The Klezmatics will return once again to The Town Hall to perform an incredible evening of music with special guests. Since their emergence more than 25 years ago, the Grammy-winning Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music by making aesthetically, politically and musically enveloping recordings, inspiring future generations, creating a large body of work that is enduring, and helping to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a Jewish roots band, the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. Today, there are three original members still on their board. Their music is rooted in, but is not a strictly traditional variety of, the klezmer genre - and they are, without a doubt, the most successful proponents of klezmer music in the world. The Klezmatics music is instead, a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music and those already familiar with it.
