Amsterdam  Klezmer  Band  


With their talented musicians, the Amsterdam Klezmer Band (AKB) is an energetic and poetic stage act that charms international audiences. Their refreshing approach to Klezmer and Balkan music transcends the traditional aspects of this music and results in a very lively mix of Eastern-European sound.

Their strength lies in their ability to appeal to a remarkably broad audience across all age groups; they play clubs or theatres, festivals, parties, weddings or formal functions. AKB can both fire up a crowd and create pure listening pleasure with the vibrancy of their playing. Their instrumental skills are complemented by the vocals of Alec Kopyt from Odessa and Job Chajes (also on saxophone).

Jasper de Beer – double bass, banjo
Job Chajes – alto sax, raps
Alec Kopyt – vocals, percussion
Gijs Levelt – trumpet
Joop van der Linden – trombone, percussion
Janfie van Strien – clarinet
Theo van Tol – accordion
