Review for Ezekiel's Wheels Klezmer Band: 
In April, Boston-based Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band, winners of both the Audience Choice Award as well as City Winery Prize for best klezmer ensemble at the 2012 International Jewish Music Festival, will embark on a tour of the East Coast. With backgrounds in classical music, jazz, improvisation, and folk traditions from all over the world, these five musicians offer an engaging contemporary perspective on traditional Jewish music.  

Internationally-recognized klezmer ensemble Ezekiel’s Wheels brings passion, virtuosity, and contagious energy to every performance. The Wheels improvise with the intimacy of chamber music and the intensity of a rowdy dance band. They are equally at home performing on subway platforms, where they cut their teeth playing for the morning rush hour, as on the stage of the International Jewish Music Festival, where judges heralded them as “a true musical democracy." Additional information about the group, as well as music and video, can be found at www.ewklezmer.com
