South Coast Simcha Band
Classic American Klezmer
2003 RenZone Music
Like the title says, this is traditional, classic klezmer. Lead clarinet and fiddle lead the band in familiar tunes like Odessa Bulgar and Russian Sher. Most recognizable will be the medley of songs in the “must have” South Coast Hora. Hava Nagilah, Siman Tov U’Mazel Tov and more flow quick and fast.
Led by Renah and Keith Wolzinger the eight piece band are all solid musicians, keeping the feel family friendly and fun. The album is all-instrumental, mixing slower songs like Der Gasn Nigun with faster ones like Freilach in Sing. The speed is not raucous like the Klezmatics, The bouncy oompa keeps smooth clarinet led beat moving.
