Meshugginah Klezmorim Launches 2010 Series

December 22, 2009 by  

The World Vibration Concert Series launches in 2010 with the klezmer music of Meshugginah Klezmorim in concert at 2 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Winchester Cultural Center Theater, 3130 S. McLeod Drive. The eclectic group of professional musicians brings its blend of “crazy jazz” to the series. Tickets for the concert are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and children ages 12 and younger.

Meshugginah Klezmorim means “crazy musicians” in Yiddish, which is a direct reflection of the personalities of the professional musicians that make up the group. These players of klezmer music have performed locally at the festivities for Israeli Independence Day, the Menorah lighting on Fremont Street with Mayor Oscar Goodman, citywide Hanukkah concerts, the Folk Life Festival and the City of Las Vegas Cultural Series at the Lloyd D. George U.S. Courthouse.

The band was brought together by violinist Lee Schreiber in 1991 and consists of D. Gause, clarinet; D.J. Sinai, keyboards and vocals; Brett Barnes, drums; and Irv Weinberger, guitar. As individuals, they have performed for such artists as Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Tim McGraw, Aretha Franklin and Andrea Bocelli, to name a few. Schreiber is a member of the Las Vegas Philharmonic and the Nevada Chamber Symphony as well as a violin player for numerous superstars. Gause is a professor of music at the College of Southern Nevada and plays clarinet for “Phantom of the Opera: The Las Vegas Spectacular” while Sinai is the music director for Temple Beth Shalom and Barnes and Weinberger have their master’s degrees from the University of Arkansas and University of Southern California, respectively.

Winchester Cultural Center has hosted musicians from all over the world through the World Vibration Concert Series during the last four years. Musicians from Brazil, Ireland, China, Thailand, Mexico and many other countries have brought their distinct rhythms to the Winchester stage. The series continues with Bhoutalow, or black scorpion, African music led by Toumany Kouvate at 2 p.m. Feb. 6.
