After a year off, David Broza’s annual “Not Exactly Christmas Eve Concert” will return tonight. “Israel’s Bruce Springsteen” will once again bring the December 24 celebration to New York’s 92Y. In addition to Broza—who has shared stages with Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and others—the evening’s house band will include Tali Rubinstein (recorder), Shaul Eshet (piano), Uri Kleinman (bass), Jonathan Levy (bass) and Yuval Lion (drums).
Ali Paris, Maya Isac and Tamar Eisenman will serve as special guests.
Before last year, Broza hosted a December 24 performance in New York for two decades. Instead, he performed a few days later at New York’s Town Hall on January 7, which is Greek Orthodox Christmas.
