The New York Times says: "Of the many klezmer bands, the one that comes closest to the ideal is Kapelye." Kapelye, now in its 25th year of recording and touring worldwide, is one of the original bands responsible for the renewed interest in klezmer music. Kapelye's popular appeal over the years has won it a brand new audience as teens and college age fans of alternative rock and folk music have found a kindred spirit in the band's passionate, often highly spirited performances.

The Washington Post says: "Anyone would be hard pressed to keep his toes restrained while listening to the sounds of this talented ensemble."

Kapelye's fusion of Old World traditions with New World influences creates a unique brand of entertainment that reaches out to each member of the audience. An evening with Kapelye will be one that you will remember for a long time.

Netherlands Jewish Week says: "….a great success. A wildly enthusiastic audience called Kapelye back for three encores.

Kapelye is made up of: Eric Berman, tuba/bass
Ken Maltz, clarinet
Peter Sokolow, keyboard/vocals
