Modern Jewish Sounds Concert: Jake Sherman Dream Band

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Born in Boston, Jake Sherman learned classical piano by listening to his father play Bach every morning. If not for an intervention – stumbling upon the catalog of Weird Al Yankovic – he would have followed in his father’s path or perhaps become a jazz purist. Fast forward some years and it’s clear Jake has found a way to combine his appreciation of great songwriting with his piano/organ-playing prowess. He has become a go-to musician on recordings, and tours for artists including Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, Emily King, Blood Orange, Benny Sings, Doyle Bramhall II, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Andrew Bird, and Nick Hakim. His most recent album, Jake Sherman Gets Sexy, is a journey through modern dating and relationships, with a point of view that is somehow both poignant and Weird Al-esque. The Museum’s Modern Jewish Sounds series welcomes Jake Sherman Dream Band to the stage of Edmond J. Safra Hall.

Doors will open at 6:30 PM. NOTE: This program is a live-only event and will not be recorded.

This program is made possible in part by support from the Battery Park City Authority.
