Rooted firmly in traditional 19th and 20th century Klezmer, the music of the Jews of Eastern Europe, T-Klez plays a full gamut of klezmer repertoire. T-Klez returns to JHMOMC, this time playing a Chanukah holiday concert. Enjoy standard tunes to sing along with, as well as melodies rarely heard, such as a 17th century Italian setting of Maoz Tzur, and a Dutch liturgical melody played on Shabbat Chanukah.
Based in Teaneck, New Jersey, the members of T-Klez are veterans of stage and community celebrations. David Licht, is the founding percussionist of the world-famous Klezmatics, anda member of the legendary groups Shockabilly and Bongwater. He is a sought after musician who has played all over the world. Psachya Septimus, accordion, has appeared with stars such as Avrohom Fried, Eitan Katz,Soul Farm, and Yehuda Green. Dobe (Dena) Ressler, clarinet, has taught a history of klezmer music at KlezKamp, and at Yiddish New York. She occasionally reviews music in both English and Yiddish.
T-Klez’s performances are fun and educational and their dance sets can rock the house!
