"Josh Nelson is gifted with song and soul!"

-Rabbi David Wolpe
Sinai Temple
Los Angeles, California


"Memphis is the home of great music and Josh fit in with the best.  He didn't perform on Sukkot eve, he inspired everyone to feel the spirit, meaning, and power of the fall festival known as hechag  - THE holiday.  It's never a risk to have Josh Nelson in a congregation if the goal is a deep, touching, and genuine Jewish experience.

— Rabbi Micah D. Greenstein
Temple Israel
Memphis, Tennessee


"When we started tossing out names for who should be our star performer, the first name that came up was Josh Nelson! Josh is one of the most engaging and dynamic artists on the Jewish music scene, and he brought a unique energy to our event. He obviously pours his heart and soul into every performance!"

— Alison Rosen
Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston


"Rarely can one combine incredible musical talent and charisma as Josh does... As a soloist or with his band, Josh engages the listener and encourages a sense of community. His performances are energetic and interactive… in a word, inspiring. Josh Nelson is one of the most talented young faces in modern Jewish music. I highly recommend him."

— Rabbi Jeremy Morrison
The Riverway Project at Temple Israel
Boston, MA 


"Josh, you delivered the goods and more! The unusually wide range of personalities and ages that attended the concert may have posed a challenge for another artist, but not for you. You engaged all of us with an exceptionally spirited concert and you were very generous with your time and talent. Moreover, your sweet nature is evident in your music. I am very grateful not only for your music, but for the thoughtfulness and generosity you demonstrated."

— Cantor Steven W. Dress
Temple Israel
Sharon, Massachusetts
Past President, New England Board of Cantors


"It’s finally here… Jewish music! The Josh Nelson Project performed at NFTY’s Convention in front of 1500 people and rocked the house! Josh’s infectious spirit and funky contemporary sound filled the ballroom where our teenagers could just dance and sing out loud. NFTY is thrilled to have introduced another amazing band into the repertoire of NFTY music and looks forward to hearing the sound of the Josh Nelson Project throughout the regions and camps!" 

— Hope Chernak
Former Managing Director
National Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY)


"Simply put: The Josh Nelson Project is the next name in Contemporary Jewish Music! True, Josh's music is contagious... What makes it extra special, however, is Josh himself. It is impossible to keep your eyes off of Josh as he shares his music with you. He draws you in and you become a part of the music. He is energetic, gentle, soulful, fun, and authentic. This is Josh... We all fell in love with him. People of all ages, from 16 - 76, sang, swayed, clapped and danced. He no longer is a stranger to us. By the end of the performance, Josh became part of our family."

— Rabbi David Wolfman
Former Director, Northeast Council
Union for Reform Judaism


"Our goal was to bring our camps together in a social setting to enjoy Jewish music. The day was a huge success thanks to you and your band! Our requirements were a bit unusual, and you combined a great show with understanding, patience, and customer service. We thank you!"
