the sound of

jewish song, defined.

Our performances deliver warmth and sheer knock-your-socks-off vocal power through Ahavat Yisrael  (a love of Israel) and Yiddishkeit  (the Jewish way of life). The Chicago Tribune raves, “What comes across in every moment of Listen Up!’s performance is an adoration for singing —  turning melodies and harmonies on their heads to come up with something unique and full of freshness and appeal.”

Rebecca, Eli, Steve, and Aron pack a giant sound (and a big warm hug) with jubilant Jewish pride that gets audiences of all ages right in their kishkes. Get ready to sing along with the soundtrack of Jewish connection.

I fancy myself a diva of shower and stage. I relate better to 4-year olds than 40 year olds as a early childhood teacher for more than 34 years. Jewish music is a great way to keep Jews together generation to generation. Love singing with my hubby!

I’ve got a cappella in my soul. Arranging and singing (and playing drums) makes me happy. I believe that Jewish song is the secret to Jewish connection and literacy. Secretly, I’m a ethnomusicology fanboy. Love singing with my wife!

During difficult times, I turn to my own family and the Listen Up! family for comfort and strength. I spend my days experiencing the world through my toddler’s eyes. I love performing!

I enjoy the meaningful way music creates connections with others, its powerful healing quality, and how it stirs the depths of our souls. I enjoy composing, arranging, and writing parody lyrics. My passions are ultimate frisbee and chicken soup!

listen up! helped to make our jewish culture fest a great success for our community. their music is a delight – inclusive and great for families. They were a pleasure to work with.
