CD release party in Edmonton, Alberta, October 19
KlezMerovitz featuring Allan Merovitz is heading to the provincial capital. Following a successful CD release concert at Calgary's Ironwood Stage and Grill, KlezMerovitz is heading north to launch the recording with a concert at the Sidetrack Café in Edmonton on October 19th.

The Sidetrack is located at 10333 112th Street in Edmonton. Showtime on Tuesday the 19th of October is 8 pm. See the website for details (www.sidetrackcafe.com) or call (780) 421-1326

KlezMerovitz featuring Allan Merovitz combines the vocal talents of one of Canada's finest interpreters of traditional Jewish repertoire with a talented group of musicians whose backgrounds include the jazz, rock, folk and classical genres.

Allan Merovitz was lead singer with the Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band of Toronto for eight years. He has also recorded and toured in both North America and Europe with top klezmer and Yiddish groups, including Ot Azoy of Amsterdam and the Simcha Klezmer ensemble.

The new CD features original songs by Allan Merovitz as well as some new arrangements of traditional material. Folk, jazz and worldbeat influences all find their way into the traditional klezmer compositions.

Formed less than two years ago, KlezMerovitz has performed at clubs, concerts, for CBC, the Epcor Centre and as well as for private functions and community events. The group also backs Allan Merovitz in a number of theatrical performances, including his interactive show, The Wedding Bard.
