The Boston Kleztet has played together for several years. We do a lot of bnei mitzvot and weddings, community celebrations, parties, etc. Our musical repertoire includes a good deal of authentic klezmer pieces from the bands of the 1910-1920's, some Yiddish folk music, and some interesting blends of klezmer music with, for instance, Greek or Balkan music. We also play Israeli folk dance music and modern Israeli classical tunes as well as the general mix of Yiddish/klezmer/Yeshiva-style/nigun/Israeli gemish that is played during those frenetic moments when the bride and groom enter the room. We play some original pieces as well. A trio from the band is available for smaller events or for processional music, music for the chuppah, etc. Israeli or Eastern European dance instruction can be arranged. We can also provide advice on wedding reception planning. We have been known to play swing music when the mood is right.
