Next@19th, the South Florida Jewish Culture Meetup and the Chai Wavers of Temple Solel are joining forces to present a special evening featuring The Chai Notes, a hip Klezmer band new to town. Unique to the band is their "hybrid" blends of Klezmer/Jewish music with classic hits from the American Repertoire - for example, a fusion of Oseh Shalom together with Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive, Brown Eyed Girl played in a Klezmer Bulgar, James Brown's I Feel Good with a Fiddler On The Roof medley, and other hybrids of famous American tunes with songs from Jewish liturgy and songs from the Yiddish Theater as well as Klezmer standards. Instrumentation for the ensemble is also innovative from the traditional Klezmer instrumentation creating a very new and interesting sound, featuring instruments such as: chromatic and diatonic harmonica, melodica, accordion, zampona/moseno and other indigenous Andes wind instruments, Latin cajon/percussion, clarinet/soprano sax, piano, 6-string bass, and female vocals. Tickets are $18 in advance at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/289295 or by phone at 800-838-3006 and $25 at the door. Refreshments available.
