Bar/Bat Mitzvah Raves

"Just want to say thank you again for the wonderful music and incredible energy you and the band brought to Nathan's bar mitzvah. We are still getting calls from friends and family telling us what a great time they had, esp. how much they loved the music. (The chocolate cake was a close second). The ultimate compliment came from 2 kids who have been to lots of bar and bat mitzvah parties, big fancy ones with DJs and dancers, lots of give aways, etc, all done with the belief that "kids love it." They both told Nathan and me and even wrote it in the guest book that "this was the best bar mitzvah I've ever been to. The music was the best!" High praise from tough critics!"

"Wow! Our boy was anxious if he would have fun and if his friends would have fun, but we hit a home run in that department! You really read the crowd, and he was able to see his group of friends up and having fun. We were all swept up in the joy of the music."

Mother of the Bar-Mitzvah boy

"All my friends are saying how much fun you guys were, and how you’re so much cooler than a DJ! Thanks for making my Bat Mitzvah so special.”

Emma C.

"Thank you!!! You absolutely ‘hit’ the tone and details we wanted for this party. We couldn’t be happier!"

"Klezmer never sounded so good! The sound was full, but not overpowering. It was just at the right volume level. People seemed to enjoy the mix of standards and ethnic music. The musicians added their own personality and joy to the mood. I couldn't be happier with having used them and will recommend them for other occasions. The music was perfect!"

Heidi S.

Mother of the Bat-Mitzvah girl

"The Maxwell Street musicians made our Bar Mitzvah party a real celebration. From adults to kids - everyone loved the Klezmer music as we danced, sang and enjoyed the lively, beautiful music. I believe having live music, with Jewish themes really ties in with the whole idea of a Bar Mitzvah celebration - so much better than recorded music and using DJs. The musicians were talented professionals who worked well together and with our guests. Thank you so very much and we will be calling you again for our next Simcha."

Susan and Steve V.

Parents of the Bar-Mitzvah boy

"It was spectacular! And I really mean it. You all were so outstanding I can’t even begin to tell you. Maxwell Street WAY exceeded my dreams for the event, and I already had high expectations!!!"

Billy K.

Father of the Bat-Mitzvah girl

"We LOVED everything about the party--and we got so much positive feedback from our guests! I was so happy with how everything went."

Mother of the Bar-Mitzvah boy

​"I write to thank you once again for your remarkable gift of inspired and inspirational performance. Our family, our synagogue, and the Jewish community of South Bend will long remember the excitement and pleasure engendered by your music, song, and dance. What an ineffable sensation of joy at the close of a wonderful day of celebration in honor of Elena! You will be in our hearts and thoughts for a long time to come; indeed for as long as we live. Thank you!"

Father of the Bat-Mitzvah girl

I just wanted to let you know that Jay's party was a smashing success! Everyone loved the band. We got an unbelievable number of compliments. From the older generation: they were so pleased that the sound level was conversation-friendly and they were especially delighted to see the young people dancing with the older folks. From my 10-year-old daughter: "This was more fun than a DJ." Bibi was lovely, Steve was so playful and fun AND the entire band was first-rate. Of course, the best comment of all (one we heard over and over) was, "this is what a Bar Mitzvah should be." We're still beaming. Thank you for making it easy, heimish, and fun!
