Rave Reviews


On behalf of the Hampshire Music Club’s Board of Directors and the Club members, I would like to thank you most heartily for your role in bringing together the Klezmer Group to perform for our annual “spring Fling” in June. We had a great audience – some were already fans of yours and to some your group was a new and delightful experience. A few even got up, joined hands and danced!
We learned a lot, too, about the background of this music, its origins, its language and the instruments used to play it. The presentation was a very nice blend of music and talk, which our audiences always appreciate. Please convey our thanks to the other members of the group. And thanks to you, too, Joe for sharing your talent with us as well. You are sure to see new fans attending future performances in the Valley, and I most likely will be among them. Best regards to all of the Klezmer Group. —Hampshire Music Club



Dear Amy and all of Klezamir,
We cannot thank you enough for playing at our wedding. We have received so many compliments regarding how awesome the band was. Everyone had so much fun. We really appreciate your attention to detail and knowledge regarding the best ‘flow’ of a wedding. The band was so much fun and the ceremony music was absolutely beautiful. We cannot thank you enough. You guys are AWESOME.

Dear Amy & Klezamir Band,
THANK YOU! Drew and I really can’t thank you enough for contributing to a wedding that felt like a great dream. Your music and spirit really created an atmosphere where our guests felt comfortable to let loose and have a rockin’ good time! The balance of Klezmer and Pop music was fantastic. Jim, thank you for learning ‘Into the Mystic’. You really should add that to your repertoire because it sounded incredible. We’re off to Italy for our honeymoon this afternoon. We hope you get to enjoy this amazing weather we’ve been having.
Thank you all again!!!!
Love, Amy & Drew

Dear Amy,
I’m just writing to tell you again you folks were magnificent. Everyone has come up to us and said how terrific the band was and let me say to you all – you made an already wonderful day just so much more magnificent with your spirit and your music. We just adored you!
If you have anyone who’s thinking of using you and they want a reference for how great you are, please give them our name and number. We would be honored to sing your praises.

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs

Hi Amy,
Thanks for all that you did to make Rachel’s Bat Mitzvah celebration so special. We had a great time dancing and many people made a point of commenting on how much they enjoyed your music and the dance lessons. I was pleased to see the kids dancing as much as they did! I’m sure I’ll be in touch again.

Hi Amy,
I can’t thank all of you enough. For us of course the band was wonderful, we knew this going in. Sara, like lots of these kids, struggled with having a band that played klezmer music and ‘that old rock’, her parents’ music that she assumed she wouldn’t know. Anyway, you guys got the kids dancing and totally engaged, it was truly wonderful, and Sara joyfully fessed-up that despite her anticipated no-DJ disappointment the party was great, and better than the DJ affairs. Thanks so much.

Amy and Klezamir,
You guys were fantastic. Truly, people keep calling, emailing and writing to say what a great time they had. Somehow, everyone felt like you were playing to their generation (at least some of the time!). So thank you again for making it as special as we had hoped, full of spirit and joy. All the best for a wonderful winter break!
