      Kugelplex is California’s rockin’-est purveyor of klezmer and old-world party music. Formed in 2001, the group plays wild, soulful dance music at weddings, concerts and festivals throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles and beyond. We’ve performed with Joan Baez, the Oakland Symphony, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir and Frank London (founder of the Klezmatics) and many other great artists. For weddings, Kugelplex can act as expert ritual facilitators, helping plan your event every step of the way. From tish to toasts, the group plays in a variety of configurations and styles — chamber music, cocktail jazz, swing, latin, wild dancing, beautiful horas, dance instruction, DJing… Jason Ditzian (clarinet/manager) is a wind instrumentalist who performs on single reeds, double reeds, flutes, and jews harps. He has composed and performed numerous works for dance, movie and theater. Jason plays with many Bay Area ensembles, including Charming Hostess and Lord Loves a Workingman. Dan Cantrell (accordion/saw) has been focused on the study of folk and popular music from Eastern Europe, as well as composing for film dance, and theatre. He has composed music for over thirty films, several plays, a variety of dance pieces and other eclectic performance events, winning an Emmy. Dan’s extensive group of collaborators includes recording with Tom Waits, touring with Joanna Newsom and guesting with the San Francisco Symphony. For three years he composed and recorded the soundtrack for Cartoon Network’s Misadventures of Flapjack. David Rosenfeld (mandolin/violin/badchan) is a multi-instrumentalist, ethnomusicologist, poet, dancer, visual artist, composer and creator of performance. Having completed a BA in studio art at UC Davis and an MA in music composition at Mills College, David is now following a carefully planned-out career as a spontaneous improviser. He has accompanied hundreds of dance classes on guitar, piano, and percussion, and is an experienced leader of klezmer dancing. Eugene Warren (bass) is the busiest man in Bay Area jazz, playing with countless groups. He has studied both Jazz and Classical Bass at UCSF. Michael Pinkham (percussion) is a groovilcious drummer who plays with many groups, including New Monsoon and the Lagos Roots Afrobeat Ensemble. Jewlia Eisenberg (vocals/lay cantor)
