The Best Little Klezmer Band in Texas

What do you get when you combine the rollicking sounds of a Russian circus and the jazzy rhythms of the Roaring '20s and Swingin' '30s? Klezmer music! The Best Little Klezmer Band in Texas brings the old world to life by reviving Yiddish music from the old country and America's immigrant generation. The band infuses its spirited performances of Jewish folk songs and traditional wedding dances, haunting, lyric melodies of East European Jews, fiery virtuosic Gypsy showpieces, and dazzling theater music with an electrifying world-beat that challenges audience members to remain in their seats. The ensemble carries Klezmer’s itinerant, idea-gathering spirit with them to bear on their music, which can be raucous, hypnotic, reverent and dizzying, sometimes all in one quick-changing piece. The Best Little Klezmer Band in Texas, created in 1993 as a non-profit foundation under the direction of Marcia Sterling and Dan Strba, is dedicated to the presentation, preservation and revitalization of Yiddish culture through live performance. The Klezmers continue delighting sold-out audiences coast to coast while maintaining a busy schedule at home where they perform for community events, educational young people’s programming, and multi-media productions addressing Klezmer’s poignant history.
