Klezmatics, The

Also known as Klezmatics

Short biography of Klezmatics, The: The Klezmatics emerged from the multicultural churn of New York's East Village in the late '80s to become one of the leading standard bearers of the ongoing [i]klezmer[/i] revival. Legend has it that the band's founding members -- violinist Alicia Svigals, bassist Dave Lindsay, clarinetist Rob Chavez -- met in 1985 after reading an ad in the [i]Village Voice[/i] looking for anyone interested in playing klezmer. The threesome soon added veteran Klezmer trumpeter Frank London, singer Lorin Sklamberg and others and was soon putting an adventurous new, post-punk spin on traditional Yiddish music.

Current members:
- Frank London (trumpet/composer)
- David Licht (drums)
- Paul Morrissett (bass, tsimbl)
- Lorin Sklamberg (voice/accordion)
- Matt Darriau (wind instruments/composer)
- Lisa Gutkin (violin)

Former members:
- Alicia Svigals (violin)
- David Krakauer (clarinet)
- Margot Leverett (clarinet)
- Rob Chavez (clarinet)
- Dave Lindsay (bass)
