Imagine traveling to a different world. A place where from the streets you could hear the sounds of singing and dancing Hasidic Jews mingling with those of traveling Gypsy caravans. Where Romanian musicians leading a wedding procession through cobblestone streets blend with Russian folk musicians playing their songs with all the intensity of modern punk rock. Not just a bygone fantasy or bizarre internet video mashup, this is what the Fleet Street Klezmer Band create every time they play. A place where spirits ride on waves of wine and song, and fellowship speaks all languages.
Fleet Street Klezmer Band is an acoustic band comprised of the following:
Victoria Kostenko - Violin Shlomo Kostenko - Guitar, Bass, Oud, Voice
Matthew Vorhies - Accordion Cecilia Rinn - Bellydance
Za’Nyah Zi - Bellydance
This is our first, full-length CD. All tracks on the project were recorded live in the historic Ahavath Beth Israel synagogue in Boise, using a single microphone (Audio Technica AT4033) direct to digital through a Focusrite preamp and A/D converter. After experimenting with different methods of recording, the band felt that the "vintage" single-mic style best captured how the band sounds as a whole.
FSKB performs at numerous gigs and events throughout the Treasure Valley, and would definitely be interested in talking to you about playing at your next event. For booking information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
