We’re performing with Linda Tillery at the Oakland Paramount on December 11th, 2016. It’s an evening of music from the era of the Black Panthers featuring the Oakland Symphony, Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, Linda Tillery, and us! We play a few tunes in the concert and then rock out klezmerliciously in the Paramount lobby after the concert.
We’re gonna pack the whole band in and take over the entire restaurant. Come on down for some blintzes and freilachs…
It’s time again for us to rock out some old-world love in front of 3000 people at the Oakland Paramount! This year’s concert is “Sinatra Style” so we’re gonna take it back to Frank’s Yiddish roots. Plus some other fun stuff…
Last year’s performance was cancelled due to protests. This year, let’s take to the streets peacefully and joyously to the sounds of klezmer!
They don’t mention us by name, but I’m sure everyone reading National Geographic knows exactly who they are talking about:
“From my house to that end of the lake it’s mostly a downhill roll, past the Ethiopian restaurants, the Korean barbecue houses, the fried-chicken-sandwich place that uses ironing boards for sidewalk tables, the Middle Eastern grocery that sells baba ghanoush and grass-fed beef burgers, the old funeral home with its entry sign translated into Vietnamese, and the rehabbed art deco movie palace where I once watched an African-American church diva wind up the annual holiday concert by singing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” in Yiddish, accompanied by a Klezmer band.”
