PRESENTED BY THE JCC ETHAN & GRETCHEN DAVIDSON MUSIC FESTIVAL
Golem is a rock-kelzmer band from New York City that is redefining Yiddish and Eastern European music, pushing tradition forward to the 21st century.

They are known for its virtuosic musicianship, theatricality, humor and fearless wild energy, combined with a boundless love of tradition. Golem is clearly “not your grandparents’ klezmer.” (NPR)

The band (Annette Ezekiel Kogan, Aaron Diskin, Jeremy Brown, Curtis Hasselbring, Taylor Bergren-Chrisman, Tim Monaghan) performs worldwide in clubs and festivals in the United States, France, Germany, Poland, Sweden and Mexico.

ALBUMS

  • Homesick Songs (2004)
  • Fresh Off Boat (2006)
  • Citizen Boris (2009)
  • Tanz (2014)

"Tanz" was released to great critical acclaim and was reviewed on the NPR program “Fresh Air.”

Golem’s music has been featured in several films and documentaries from the U.S., Germany and Russia, and most recently the band performed on an episode in season 4 of the hit television show, “Louie.”
