Bringing rock ‘n’ roll energy to the party music of Eastern European Jewry, Kugelplex plays wild, virtuosic dance tunes at concerts, festivals and weddings. They’ve performed with Joan Baez, the Oakland Symphony, the Klezmatics’ Frank London and Kitka, among other illustrious ensembles. And for this unique program they’re joining forces with Bay Area vocal legend Linda Tillery, whose 69th birthday celebration also marks her 50th year as an irreplaceable creative force on the Bay Area scene. Bringing together a capaciously creative cast, Kugelplex features Lila Sklar on violin and vocals, clarinetist Jason Ditzian, bassist Eric Perney, guitarist Max Baloian, percussionist Michael Pinkham and Dan Cantrell on accordion and saw. Join us for a klezmer old-world soul party.
