She'Koyokh Klezmer Ensemble
“Britain’s best klezmer and Balkan music band” (Songlines), have toured extensively in Europe and the UK and recorded for BBC television and radio. Winners of the 2008 International Jewish Music Festival prize, this reputable band heralds a decade of experience playing at weddings and barmitzvahs as well as appearing at prestigious venues such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, London’s Southbank Centre, and Jewish festivals in Munich and Krakow.
They perform a diverse repertoire of Eastern European Jewish and Balkan music ideal for listening and dancing. They offer an ensemble between four and seven musicians and can provide a dance caller to show your guests some of the traditional dances.
"We have worked with together since 2002, booking them for weddings, barmitzvahs, private parties, gallery openings, graduation ceremonies and festivals. We highly recommend them as a group of excellent musicians who always deliver the highest standard of musical entertainment. They have built up a superb reputation as one of the UK's finest bands for Jewish and non-Jewish events and are fully reliable and committed to each performance".
Geraldine Auerbach MBE, Jewish Music Institue, London.
"Not only did we think you were fantastic (we already knew that) but so did all our guests. Enthusiasm for your music was top of the talk on the day and has featured in all the feedback since. My mother, who was brought up with klezmer music, thought you were the business. She is 81 this year and hasn't dance like that in ages".
Ian Rosmarin (Groom).
"Thank you for playing so brilliantly at our wedding. You really made the day. I will never forget that wild and frenzied first dance! Or being hoisted onto chairs and thrown around. You played really beautifully in the ceremony too. Everyone commented on the music and how much they enjoyed hearing you play. It also meant a great deal to Dave's family who really appreciated you bringing a Jewish feel to an otherwise secular wedding day – and one that made everyone (regardless of religion) enjoy themselves, feel included and get carried away with the music."
Bizz and Dave (Bride and Groom).
