    On Sunday Jan. 31 at 1 p.m,. Beth El invites you to join us for an exclusive 90-minute winter concert featuring singer-songwriter and guitarist Lazer Lloyd direct from his home in Israel via Zoom.

    Lloyd will bring his unique blend of roots rock, Americana, folk, blues and country to guests at the intimate show featuring songs from Lazer’s acclaimed 2020 release Tomorrow Never Comes, plus his renowned guitar jams, brand new songs, inspirational stories and more.

    Praise for Lloyd’s singing, songwriting and playing has poured in via social media from fans who have found his music and livestream hangouts to be a lifeline during the pandemic. A selection of the moving comments have been collected on a community fan page at https://tomorrownevercomes.carrd.co.

    Lloyd's face-to-face concerts came to a halt in 2020, but online it is still possible to capture the magic as described by past concert hosts such as Jerry Egherman, former President of Long Beach Temple Beth Shalom in California: “Our community is still on cloud nine days after seeing Lazer Lloyd knock their socks off with his blending of the many different styles of American blues. His guitar playing is phenomenal, his singing from the heart, his homegrown song lyrics still ring in my mind. Toes were tapping, hands were clapping and smiles were on every face. His spirit for life stands out in his stories which were nothing less than inspirational.”

    The upcoming concert, sponsored by the Albert and Eleanor Feldman Family Israel Foundation, hosted by Beth El, is part of a music series devoted to the continued cultured enrichment of the Omaha Jewish community.

    Lazer Lloyd was raised in Connecticut, but makes his home in Israel and performs all over the world. His unique blend of folk, roots rock, country blues and soaring guitar was influenced by BB King, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Neil Young and many others.

    Everyone is welcome to attend this afternoon of music, healing and friendship, which is presented at no charge thanks to the Albert and Eleanor Feldman Family Israel Foundation.
