Reggae artist Matisyahu comes to the Brown Theatre

Print

An Acoustic Evening with Matisyahu with special guest Levi Robin comes to the Brown Theatre Monday, February 4th. This acoustic concert starts at 7:30 PM with door opening at 7:00 PM. This is a reserved seating event with an approximate run time of two hours. Standard ticket prices are $45.00, $33.00, and $27.00 depending on where you sit. Kentucky Center Members get waved handling fees over the phone and a 15% discount on the $33.00 priced tickets making them $28.50.

If you are a fan of Walk Off the Earth, Bob or Ziggy Marley, SOJA, and/or Sublime than you should check out Matisyahu, a rap artist whose topics reflect on the glories of traditional Judaism over Reggae beats in a dancehall style. Matisyahu’s debut album, Shake Off the Dust… Arise, was released in 2004 under a Hasidic Jew persona wearing a black suit with a full untrimmed beard, long curls, and a wide-brimmed black hat worn over a yarmulke. It wasn’t until his second album, Youth, was released in March 2006 that Matisyahu captured national attention and a Grammy nomination in the Best Reggae Album category. In late 2011 the singer revealed his new look with a shaved head and payes cut. His 2012 album, Spark Seeker, is a more secular pop album which alludes to spiritual freedom and letting go of his trademark look, but still holds on to his characteristic mix of raps and vocals complimented by a blend of electronica and traditional Jewish instrumentation. Spark Seeker was produced by Kool Kojak who has previously worked with Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj.    

I will be interested in seeing how Matisyahu has transformed over the past year as a musician and performer. His discography can be heard on Spotify.
