Album Notes
The KlezBros, performing since 1993 in and around Salt Lake City, are keeping klezmer music alive and well in the Mountain West. The klezmer revival, dating back to the 1970's, has taken hold in Utah.

The Yiddish word 'klezmer' comes from two Hebrew words, 'kli' and 'zemer', meaning instrument or vessel of song. First and foremost, klezmer is Jewish wedding music. It is also performed at other simchas (joyous events) such as bar/bat mitzvahs, and for the festive Jewish holidays of Simchat Torah, Hanukkah and Purim.
Jews and non-Jews alike enjoy listening to the KlezBros, as we play music of Harry Kandel, Abe Schwartz, Dave Tarras, Giora Feidman, et.al., as well as original music, written by Steve Keen.
Klezmer music, originally associated with the instrumental music of the Eastern European Jewish community, is strongly influenced by local cultures, and constantly evolving. The music continually takes on new dimensions, through the use of non-traditional instruments, and the creative integration of atypical styles.

The KlezBros continue in that tradition.

David, clarinetist and founder, started The KlezBros in 1993, twenty years after leaving the hills of New Jersey for the mountains of Salt Lake City. Playing the clarinet since he was nine, his classical and jazz training set the table for what became his passion, klezmer. David's active involvement in Salt Lake's Jewish community, both with the synagogue (Congregation Kol Ami) and Jewish Community Center, set up opportunities for the KlezBros that continue to be developed right up to the present.

Steve is an original member of The KlezBros, developing the group in 1993 with David. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, he found his way to Utah in 1971. Along with the accordion, Steve is an accomplished jazz pianist and bassist. His musical acumen is demonstrated in several compositions that can be heard on our CD. Steve's other passions include photography, wheel-thrown pottery and massage therapy.
