The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band Brings it All Back Home

Saturday, February 5, 2005
The Isabel Bader Theatre
93 Charles Street West
Tickets are $20 available from TicketKing (416) 872-1212

"...an infectious mix of orchestrated mayhem."
—Toronto Life

"...[a] combination of rootedness, compositional smarts and virtuosic performance that works beautifully."
—Sing Out Magazine

Fresh off the creation of a new music video and a cross-country tour, the Bulgars will blow into the Bader with a new program that will combine new instrumental and vocal compositions, presentations of newly discovered musical gems obtained from the Archive of Jewish music in Ukraine, and extensive, loving re-workings of some of the band's older material, updating it to reflect the current state of affairs.

Rooted in Toronto, the Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band brings together the remarkable talents of six great musicians. FBKB leader and trumpeter David Buchbinder (who also created and composed the music for SHURUM BURUM Jazz Circus- the hit show that excited audiences at the Stone Distillery last October) Victor Bateman – double bass Robert Stevenson – clarinet and bass clarinet, Marilyn Lerner – piano, keyboards and accordion and Dave Wall – vocals and percussion. For the first time in their history, the Bulgars will be appearing at a major concert without a drummer, taking the opportunity presented by drummer Daniel Barnes' sabbatical in Europe to explore a different sound, adding special guests Peter Lutek (all the saxophones and clarinets) and Stephen Donald on trombone to round out the ensemble.
