What will they do? How far will they take their dreams? Time will tell. But for now… just keep your eyes and ears open for more from these 9 musicians - who go by DJ Matzo Ball, Market Failure, MichaLangelo, String Theory, Orkinsas, The Little Engine that could, Cracky, and Ripley & the Bey Blades.

This song is about two mamma cats and two baby cats, and their hopes and dreams. Enjoy!

Shalom Rome says Shalom BeberFest!

We were all gladiators in ancient Rome, we were sentenced to death, but then Leo was banging on the jail cell and made a rhythm that sounded cool, and the Romans liked it so they let us all out on the condition we’ll play music forever. Our music was so good, one time we broke the time-space continuum and ended up in 2018 AC in Wisconsin. Our music was remembered from back then and we were accepted as heroes. They’ll remember us for centuries! (In other words, check out their amazing Fine Arts Fest performance and download their live and studio recordings now!

Cajon Building Was a Bangin' Hobby!

Two lucky campers got to build two lucky cajons this year at Beber, one each session! The cajon is a Latin American percussion instrument, and very popular for campfire jams and such.

Pictured here is 2nd Session camper Spencer Gertz atop his creation, which features a different musical instrument on each surface, carved in with a Dremel tool and then painted.

Slappin' the bass is so yesterday, slappin' the cajon is where it's at!

Bearing Down on the Cajon!

Pro Tools/Logic 101 Hobby Gets Jiggy

We had a lot of fun in our very first Pro Tools/Logic 101 Hobby - dedicated to teaching campers how to record music on their home computers using equipment and software that they may already have, or which is very inexpensive.

Our goal was not to finish a song, persei, but we DID make some beats, which we then manipulated with special FX and plug-ins to make them very unique. So here's a reel of 6 beats, each made by one of our 6 talented Ramot campers - Gabi, Jack, Morrie, David, Izzy, and Oliver. Oh and below that is a drawing we made illustrating signal flow in a recording path. Good stuff!

Daniel and Lila

Daniel saw a video of Queen one day and was inspired to create a parody of "We are the champions". He had just won the baseball championship and decided he needed a song to celebrate all his victory and his time at Beber camp. He had a golden trophy and he decided that he needed to tell everyone just how amazing Beber camp was and, at that moment, Lila just happened to walk by. Together they decided to write a tribute to the greatest song ever.

Danielle is a softball player, singer, and actress. She also plays the keyboard and other sports! They have been besties for 7 and a half years. They decided to do a mashup of “Little do you know” and “Thunder”.
