Akiva the Believer

Akiva the Believer is a Master Drummer who is reintroducing drumming back into Jewish prayer settings. He is the first ordained "Holy Drummer" since the Temple was destroyed thousands of years ago.

Akiva plays at synagogues, retreats, drum circles and concerts around the world. Akiva played with the father of Jewish music, Shlomo Carlebach, zt'l. Later he played with Paul of Peter, Paul & Mary. In recent years he has been playing with a who's who of Jewish music including Shefa Gold, Alberto Mizrachi, Craig Taubman, Gad Elbaz, Debbie Friedman, zt'l., and Storahtelling. Lately, he is branching out, playing in folk, gospel, and interfaith settings.

Akiva's first CD, "The Rhythm of G!d" is finally out and available here.

HE is working on his first book: "Holy Drumming: A Manual for Drummers Accompanying People at Prayer", b.n. He has been asked to teach his approach at the major Jewish seminaries. He has opened a school, The Holy Drumming Institute and graduated his first class. Akiva has been working on his invention, "The Electrified Tambourine."

Akiva lives on a beach in Huntington. There he runs a small shul where people come to sing, pray, and dance!

Dean Silva and The Angry Young Men Band

If you're a fan of Billy Joel, and you like completely live music, no samples, tracks, or studio magic… Angry Young Men is a great band to see! Catch them before they're not a secret anymore...! Each member of the latest tribute to the music of Billy Joel hails from Long Island. His entire catalogue is metaphorically "embedded in their souls, as well as "encoded in each of their DNA."


Deerheart is the nom du rock of Tom Ciorciari, a veteran of the 80s Garage scene in both NYC and Boston. Forging tunes and strumming stringed things since he was 5, Ciorciari writes songs that tear down your heart, build you back up and then make you want to fall in love all over again; songs that touch something deep inside and resonate with listeners long after the final note has faded. Over a course of seven albums, Dearhearts music spans over 100 songs.
The band, a tight-knit group of brilliant musicians who have come together around Ciorciari’s songwriting, brings life to his irresistible melodies and incisive lyrics.
Deerheart is comprised of Tom Ciorciari (vocals and guitar), Tony LoGuercio (guitar, keys and vocals), Tom Licameli (guitar and vocals), Iain Morrison (bass and vocals), Mark Pohl (drums, percussion, vocals and guitar), and Jessica Upham (vocals and percussion).
Sometimes dirty, sometimes jangly, sometimes tender, sometimes angry, Deerheart is your new favorite band.
Currently, Deerheart is hard at work, pushing to release a full album by late September.
