The Klez Katz
The Klez Katz are dedicated to the preservation and encouragement of the rich musical heritage of the Yiddish diaspora. Their repertoire encompasses freilach, bulgar, sher, terkishe, khosidl, theater music, folk songs and even the odd klezmer-influenced jazz tune, performed on tenor and soprano saxes, trombone, flute, keyboard, accordion, bass and vocals. Four fun-loving hard (and soft) blowing klezmer musicians comprise The Klez Katz, ready to set off a musical fireworks show right you right now!
