Israeli Guitar Legend, Yossi Piamenta will be a special guest on Matisyahu’s Festival of Light show tonight at Webster Hall. We have been giving out tickets to both the Matisyahu shows and Sephardic Music Festival shows every night. (The winners are; Rafi Cohen, Megan Olson, Elizabeth Weissman, Heather Tauber, Ian Kaplan, Dyainu Kaplan-Nealis, Eli, Nili, Rachel Oser, Elazar Nudell, Yonit Tanenbaum, Aaron Moeller, Dianna Hochman, Dina Sara Meyer, Josh Becker, Lawrence Clingman, Devorah Leah Mizrahi, Yossi Belkin). So Big Ups to them on that and to Shemspeed for giving away all them damn tickets. Now back to this random blog, Yossi is an amazing guitarist, composer and singer. He holds down the psychedelic scene in NY and either has a guitar or book of Tehillim in hand. If you aren’t headed to the Matis show tonight, don’t fret because Yossi Piamenta will be performing a full set of his own for the Piamenta Chanukah/Sephardic Music Fest show at Highline Ballroom on Thursday eve along with Eden Mi Qedem, Diwon and a slew of special guests. There will be about 600 people there so get ready to meet some new folks.
