First/Last - Chillent

"Since 2015, Chillent has heated up Pittsburgh's favorite venues, festivals, and airwaves with their one of a kind "soul stew."
Their hot plate of original compositions, spicy covers, and funky interpretations of Jewish classics have fans comparing their live performances to "klezmer Phish," and "Maceo Parker at a bar mitzvah."  

Chillent is a Pittsburgh based genre bending 'fusion' band who blend traditional Jewish with Funk, Jazz, Blues, Calypso, Rock, and Reggae. They released their debut full-length entitled Jewish Soul Stew last June and expect to catch them perform live as the festival season heats up, or at their seemingly monthly stop at The Park House. I want to thank Gedaliah Aronson (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
The Pittsburgh music scene is a vibrant, supportive, and very eclectic environment and always growing. There is really great music all over this city and I believe it will be a known destination for musicians and music lovers In the near future.

Thanks, Gedaliah. Not sure if this was the same tour but I have a signed Vanilla Ice tour shirt from several years ago. The only signed shirt out of 50 (that habit got WAY too expensive) that I did not acquire myself. Much thanks to my brother who was at the show.
