Saturday, January 26, 2019 • 20 Shevat 5779

DEADLINE TO BUY TICKETS:  JANUARY 18.   DEADLINE TO SUBMIT TEXT FOR TRIBUTE BOOK: JANUARY 11.  USE FORM BELOW.

In honor of Cindy Wetter: Return with us to the Lower East Side (recreated at CBH) for an evening of great music by The Isle of Klezbos, dancing, dining, drinking (cash bar) and kvelling.  

Cindy has dedicated two years of her life to making CBH a welcoming, caring community--much like she is herself.  Anything CBH threw at her, Cindy could handle, and did it with love, tact, and skill.  Let's show her how much we appreciate her by feasting her in the Jewish traditions she loves and showering her with tributes.

About the band:
ISLE of KLEZBOS (www.klezbos.com) approaches tradition with irreverence and respect, as demonstrated on their new CD, Isle of Klezbos: Live From Brooklyn. Based in NYC, this soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-women’s klezmer sextet has toured from Vienna to Vancouver, featuring neo-traditional repertoire from rambunctious to entrancing: re-grooved rollicks, mystical melodies, hard-charging Yiddish swing, ravishing retro tango, overlooked underscore gems, late Soviet-Jewish drinking songs, and genre-defying originals.

Formed by drummer/leader Eve Sicular, ISLE of KLEZBOS features alumnae of Juilliard, Eastman and Manhattan Schools of Music as well as Harvard and even Japan’s new music scene. Broadcast credits range from PBS to CBS Sunday Morning to The L Word, with commissions from artists such as Kiki Smith and Scissor Sisters, and musical theater projects including J. Edgar Klezmer: Songs from My Grandmother’s FBI Files.
