Meet Klezmer-ish, four incredibly outward-looking classically trained musicians who met whilst playing with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
Drawing inspiration from the music of bygone travellers, the quartet explore the music of immigrants from various cultural backgrounds who left their homelands in pursuit of a different life. From rip-roaring klezmer and dynamic tango to their self-penned gypsy jazz, Klezmer-ish bring a trademark twist to whatever genre takes their fancy on a seamless musical journey, always on the move.
“Delightfully engaging, brilliant, highly skilled multi-instrumentalists…clearly very passionate about sharing with others the music they so clearly love”
(The Yorkshire Post)
“A complete and utter transportation to any cobbled, bohemian street in Eastern Europe…resplendent with quirky off-beats and pretty melodies”
“This multi-talented band certainly know how to let their hair down and put on a completely relaxed and informal performance, which the audience warmed to immediately”
(The Jewish Telegraph)
“A real box of delights, played with evident pleasure…hugely enjoyable freewheeling solos which showcase their dexterity and talent” ****
(Arts City Liverpool)
“Klezmerish by name, klezmerish by nature and definitely klezmerish in their music”
(Lopa Kothari, BBC Radio 3 “World on Three”)
“The excellent rapport [the musicians] had with each other was obvious”
(Clarinet and Saxophone Society Magazine)
“They evoke lonely streets, vast celebrations and back-room jamborees – often within one tune…Klezmer’ish don’t stick to the script. This isn’t a slavish recreation of tradition. They introduce wah-wah pedal, contemporary solos, tapping instruments and music stands, keeping the music as inventive, engaging, joyful and unpredictable as it would have been to American audiences 80 years ago.”

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.
Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue.
- All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
- Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
- Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
- If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email email@example.com
Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN 7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
