CONEJO VALLEY, CA [CHI] — On Tuesday, Chabad of Conejo hosted 1700 people at Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza for “Matisyahu Unplugged,” a strictly acoustic concert to benefit their Building Campaign. The large turnout for the up-close and personal performance was treated to a surprise appearance by popular singer Trevor Hall, Matisyahu’s long time friend and co-song writer.
In the spirit of Adar, Mendy Pellin served as Master of Ceremonies, adding his unique humor to the evening’s program. Long-time fans felt the show was one of Matisyahu’s finest performances, filled with a mix of inspiration and humor. Matisyahu gave the enthusiastic audience an additional 45 minutes of song, finishing with “Jerusalem,“ “One Day” and an encore rendition of “King Without a Crown” that sent the audience to their feet while shouting ”Moshiach now!” in unison.
