The Kadima Band

New England's #1 Simcha Band

Meet the Band

Bradley Nelson (keyboards, accordion, vocals) РBradley was born and raised in Brockton where he grew up listening to the Jewish music of The Kadima Band and Safam. A classically trained musician since 5, he also began performing with The Kadima Band, sitting in on clarinet. When his father Larry Nelson (founder of The Kadima Band) passed away in 2008, Bradley took over on keyboards, accordion, and vocals keeping The Kadima Band legacy alive. In addition to performing with The Kadima Band, he just graduated from UMass Dartmouth with a degree in  Operations Management.

 

Lloyd Baron (percussion) - Lloyd has been performing for over thirty years with top function and club bands throughout New England. In addition, he performed with Gerry Kniewood and back up band to Leslie Gore. His specialty is playing a wide variety of styles, a perfect fit for The Kadima Band.

 

Jill Goldman (lead vocals) – Jill is the newest member of The Kadima Band, and loves to sing music of many different styles, especially the Hebrew songs she learned as a child, jazz standards, and “oldies”. She also sings with several local choirs, and occasionally composes music. When she is not singing, she is busy recording voice-overs, and being a mom to two teenage boys.

 

 

Additional musicians (sax, clarinet, flute, guitar) if requested.
