The Austin Klezmorim; Performing for Generations
The oldest Klezmer band in the Southwest, the Austin Klezmorim have coined the term Texas Klez and defined the Texas Klezmer style. Featuring some of the finest musicians in the Lone Star State the band boogies their bulgars and struts that kosher BBQ.
Affectionately called the “Yiddish Yahoos” and the “Rabbis of Rhythm” their unique lively approach to the music always offers up laughter, smiles, and shouts and tears of joy. And, most importantly, the one thing that makes this group true players of the klezmer genre is their history of performing for festivals, concerts, weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvoth, and life-cycle events for thousands carrying the torch of a tradition and cultural heritage spanning centuries.
The Austin Klezmorim have made several landmark recordings and performed to the largest audiences ever in Texas klezmer history. The group’s recordings, Bubba’s Waltz, East of Odessa, and Texas Klez are receiving extensive airplay throughout the world.
Will travel up to 3000 miles.
