Mitzvah Klezmer – Jewish Traditional Band

Jewish Traditional Band in London

7 Piece Jewish Traditional Band in London

Award winning Mitzvah Klezmer Band embodies the new generation of Yiddish roots music. Serving up an exuberant and soulful cocktail of wedding songs and lamenting lullabies.

Swooping with panache through centuries of traditional Eastern European music, they preserve all the original heartfelt melodies, foot-stomping beats and echoes of a bygone era.

A firm feature on the London folk scene they play regularly at venues including Jamboree, JW3 and Green Note. They also have a wealth of experience playing for weddings, bar mitzvahs, dances and other parties and functions.

Testimonials

‘The Mitzvah Tanz band was an absolutely brilliant opening to our wedding
party. They got nearly everyone on their feet twirling round the room and everyone else clapping and stamping their feet. It really helped build a feeling of community and warmth that lasted the whole night. I would highly recommend them. They were easy to work with, accommodating, reliable and great fun to have around. If you want accessible Klezmer with a modern twist this band is for you!’
-Pete Fleischmann (Wedding, Dulwich)

‘Full of atmosphere! Their music takes you straight to the main stage, where youcan become part of the celebration of music and life!’
-Jiri Benda (Private Event- Bratislava, Slovakia)

I just wanted, rather belatedly, to say thank you – the band were wonderful and played exactly the music and the style that we wanted. Lots of people told me how wonderful they thought you were and I whole heartedly agree
with best wishes.
-Sylvia Rothschild (Bar Mitzvah, Orpington)
