Klezperanto: With solid klezmer roots, spectacular technical virtuosity, and a wry sense of humor, Ilene Stahl and an all-star line-up of Boston's best musicians re-groove traditional klezmer and Mediterranean melodies, rip up Romanian surf tunes, cover cop show themes and cumbias, slay a few standards, and burnish it all to a funky finish. Since 1999, the six-piece instrumental band has delivered irresistible dance music from everywhere except your cousin's bar mitzvah. Klezperanto's fans know: It's No Hora Show!
The Feldons: The Feldons Mod Rock and Soul Review perform a hard-hitting mix of 60's garage rock and soul music, as well as newer songs inspired by the genre. The band presents a broad swath of obscure music from the rock and roll dustbin, revamped and rearranged for a soul band lineup. We also play songs from our friends, and write one of our own once in a while too. The Feldons do our damnedest to recreate the bare knuckle rock and soul of an era when mod fashion was NOW, bands bubbled up out of basements, and people played like their lives depended it. Discover the joy of music you didn't realize you were missing. Come dig fresh, old school sound of THE FELDONS.
