SOLD OUT – Klezmer Rebs unplugged/acoustic concert on Labour Day

All SOLD OUT. Thanks for your support.

Come spend your Labour Monday afternoon listening to a live and unplugged performance with the Klezmer Rebs at the intimate Mana Little Theatre in Plimmerton.

 Reb David says the venue offers the band the opportunity to play two sets with some of their slower, sweeter and more poignant songs,  as well as revisiting the classic Klezmer Rebs repertoire of yiddish klezmer, ethnic folk, Roma, Ladino and quirky Rebs originals.

The quaint Mana Little Theatre is a lovely little venue, with just 49 seats available. Book early as it is likely to sell out. Door sales may not be available.

So join David, Rose, Urs, Rob, Jonathan, Amanda and new violinist Alex for a special afternoon with the Klezmer Rebs.

Book on line at https://www.trybooking.com/nz/book/event?eid=178  Seats are $22.50 waged, $17.50 unwaged.

Klezmer Rebs at Newtown Festival Sunday 4 March @11.20am, Emmett Street stage

It’s Newtown Festival time again, and yes, the Klezmer Rebs are back again.  How many times now? Must be almost our 10th appearance at Newtown Festival Faire day, fresh from monster performances at the Auckland Folk Festival.

Get there early, as Newtown is crammed with punters and it does take some time to get from one street to another.

Hear Rose, Rob, Emma, David and everything muso Amanda performing a set on the Songs from the Old Country stage – Emmett Street – from 11.20 am- 12.00pm.

And it’s free of course! Oy!
