ABOUT THE KLEZ DISPENSERS A full force of creativity, The Klez Dispensers are juicy, fresh and daring. They've been dishing up their signature state-of-the-art, swinging American-style klezmer since their college days. Audiences can't get enough of their impeccable arrangements, inspiring improvisations, and engaging repertoire from the early years of klezmer, as well as exciting original compositions. Individually, each Dispenser is an accomplished musician contributing skill, personality and artistry to the group. The blend is tremendous! The Klez Dispensers, an eight-piece ensemble comprising clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, violin, piano, bass, drums and vocals, was formed in 1998 and performs throughout the year at festivals, concerts, and simchas. The band has played at Satalla, Makor and CBGBs in New York, as well as more far-flung locales such as London. In 2000 the ensemble recorded its first CD, Indispensable, followed by New Jersey Freylekhs in 2004. The band's latest album, Say You'll Understand, featuring Susan Watts on vocals, was released in 2008.
