NYC-based ISLE of KLEZBOS approaches tradition with irreverence and respect. The soulful, fun-loving powerhouse klezmer band has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998. Band repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing & retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking song, re-grooved standards, and genre-defying originals.
The band features:
Shoko Nagai /Accordion
Eve Sicular /Drums
Alex Parke /Clarinet & Pifano flute
Ben Holmes /Trumpet
Dave Hofstra/ Bass & Tuba
This event is produced by Mark Morgenstern, owner and music booker extraordinaire of the Rosendale Cafe. Mark is on the Board of Advisors of the Rosendale Theatre Collective.
