About the Event

Film: Road to Eden

ROAD TO EDEN is a feature-length music documentary about Dan Nichols, one of the most influential Jewish musicians of his generation.

Concert: Dan Nichols & Eighteen Perform

Daycare available during the film, so the kinds can join to rock out for the show.
Limited Space! Please register by Friday, March 7th at noon! Choose "babysitting" when you buy online. 

About Dan Nichols: Dan Nichols is a singular talent in the world of Jewish music. He is one of the most dynamic, influential and beloved Jewish musicians in North America. Dan’s melodies have become an integral part of the spiritual and liturgical experience of countless individuals and Jewish communities.

Dan is a product of the Jewish camping movement. He spent ten summers at the Goldman Union Camp in Zionsville, Indiana before receiving his degree in vocal performance at the University of North Carolina. In 1995, realizing the potential of music to make a meaningful connection with Jewish youth, Dan established the Jewish rock band Eighteen. Since that time, Dan and Eighteen have released eight full-length studio albums. Each one has received critical acclaim and has been celebrated by Jewish adults and youth alike.  

Dan’s anthology includes a wide range of sounds and styles, from energetic Jewish rock anthems to moving interpretations of traditional Jewish liturgy. Jewish youth and adults from around the world draw inspiration from Dan’s music and its positive message of Jewish values, identity and pride. 

Dan’s live performances are legendary for their unrestrained energy and infectious spirit. Dan spends more than 180 days each year on the road, where he often serves as artist-in-residence for congregations and camp communities. He has performed live in Israel at the historic fortress of Masada and in the studio for the groundbreaking XM Radio presentation of Radio Hanukkah. Dan created the Road to Eden Deep South Sukkot Tour to bring the music and message of Sukkot to numerous communities in the southern United States, where he and his band played 11 shows in 10 days. Their experiences will be captured in the forthcoming film, Road to Eden. In addition to these highlights, Dan has been featured at conferences and conventions of nearly every major Jewish movement, including the URJ Biennial, NFTY Convention, BBYO International, and Limmud. 

In addition to his remarkable musical talents, Dan is a gifted teacher. He has served on the faculty of Hava Nashira since 2000. In 2009 he co-founded Shulhouse Rock, a songleading workshop for Jewish high-school students.  

Dan lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife Elysha and his daughter Ava.
