"The Nudniks" Klezmer musical presentation at my synagogue, Congregation Beth El in Edison , N.J. , was a huge success. It was my wedding anniversary and the Klezmer musicians went out of their way to make it one of the most pleasurable celebrations my wife and I have had. Not only are they great musicians but they also offer a history of Klezmer as part of the program. I recommend you use these warm and talented musicians for your next event. The music brought tears to my eyes as I remembered my younger days growing up in a European household.

On behalf of Congregation Sons of Israel, Manalapan, N.J., I want to thank you and your band for the most inspiring, moving performance. It was truly such a delight. The music was so wonderful, children and adults alike were dancing to the beautiful music. It was also really nice to hear the stories behind the music and the history of Klezmer. Thank you so much for making our program a wonderful success.
I'm looking forward to having your band back at a future date. We'll be in touch.
We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to you and your band for your most informative lecture and delightful musical presentation to the residents at The Pointe in Livingston, NJ. The music was so inspiring, that some of the 90 residents present began dancing. As if that were not enough Jerry, your comments and interesting anecdotes about the individual musical selections really added a special dimension to the program.
The totally professional physical appearance of the band, including the bandstands, and the quality of their musicianship was outstanding. I think that it will be a long time before our residents stop commenting about the wonderful evening you gave us.
