About Zebulon Sound and Light:
Situated above a plumber's supply in Chelsea, Zebulon Sound and Light (aka ZEB'S) is a unique recording studio and performance space that provides musicians and artists with a place to create, display and perform. ZEB's proprietor and renowned jazz guitarist and producer Saul "Zebulon" Rubin brings his own unique music and art sensibility to this authentic jazz loft.
The space itself is a spacious nearly 2,000 square foot open loft, flooded with light. The studio boasts a beautiful Yamaha grand piano and a warm-sounding vintage Trident mixing board. Bamboo mobiles are suspended from the ceiling and original artwork hangs from every wall. The room creates a feeling of openness that reflects our own responsiveness to new musical and artistic ideas.

Wednesday Jazz Vocalist Series @ ZEB's:
Since February 2010, every Wednesday night ZEB's has hosted the Jazz Vocalist Series, consisting of a performance by a featured vocalist followed by a jam session for professional singers and instrumentalists. Some of New York's most talented established singers and rising stars have relished singing at ZEB's because of the supportive environment and loving community of singers and musicians we have built here.
The Jazz Vocalist Series at ZEB'S has hosted more than 120 singers, including (to name a few): Gregory Porter, Marianne Solivan, Giacomo Gates, Marilyn Kleinberg, Lezlie Harrison, Vicki Burns, Tessa Souter, Johnny O'Neal, Bob Dorrough, Gabrielle Stravelli, Miles Griffith, Marion Cowings, Rosanna Vitro, and many more.
Singers who wish to participate in the jam session are encouraged to arrive to hear the featured singer and sign up early.
The cover charge for the Jazz Vocalist Series at ZEB's is $10.00. Doors open at 8:00 PM. The featured performance begins between 8:30 and 8:45.
Our primary focus is to record and produce music in a relaxed, inspiring studio setting. We are a full-service recording studio equipped to produce projects of any size or style (and highly experienced at doing so).
