OVADYA & Black Fire w/ David Forman Project
September 3, 2017 | 4:00 pm-6:00 pm$8
Ovadya Black Fire – ‘The Music of Transcendence’ (CD Release Party!)
“Pink Floyd Meets Mid-East?”
Someone once said that—I don’t know if that’s totally true, but Ovadya has been playing eclectic music and textures, and playing it before diverse audiences for over ten years…
…all the way from opening for Eric Burdon & the Animals to Piamenta (the “Israeli Jimi Hendrix”) & benefits, to clubs to live radio, from festivals to synagogues to benefits to intimate coffee houses. Their music has been featured on radio nationally and locally (WXRT, WNUR, WBEZ, WNUR, WLUP and many more), charting in CMJ and grabbing major (Polygram) label interest and indie label offers. Press on Ovadya (and its music) includes Chicago Sun Times affiliates, Chicago Tribune, Illinois Entertainer, Yediot Achoronot, (Israel’s biggest newspaper), Guitar World and many other newspapers / periodicals.
Ovadya Band Members:
Amazing, powerful striking vocals. Ovadya would not be the same without Terrence and his astounding vocal textures.
One of the absolute best drummers in Chicago and beyond. Ovadya would not be the same without him and his incredible, soulful beats.
Sensitive, musical, sax and violinist. Ovadya would not be the same without her and her tuneful intuition.
will be sitting in with Ovadya and lending his enticing rhythm and lead guitar licks to a couple tunes. (Some might remember when he pinch-hit his vocals with us a couple years ago at the Greater Chicago Jewish Fest.)
Is a melodic, solid, overall great bassist (and a songwriter in his own right) and we are glad to be playing with him!
David Forman Project: I have been playing bass for twenty years with various bands and singer/songwriters. I have recently recorded an album of my own music which is coming out in the next couple months. The album is being produced by Matt Walker, former drummer for the Smashing Pumpkins, Morrissey, Filter, Garbage and Liz Phair. Tony Levin plays bass on one of the acoustic songs. I liken my playing to a combination of Flea and Les Claypool. I go a good kind of nuts on stage.
