Celebrating 25 years of the “Not Exactly Christmas Show”, internationally renowned Israeli singer-songwriter David Broza brings together his Cuban band plus several special guests for an evening of stunning musicianship and artistry on December 23, 2020 at 8PM (ET). David Broza & Friends will perform live in front of a private audience at the City Winery in New York City, and stream the concert to several thousand fans through partnerships with performing arts venues throughout the USA.
David Broza was scheduled to perform in concert in New York on November 4,1995, a date sadly coinciding with the day Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in Tel Aviv. The show was canceled, but the theatre doors remained open for anyone who wanted to come inside. The evening turned into an all-night vigil, drawing mourners from around the NYC region who gathered together to talk, sing, read poetry and mourn. The concert was rescheduled for the only available date: December 24th, 1995, and it became the first “Not Exactly Christmas Show”. Over the years, the venue has changed from Town Hall to 92nd St Y to Symphony Space to the Streicker Center.
This year, the stage will be at the City Winery in New York, while several venues will host the show virtually across the country. Every year is a holiday reunion, as fans and friends come to the sold-out show. The “Not Exactly Christmas Show” features Broza’s repertoire of well-known and best-loved classics. With the addition of surprise guest musicians, you never know who will turn up and what will happen, demonstrating Broza’s versatility across the musical spectrum.
David Broza concerts are exhilarating, energetic, moving and enhanced with vibrant storytelling. The evening will include Broza’s signature fusion of his Israeli hits, Spanish flamenco, Cuban rhythms, American folk, and rock and roll.+ More... - Less...
