Joy in the experience of learning. That's a big part of Rabbi Joe Black's approach to contemporary Jewish music. With children, he is energetic, surprising, and dynamic.

Rabbi Black is one of the most popular Jewish contemporary artists in the United States. He has been a featured performer at the Coalition for Alternatives in Jewish Education (CAJE) Conference as well as the Biennial Conventions of the Union for Reform Judaism. He has shared his music with hundreds of Jewish communities around the United States and Canada. He also has been featured in many acoustic music venues around the country. Rabbi Black has been honored as one of the “Top Ten Artists” in both the categories of “Jewish Children’s Music” and “Male, Adult Contemporary Jewish Music” by Moment Magazine and TARA Publications. His recordings have received accolades from sources as diverse as The New York Times,Haddasah Magazine, Parent’s Choice, The American Library Journal and Kids First: The Coalition for Quality Children’s Video.

Well-known, local acoustic trio

THIS SHOW IS AT B'NAI CHAIM SYNAGOGUE, 4716 South Coors Lane, Morrison, CO 80465.  (map)

This vibrant acoustic "trio" is made up of Mary Huckins (yes, from South Dakota) whose sweet strong vocals are the linchpin holding the group together, the smooth steady guitar playing and cool harmonies of Don Pinnella (nope, not blonde) and the charming acoustic bass work and humor of Tony Raddell. Performing originals and covers that are a unique combination of folk, bluegrass, and country with a little Celtic tinge - the trio nails their tight harmonies. They are an unusual group - they met through their careers in music therapy, working with children and adolescents who are emotionally troubled. That special capacity for empathy could explain the titanium bond the band quickly makes with their audience. All three come from musical families, and their charm stems both from the music they play and from the family feeling they bring into any concert hall or venue. Their shows are very personal! You'll walk away feeling like you've always known them. Dakota Blonde has shared the stage with Nickel Creek, John McEuen, Jimmy Ibbotson, Pete Huttlinger, Tony Furtado, Jim Horn, John Sommers, Jim Salestrom, Firefall, Mollie O'Brien and the list goes on. They also played in festivals along with folks like Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, David Crosby, Lucy Kaplansky and Greg Brown. 

Mary Huckins' song "Somebody's Brother" received top honors in the 2001 Walnut Valley Festival songwriters showcase in Winfield, Kansas and her song "Dig Real Deep" recently received top honors in the Chris Austin Song Contest at MerleFest in Wilkboro, N.C. The group was again honored to make it into the final round of the Independent Record Label Awards this past year. They are certainly on their way up!

Modern and traditional bluegrass

“If the Banjo were any good, the Beatles would have used it”. This quote came from a well-respected record producer in the 1970’s. Somewhat confused but inspired by these words, Southern Exposure emerged in 1981 and has never looked back. 

With one hand in contemporary bluegrass and the other reeling out some traditional tunes, Southern Exposure can both draw on the past and bring you to the present with a wide array of music put into the bluegrass idiom. Old favorites like “Uncle Pen”, and “Rocky Top”, mixed in with newer gems like “City Of New Orleans”, and ”Carolina In The Pines”, some old fiddle and banjo tunes with a new twist and even a little western swing and Cajun music. 

Sprinkle in a good dose of comedy on stage and you will see why they have cut a trail to concert halls and festivals all over the Rocky Mt. Region. Over the years, Southern Exposure has played major events such as The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Grass, and The Black Hills Festival in South Dakota. They have appeared at noteworthy venues around Colorado such as The Arvada CO Center, The Paramount Theatre, The Boulder CO Theatre, Gerald Ford Amphitheatre in Vail, The Greeley Stampede, and are the annual band for The Denver CO Post Train to Cheyenne Frontier Days. Major events include The National Hockey League all-star week in Denver CO, Taste of Colorado, First Night Colorado, a performance at The Air Force Academy, and The KYGO Fourth of July show.
