Exciting and entertaining, Chai For All plays jazz-tinged klezmer, Old World Yiddish folk and New World Yiddish theatre songs, on a magnificent musical journey from the haunted Central and Eastern European shtetls, through the dimly-lit basement bars of tango-crazed Buenos Aires, to Second Avenue in swinging New York. Impassioned female vocals lead the party, against a joyous backing of violin, trumpet, guitar and percussion.
'Great night tonight at The Rope Walk enjoying 'Chai For All'. If you get a chance to see them you are guaranteed not only great musicianship but some good banter with the audience between numbers from the lead singer, well worth spending the time in their company.'
Mike, audience member
