Never miss another 'Yiddish Twist Orchestra' show
Yiddish Twist Orchestra
"The band pays homage to the genius of Willy Bergman, the anonymous beatnik funkateer who got the slums and salons on both sides of the water dancing to a pounding Yiddish beat. Featuring twistneck guitarist Ben Mandelson, vocalist Natty Bo, sizzling Latin trombonist Paul Taylor and Hammond maestro Robin Harris.
"Clash of klezmer and Cuban... entertaining, varied, classy" The Guardian
"Verve, skill and humour... London's first world music" Songlines
"Surf rock guitar, jazzy horns, calypso, the twist and Jewish folk melodies... a gleefully maverick spirit" fRoots"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Yiddish Twist Orchestra hail from East London and include some of the most respected musicians in their field.
Under the guidance of trumpeter Lemez Lovas (Oi Va Voi, Shtetl Superstars) and twistneck guitarist Ben Mandelson (3 Mustaphas 3, Triaboliques) with support from Europe's retro king Natty Bo on vocals (Ska Cubano, Top Cats) and sizzling Latin trombone player Paul Taylor (Snowboy, Roberto Pla), their music pays homage to the genius and paranoia of Willy Bergman, the anonymous beatnik funkateer who got the slums - and salons - on both sides of the water dancing to that pounding Yiddish beat.
