"It was wonderful to hear Chicago's Maxwell Street Klezmer Band cut loose so exuberantly…(They) brought the audience to its feet, cheering its approval."
-John von Rhein, Music Critic, Chicago Tribune
Chicago’s Maxwell Street Klezmer Band plays lively Eastern European Jewish folk music that combines Old World melodies with Jazz Age rhythms and contemporary energy. Classical sophistication meets theatrical fun in an engaging performance filled with joy, soul, and humor. Steeped in rich traditions of Chicago jazz, a polished, horn-driven vitality gives Maxwell Street its distinctive sound.
