"The Klezmatics prove themselves to be sensitive interpreters of any artistic language they choose." (Billboard Magazine) The Grammy Award-winning Klezmatics play klezmer music, a form of Eastern European Jewish music that resembles jazz in its inventiveness, folk in its deep roots, and dance music in its celebratory tone. With hints of Middle Eastern harmonies and rhythms, The Klezmatics will thrill you with their rhythmic artistry, musical technique, and beautifully harmonious vocals. "They aren't just the best band in the klezmer vanguard ... they rank among the best bands on the planet. Jewish traditional music is just the starting point for songs that jump, rock and swing - sometimes all at the same time." (Time Out, New York) "The Klezmatics have owned klezmer and Yiddish music for the past 25 years. Universally regarded as the genre's most innovative band, the Klezmatics have spread the Yiddish gospel at performances ranging from the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to underground night clubs in Budapest to outdoor festivals in Berlin - not to mention the occasional New York wedding or bar mitzvah (they even performed at Charlotte's nuptials in 'Sex and the City')" (Wall Street Journal) Platinum Members $46 Gold Members $50 Regular $55 University/College Students $20 High School Students $5
