David Chevan Klezmer Quartet @ Best Video

Best Video, 1843 Whitney Avenue, Hamden

I’m bringing a Klezmer quartet to Best Video on Thursday, December 9 from 7-9 pm. The group features Dana Astmann on accordion, Will Bartlett on clarinet (and occasionally sax) and David Sasso on mandolin. The repertoire pulls very heavily from Klezmer and early swing. This is the first time we’ll be playing in public, though we have been getting together on and off since early this summer. I feel that we’re beginning to put our own stamp on this material. Sometimes things are coming out straight Klezmer and sometimes it swings like crazy, and it never sounds the same twice—in a good way. Come raise a ruckus and shake your tuchus!!! Who knows? There may even be some special guests who pop in to join the group for a tune or two.
