Klezmer in a small line-up: festive and melancholic, but always exuberant repertoire, consisting of klezmer en related styles. Apart from concerts, the program is fit for parties and receptions and can be adapted to taste and situation. Usually, the performance is unamplified and therefore flexible in location.

On large-scale occasions the line-up of clarinet/accordion can be extended with double bass, violin and a singer.
