Singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and teacher, Mayer has over 35 million hits on YouTube for his “Subway Sax Battle,”
Zach Mayer has performed with John Zorn, Frank London, Michael Alpert, Joey Weisenberg, and Bobby McFerrin.
He performs internationally with Zion80, a 10-piece Jewish Afrobeat band inspired by the music of Shlomo Carlebach, and his folk sextet, Night Tree, has toured internationally and has released two albums produced by Seamus Egan of SOLAS.
4:00 PM: Workshop
We’ll learn a tune together, slowly by ear. If you don’t know a lot of tunes, or you’re looking to add to your repertoire, this is a great opportunity for the Klez-pros and amateurs alike to learn something new!
5:30 PM: Jam
Bring a tune to lead, play along, do a dance, or just come to listen! More dancing will be led by Adah. All are welcome!
Followed by Reception with drinks & snacks!Register
