The Midwest's Premier Klezmer Band Since 1983
Why is a Maxwell Street Klezmer party different from all other parties?
Kids will be engaged and having fun—and the music is in tune with the spirit of a bar or bat mitzvah celebration.
Your child gets to share the band's spirit, professionalism and good taste with their family and friends without sacrificing the fun of what a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party should be.
Maxwell Street Klezmer Band brings the same highest standard of musicianship, deep commitment and infectious fun to your simcha that we have brought to Carnegie Hall and festivals across the US and Europe.
- We are happy to work in tandem with DJs, alternating with them to provide uninterrupted music and entertainment.
Maxwell Street elevates the energy and fun of your celebration!
"We had the Maxwell Street Klezmer band which was terrific. Ten years from now no one will remember the food but a live band—that is something to remember."
