“Tight delivery, responsive playing and creative improvisation … this is not the first time anyone has pushed the boundaries of klezmer, but I have not heard anything quite like this …” 4**** – (Songlines)
“Prepare to dance till it nearly does you in” (Alan Raw – BBC Radio)
Over the last few years, Leeds’ based klezmer/Balkan beats/gypsy jazz bohemians Tantz have taken the UK world/roots music scene apart with their full-on musical attack on audiences across the length and breadth of this nation. With awesome musical chops, an energy not seen since punk rock’s halcyon days and ability to turn a gentle world music festival crowd into a heaving, pogoing mosh-pit, there’s something special about this band that manages to touch almost everyone who hears and sees them live, no matter what music they’re into.
And our very own local crewe Soznak are also well known for their very own take on hard hitting dance floor wonders....as with may gigs here , get your trainers on and leave your inhibitions at the door.
