This is the third or fourth time they have played at our art fest or culture fest. Each time has been wonderful. The music is terrific and very dancible (is that word?). We received lots of compliments about the group from our visitors. We will have them play at our future fests. It was simply great.
Our Synagogue in Springfield, Mo was fortunate to have this fantastic Klezmer Band play at our annual fundraiser. The fundraiser is our Temple Israel Artfest, and band provided a short concert for the event! They were great and everyone loved the music selection. They will be coming back again this year -- you don't want to miss out!

I cannot say enough praise about our wonderful experience that my husband and I had with our violinist, Allison, working through gigsalad.
She was the best! From start to finish, everything was discussed in a clear, timely and professional manner. On the wedding day, she arrived on time, played beautifully and even stayed playing longer than it was expected. She is a super nice person, and everyone loved her! She added a true touch of class to our wedding with our song selection and added hers to it as well. It was unbelievable! Everyone was so impressed...She is truly talented and one of the best violinists I have ever heard!
I would definitely advise anyone to go through Gigsalad. They deal with true professionals and handle every small detail in a clear and direct way. No hidden fees or surprises in the end. I greatly recommend thier service and especially Allison as your violinist.
We were so lucky to have found and booked Ozarks Klezmer Orkestr for our Synagogues 10th anniversary event. They made our celebration so festive and celebratory by adding playing the traditional sounds of our roots. Andrew was a pleasure to work with in planning the event. We look forward to using them again.
