Rabbi Dan Ain

Rabbi and revivalist Dan Ain gathers those who are open to being reached. He finds holiness in honest conversation, in the spaces where people can say what they really think and allow others to do the same. His latest project Because Jewish creates opportunities for our religious perspectives to be in genuine dialogue with our artists, our musicians and our everyday lives. The Times of Israel says: "Because Jewish represents the zeitgeist of Jewish Brooklyn, circa 2016. Its raison d’être is to offer community and presence amidst the racing speed and technological isolation of the here and now." For the past decade, Rabbi Dan has been curating these offerings around New York City at the 92nd St Y (as Director of Tradition and Innovation), Brooklyn Bowl, (le) poisson rouge and as the rabbi of The New Shul. The High Holiday services he leads, with blues musician and cantorial singer Jeremiah Lockwood of The Sway Machinery, is an example of finding meaningful ways to worship in the 21st century – creating experiences that speak to people living in today's world using the language, lessons and music of the past.

Jeremiah Lockwood

As a young man, Jeremiah Lockwood apprenticed with Piedmont Blues musician Carolina Slim, and studied chazzanus with his grandfather Cantor Jacob Konigberg. His band The Sway Machinery seeks inspiration from New York City’s cultural geography and has performed at festivals around the world, including, perhaps most notably, the Festival of the Desert in Timbuktu, Mali. He toured for years as guitarist in the band Balkan Beat Box, has scored numerous film and video projects, and served as a 2011 Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra Composer Fellow. His most recent records include a 2014 blues-oriented solo album entitled LOCKWOOD, and a new record from The Sway Machinery, Purity and Danger, released in 2015. Jeremiah is currently a PhD candidate at Stanford University where he is engaged in research on the culture of Cantorial music.

Shoko Nagai

Shoko Nagai, born in Nagoya, Japan, is a composer, pianist, accordionist and improviser. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 1999 she moved to New York City and quickly established herself in various scenes performing with such renowned artists as John Zorn, Butch Morris, Frank London, Miho Hatori (CiboMatto), Satoshi Takeishi, Erik Friedlander, Marc Ribot, Elliot Sharp, to name a few. Nagai performed in Sweden for the Nobel Prize Ceremony for Herta Muller in 2010. She is a winner of grant from NYFA 2010 and Jazzjaunts 2008.

John Bollinger

John Bollinger is known in the New York scene as an explosive force, his fearsome groove and bone shattering bursts of energy adding an incredible excitement to his wonderful feel for a multiplicity of genres. He has worked with, among others, Barbez, Nanuchka and Guignol. John debuted with The Sway Machinery in 2009 and is featured on all of the bands subsequent recordings. In addition to his work as a musician, John is an educator and an accomplished visual artist in a variety of media.
