Charleston’s own klezmer group provides fabulous music entertainment for festivals, jewish weddings, bar-mitzvah, ceremonies and parties of all kinds.  We are available to perform at your wedding, barmitzvah/batmitzvah, private party, or community event.  Available as a Trio or a Quintet.   We had a blast at Chanukah in the Square, performing for the entire Jewish Community in Charleston, including holocaust survivor Dr. Ruth (She was dancing and singing by my side for Hava Nagila 🙂  along with our Mayor John Tecklenburg.  We closed the show with our original arrangement of Djelem Djelem, the Romani National Anthem and featured an entire break dancing crew.  We just closed the 2017 season with performances at Piccolo Spoleto’s World of Jewish Culture and are looking forward to next season.

It was freezing cold and raining at the Lowcountry Nosh this year.  Our break dancer didn’t mind one bit!

here is our trio performing our little arrangement of Hevenu Shalom Aleichem
