I got a gig once from my student's dad to play for his holiday party at the historic Giando on the Water for a bunch of anesthesiologists of various faiths; he happened to be Jewish and wanted something klezmeresque, if not just straight-up klezmer. So I gathered together three-fourths of this fine group, two of whom I know from this other fine group (and long since then, I started this fine activity with the third guy), who brought some klezmer tunes they knew, some original tunes they wrote for the first aforementioned fine group, and I wrote this little collection of pseudo-klezmerishesque-folksy-whatnot for the same occasion.
