The Jews Brothers Band 20th Anniversary tour.

The Jews Brothers Band (JBB) are an all-star band featuring founder and leader, Hershal Hersher on accordion, ace picker Nigel Gavin on mandolin and guitar, Peter Scott on double bass, one-armed saxophonist and percussionist Neill Duncan (ex Six Volts and the Spines) and chanteuse extraordinaire Linn Lorkin on lead vocals and melodica (Linn’s song Family at the Beach was voted Best Kiwi Summer Song in a recent New Zealand Radio Listeners' Poll).

JBB created a sensation when it first hit the local scene in early 1995. What was this sound? And what was this ‘klezmer’ they were playing? For Brooklyn raised founder and bandleader Hershal, this music was a return to his roots, to the music brought to New York by the Eastern European Jews.

JBB’s wild, toe-tapping, hand-clapping repertoire soon had audiences circle-dancing or bopping to the grooves of the ‘best swing band in the land’. Expect also gypsy ‘hot-club’, schmaltzy waltzes and daring vocal harmonies on this 20th anniversary tour of a very special band.

"...messy, loose as a goose, over the top and simply wonderful... Jewish grunge on a roll!" - Real Groove Magazine NZ
