Singer-songwriter Matisyahu performs at North Shore’s Crystal Bay Casino

Matisyahu takes the stage at Crystal Bay Casino on Saturday, July 8.

Singer-songwriter Matisyahu is set to play North Shore's Crystal Bay Casino on Saturday, July 8.

"His performances were a raw expression of his spirituality at that time and were supported by musicians who played a foundation of roots reggae augmented by the energy of a rock trio," states the artist's online biography.

Shortly thereafter, his career fully launched in 2005 when he performed alongside Phish frontman Trey Anastasio at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

Fans caught on to Matisyahu's improvisational jams and personal songs, and the rest is history.

"Now, more than a decade later, Matisyahu has formed a band that truly gives itself over to the music on par with his lyrical desire to connect to something beyond the self," continues the bio.

And the trend is something that brings audiences of all types closer together.
