I'm With The Band!
Yes! Sat in with the Nahalat Shalom Community Klezmer Band for the first time Sunday. What a hoot! Great music, great people! No, the 5-string banjo is not a traditional klezmer instrument, although tenor banjo sort of is. Nevertheless, I think I fit right in, mostly playing the "chuck" part of "boom-chuck" (that is, rhythm, not melody). You can watch and listen to Sirba, one of the tunes we newbies learned, on this clip. Before you click: turn your volume way up, and make room to dance!
