ISLE of KLEZBOS celebrates 20 years! This soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-gal ensemble ('sister band' to NYC's Metropolitan Klezmer) has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998. Led by drummer Eve Sicular, the group approaches Yiddish musical traditions with loving irreverence, deepest respect, creative chemistry & stratospheric solos -- as heard from CBS Sunday Morning to PBS to The L Word. Enjoy dance & trance tunes from rollicking to ethereal, re-grooved 2nd Ave theater classics, vintage soundtrack tango, and genre-expanding originals. Our debut at IMA.

"Isle of Klezbos tests the elasticity of the genre" - The New Yorker
"Cutting Edge Klezmer" - New York Magazine
"Despite the cute moniker, the outfit is no joke... rambunctious sound mines classic swing and tango as well as traditional Eastern European Jewish klezmer" - Chronogram

20th anniversary Spring Tour, featuring our quartet special:
Debra Kreisberg - clarinet & alto saxophone
Pam Fleming - trumpet
Shoko Nagai - acordion & piano
Eve Sicular - drums |bandleader
