Hi Rebs fans Have a listen to our latest video snippet of Russian Sher, from our performance a few months ago at Plimmerton’s Mana Little Theatre. It features our new violinist Alex Hills, and was put together by our multi talented Amanda Maclean
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.
Yes for a limited time the Klezmer Rebs band are on sale – and what a deal! Just contact the Balabous (the big boss) Reb David and hondle with him. We take shekels, shmeleros, bitcoin, incense sticks, stick insects – whatever you offer, we’ll take it! And in exchange we’ll play for you some genuine kiwi klezmer music that will get you shaking your tuchases!
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!
