Klezmerfest!, NYC, 21 Dec 2010

Tue Dec 21st, 8.30 pm
Klezmerfest! ft. Greg Wall
Sixth Street Synagogue: 325 East Sixth Street (b/n 1st and 2nd Ave), NYC

Klezmerfest! is a outstanding klezmer band in the great Eastern European tradition. They have been delighting audiences for years at such venues as the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the Eldridge Street Project, the Knitting Factory, and synagogues and schools throughout the Northeast. Featuring some of the top musicians in the New York area, they have two CDs out and are a great example of the New York klezmer/hasidic sound as played by such groups as the Epsteins, Beckerman, and Rudy Tepel. With Greg Wall-clarinet, Jordan Hirsch – cornet, Zevy Zions- accordion, Brian Glassman-bass, and Aaron Alexander- drums, as klezmer giant Pete Sokolow says in the liner notes to their most recent recording: “Make no mistake, dear listeners – this is the emese zakh (real thing)…… It is totally honest and completely true to the ideals of the music. It just doesn’t come any better.”

Cover: $15 (includes a drink).
