Noy Ben Ami, Saturday from 5pm at the Beach Hotel.

Noy Ben Ami always brings a well-thought-out blend of his original music, which is constantly fusing elements of rock, blues, funk, jazz, soul, RnB, bossa nova and world music, together with covers of hits from all eras and genres that he performs in his own style.

He plays up-beat and chilled-down music and says that he just feels the vibe of the crowd and place, and then starts to play…

With a real love for the stage, Noy is theatrical and engaging and loves the straight unmediated communication with the crowd – and he gets a lot of love back. 

Saturday from 5pm at the Beach Hotel.
