A Signature Event of the Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations Discussion Series

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Wednesday, March 11 (7:30pm)

Two superstars of the music world – E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg and Israeli singer/songwriter David Broza – will discuss the role of spirituality in their careers. Leading this fascinating discussion will be former Boston Globe music critic Steve Morse

Rock 'n' Scroll – The Spirituality of Two Music Icons is presented as a Signature Event of the Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations Discussion Series.  Weinberg and Broza will explore how their own spirituality has informed their music, performance and personal journey.  Following the intimate discussion, the evening will culminate with a musical performance.

Max Weinberg is the longtime drummer for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. He is widely known for his role as bandleader for Conan O'Brien on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. In 2014, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band.

International composer, guitarist, and singer David Broza has filled concert halls around the world. A modern troubadour of urban folk-rock, he was featured in the PBS special David Broza at Masada with Jackson Browne and his American debut album, Away from Home, was praised by The New York Times as one of the best pop albums of the year.
