The Maxwell Street Klezmer Band is the top of its craft in Jewish and Russian music—but they’re equally comfortable playing Swing and Big Band, classic Rock ‘n’ Roll, Motown, Latin, and Contemporary. They play with enthusiasm and keep the dance floor full--but your guests won't have to go into the foyer to talk!
They have played in Carnegie Hall as well as hundreds of weddings and bar mitzvahs. The band has five recordings including a Hanukkah CD, "Eight Nights of Joy," with Rabbi Joe Black.
“The Maxwell Street Klezmer Band…a joyous celebration of music that was—and fortunately, still is.”
-Studs Terkel, Author
“These are fine musicians…they care about the music. And when they care—I care.”
-Theodore Bikel, Actor, Singer, Entertainer

We were so happy that we chose to work with Maxwell Street for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. Alex and Lori were very friendly and accommodating - working with us to find the perfect klezmer, classical, and jazz selections for our wedding. Alex is an amazingly versatile musician - playing Jewish, Russian, and classical melodies with equal grace and ease. Our guests were very impressed with and touched by the music - we only wish we had had more time to listen to it ourselves. Thank you for working so hard to provide the beautiful soundtrack on our wedding day!Sent on 06/28/2011
