This Klezmer band, founded in 1983, brings a kaleidoscope of colors and moods and a spirit of fun to their performances. The combination of dance music, folk songs, theatre medleys and jazzy Yiddish pop music from the 1930's to the 1950's creates a multi-dimensional experience of America seen through immigrant eyes. Audiences of all ages and backgrounds are delighted by this band's high-energy performances that glow with warmth and humor.

They have played across America and Europe. In 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2007, the band performed in Germany, London, Munich, Fürth, Vienna, Amsterdam, Enschede and The Hague. In 1998, the band gave their debut performance at Carnegie Hall and at New York's Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center, where they returned for an encore performance in 2006.

They have appeared on the PBS programs "World Stage Chicago" and "Artbeat Chicago." One of their songs was featured in an episode of ABC's "Saving Grace." They have been featured annually on Network Chicago's (PBS) "Do It Yourself Hanukkah" television special. In 2004, one of their CD was voted "Best Jewish/Hebrew/Klezmer Album" by the indie Just Plain Folks 2004 music awards. In 2007, they were among 250 finalists out of over 5,000 contestants for NBC's America's Got Talent.
