove" on "Way Down" and "Back Porch" and then rocks with intensity and joy on irresistible tunes like "Good Man Down", "Set My Soul Free", and "Rockin' in the Holy Land".

The Lazer Lloyd Band, which has successfully crossed over into the Israeli mainstream music scene, been featured playing live on Israeli Channel 8 TV’s “Guitar Heroes” hosted by Tal Friedman, Channel 10′s “London and Kirschenbaum”, 88FM with Gedi Livneh, as well as on Yoav Kutner’s Army Radio program. Kutner commented, “From the moment the sounds of his blues guitar reached the air it was completely clear that this is an international-level guitarist. His shows are worth every minute. One of the great musicians.”

Coming to San Francisco fresh from his second tour of Russia, Lazer has opened for such artists as Johnny Winter, Prince, Snowy White, and Olie Brown. Lazer Lloyd's singing and guitar playing has been honed to perfection by his constant touring in Israel and he takes it to the next level with the deep groove and power backing of Chicago stars bass player (Felton Crews) and drummer (Kenny Coleman). They will be playing a riveting set of songs previewing Lazer's upcoming 2015 album of new music and some of his greatest classic tunes.

Washington Post: "One of the most popular blues singers and guitarists in Israel is Lazer Lloyd"

"Lazer Lloyd’s show was intense never taking his foot off the pedal and demonstrating guitar playing reminiscent to the great players of the 60s." - Bruce Maltby, Owner Violet's Venue, Barrie, Ontario.

“This is the best Rock N Roll Blues that I have seen in Israel. Amazing, you have to see him live.” Ben Red, 88FM (Israeli radio)

“Lloyd’s guitar skills are impeccable, along with a rich, vocal delivery. A consummate musician, writer and storyteller.” Nashville Blues Society

“He handles his guitar like it was an extension of his lanky, but sturdy body, and the glorious noise that it emits emerges directly from his soul. He’s the best guitarist in Israel.” Jerusalem Post

Save Steven's Garden!

Lorelai's back with a new episode of "Heart to Heart".

Her interview with Shirel Levine, mother of Steven z"l for which "Steven's Garden" in Tzfat is named, will air on Radio Free Nachlaot Wednesday 6pm Israel time.

It's a short but sweet interview about how losing her son Steven to cancer in 1996 inspired another tzadekis, Tamar Bittleman of blessed memory to launch the project that would become "Steven's Garden".

Shirel has, with the significant help of Wendy Kenin (who produced this segment for Mitzvah Media / RFN) launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to help take care of a special place that has meant so much to so many people over the last 18 years. Now that Tamar is gone and can't keep up the garden herself, it's up to us to lend a hand. 

Please visit the fundraising page at and even the smallest contributions will - like the small seed that began the garden 18 years ago - grow into a beautiful, flourishing "Tree of Life".

If you miss the broadcast, you can listen to the interview with Shirel at:

It's Wednesday, and we've got some changes!

So, it's after the 9 Days of Jerry, and it's time for some changes.
Please take Note:

The Jet Blue Blues Hour will now air at 11:00 PM Wednesday Night (Jerusalem Time). Yes, 2:00 AM in Jerusalem is a bit late for a "live" Blues Hour, and we are all about "live" radio 'round here, so the Jet Blue, Blues Hour will now air at 11:00 PM Jerusalem Time. (4:00 PM East Coast U.S. time, and 1:00 PM West Coast U.S. time)
What, you say that's too early for you to have the Blues or to take a Blues Getaway?
Well, we'll replay the Blues Hour Sunday at 2:00 AM Jerusalem Time, which is 7:00 PM U.S. East Coast time and 4:00 PM West Coast time.

Change number is 2 is:  The weekly episode of our new feature, Jerusalem Stories will continue to air on Sunday Night at 11:00 PM and will be replayed 2:00 AM Thursday Jerusalem time (7:00 PM East Coast U.S. and 4:00 PM West Coast U.S.) and then on Friday, 11:00 AM Jerusalem Time (4:00 AM East Coast U.S. and 1:00 AM West Cost U.S.).
Got it?
Hey, just stay tuned, we'll keep you posted

Shabbos Nachamu - Shabbos Jerry!

The 9 Days of Jerry always includes one Shabbat, which is of course called "Shabbos Jerry".
The greatest Kiddush HaShem we at Radio Free Nachlaot get to perform all year long is when we TURN OFF THE BROADCAST when Shabbat begins in Jerusalem!
Imagine - our little Internet radio station, with hundreds of people all around the world listening - the biggest audience we have all year - and we turn it off for Shabbat. Gevaldt.
It's always such an amazing feeling - and always wonderful to turn it back on again after Shabbos to have many more listeners return!
We're off the air l'kavod Shabbos Kodesh before 6:55pm Jerusalem time and we'll be BACK with the rest of the entire WEEK of 5th Annual 9 DAYS OF JERRY on Saturday night, sometime after Rabbaynu Tam time (yes as always all times are Jerusalem times!)
The 9 Days of Jerry continue through "Isru Jerry" (Friday August 15th). Much more Jerry to come next week!
From Jerry's Shabbos table to yours - Shabbat Shalom!
(Original photo by Rosie McGee, which I only found out about last December at Blues for Challah - I've been using this picture for years as "Jerry's Shabbos Table." It's really a picture of Jerry at a French chateau in 1971! But what can I say, it's obviously a perfect image to use to celebrate Shabbos Jerry!)
