A rock, folk, and blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter who lives in Israel, Lloyd is to blues guitar what Matisyahu is to hip hop music – the best! Joined by two of Chicago’s most sought after and renowned Jazz and Blues artists, don’t miss this trio’s only San Diego performance!

One of the most popular blues/rock singers and guitarists in Israel.
- The Washington Post
His guitar playing alone is worth the price of admission, and when you
 add in his vocals and strong songwriting skills, this is a winner.
