Kevara play Klezmer and East European music for dancing and listening, and we have an experienced caller so we can run ceilidh-type events with this style of music.
- What kind of events do you usually serve?Mostly functions for people who are not religious but want a different flavour music, or non-orthodox Jewish people seeking to reconnect with their heritage.
- Who are your previous clients?Mostly functions for people who are not religious but want a different flavour music, or non-orthodox Jewish people seeking to reconnect with their heritage.
- Do you have your own PA and lighting?Full PA and some lighting.
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?Yes.
- How much space do you require?Will depend on the line-up but can fit in quite a small space if required.
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?We are able to learn most thing by agreement :-)
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?We agree this with the client. 2 x 45 mins, 2 x 1 hour sets with a single break is common but we can play 3 hours straight, say for a ceilidh-type event where the band get a rest between tunes as the caller is explaining the next dance. We can discuss this and are keen to please the client.
We are normally a six-piece band but can include a wonderful Jewish singer if required. We can also provide smaller ensembles down to a duo.
We play many Klezmer standards, including Hava Nagila, Tanz Tanz Yiddelekh, Khosen Kalem Mazel Tov, and all the tunes necessary for a Jewish celebration. We can also do some celtic/ceilidh material for variety.
