New Jersey Freylekhs
The Klez Dispensers, formed in 1998, have a diverse repertoire spanning traditional klezmer, a wide variety of jazz styles, and original compositions. They are currently a seven-piece band, comprising clarinet, trumpet, violin, saxophone, piano, bass and drums. The Klez Dispensers have performed at the New Jersey Folk Festival, the Sedgewick Theater in Philadelphia, Tonic's Klezmer Brunch, the Supper Club and CBGB's in New York, the National Theater Summer Stage in London, and perform frequently at venues in the tri-state area. In 2000, the group released their first album, 'Indispensable' (now sold out). Their new album, 'New Jersey Freylekhs', was released in early 2004, and won the 2006 Just Plain Folks Music Award in the category of Best Klezmer Album.
