YORON ISRAEL & KEY PLAYERS

Yoron Israel & Key Players makes a strong reference to Yoron’s earliest memories of hearing music in the baptist church that he grew up in. The sound of piano, hammond B3 and drums along with the voices was the defining sound in the black church of my youth. It is that sound, attitude and spirit that shapes what we do as band; combining of the secular and the sacred in the most creative and meaningful manner.
