Jews Who Rock: A Musical History Tour

1360 N. Prospect Avenue, WI, 53202
414-390-5730
Without producer Milt Gabler, Bill Haley & His Comets would have remained nothing more than second-rate R&B impersonators. With Gabler’s sharp ear, they helped midwife the birth of rock ’n’ roll. Gabler was Jewish, as were many behind-the-scenes figures in the music industry from the 1920s onward. By the ’60s and ’70s, Jews slipped into the rock spotlight through artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond and Joey Ramone. “Jews Who Rock” includes sound recordings, concert posters and photographs illustrating the influence of Jews on the development of popular music in the late-20th century.
