Yiddish Republik w/ Shicky Gnarowitz

Come enjoy some terrific klezmer tunes at the Press Club.   From YR' web site:

We love the vast repertoire of Eastern European and Central European music that inspires Klezmer musicians, but we also are entranced by the inventive improvisations of Jewish musicians jamming with early jazz and blues musicians, resulting in early Jazz era music that is still relevant today.  So we could, if pressed, describe our sound as “early jazz age/European cafe/eclectic Klezmer/Yiddish theater.  Our repertoire, played by our six piece acoustic band consisting of vocals, guitar, accordion, violin, viola, clarinet, and in some songs, trumpet and mandolin,  includes American Jazz Age songs, songs from Yiddish theater of New York in the 1920’s (a precursor to modern Broadway musicals), songs from Eastern Europe, songs of Moorish/Ladino Spain, and Edith Piaf and other French artists.   Our vocalist sings in  English, Yiddish, French, and Ladino.  We like to say, imagine a small nightclub in Budapest in 1938 with an international audience, and that is what youmight hear when you encounter Yiddish Republik.  Our music is great to listen and to dance to.

    Sorry everyone. I'm not very good at small talk. I apologize for my big subject matter.

    I have to agree with Daniel about Yiddish Republik. Ironic that the only person who needed amplification was the one who didn't get any. Speaking of Shicky Gnarowitz, here's the website of their guest banjo/zitherist: www.markortonmusic.com. Dude's a total player!

    Lousy. They were out of tune with each other which is like nails on chalkboard to my ears. Some were flat, some were sharp, but the group was never in tune. The intro band was much, much better. Also: never use microphones and amps except for voice in such a small place!

    Some info about the venue and event. It's a small venue, with a few small tables. I will likely not be able to get there till 7:30 or so. I will try to reserve spaces, but there's no way to guarantee seating will be available for any of us. Just to be perfectly clear: RSVPing does not guarantee you a seat, so getting there early if at all possible is the best strategy. If you can get there earlier and secure a table, I would appreciate it.
