If your Mom threw out your Klez Dispensers, don’t despair.
You can find them on the Morristown Green at lunchtime today, July 22, 2014.
They will be there for an hour, starting at 12:30 pm, courtesy of Morris Arts and the Mayo Performing Arts Center. It’s the third installment of the Music Beyond Borders summer concert series. Here’s a taste of what the hosts are presenting:
Described as “juicy, fresh and daring,” the Klez Dispensers have 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. Each Dispenser is an accomplished musician contributing skill, personality and artistry to the group. The blend is tremendous! This eight piece ensemble, comprising clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, violin, piano, bass, drums and vocals, was formed in 1998 and performs widely throughout the year including at venues such as Grounds for Sculpture, Satalla, Makor and CBGBs in NY and London. In 2000, the ensemble recorded its first CD, Indispensable, followed by New Jersey Freylekhs in 2004. Its latest album, Say You’ll Understand, featuring Susan Watts on vocals, was released in 2008. www.klezdispensers.com.
We’ve never seen the Klez Dispensers, but their name is so clever that we suspect they will deliver a sweet show.
Rounding out this year’s series is the Peter Smith School of Irish Dance on Aug. 5.
