Last night I played with the KlezKidz at Temple Beth Am for Simchat Torah, a joyous celebration of the completion of the annual reading of the Torah. People danced in the seven hakafot or circles to our music with Torah scrolls. Klezmer music fits in great at all simchas (happy occasions)!
The KlezKidz is a wonderful multi-generational klezmer band directed by Wendy Marcus with arrangements by Shawn Weaver. Here we are playing for Hanukah 2007 at University Village. If you look closely you might recognize a few people in the band.
