BIG NEWS!!! Avi & Celia are getting married. Just kidding,... but in a sense the band is. We are so very excited to announce that the group is taking on a band name. HEY MAMA.

This summer has been very good to us. Our summer tour took us through 40 shows at festivals and clubs all over the Northeast and Canada. In between tour dates we tracked our third record and full-band debut. The self-titled album “Hey Mama” was recorded with Grammy nominated producer Jack Gauthier at Lakewest Recording. We are very proud of the record, it’s our best work yet and we can’t wait to share it with you!

"Let it Rise" Has been released!  Click the CD below to order your copy.

Let it Rise can be downloaded from Digstation:

Time moves quickly these days and it seems to be rolling in good directions. We have been busy writing many new songs and carving deeper into our sound and soul. At the turn of the year we debuted our new ensemble featuring Ben Kogan on double and electric basses and vocals and Jared Seabrook on drums. It is really exciting to work with these talented gents and it allows us to stretch our music in new ways. We had a great six week tour in March into April and we're really looking forward to the shows ahead (check out the dates below).

As you all know, Avi & Celia is a grass roots, self managed musical outfit. Our music is rooted in traditions that have been passed down from one musician to the next. Our social philosophy and way of life is similarly tied to those around us who shape our influences and provide inspiration. We invite you to join our close knit community and become a member of The A&C Family. The A&C Family is a group organized to help us promote our message, music and movement
