Over the past 16 years, we've played hundreds of weddings across the USA. We're the West-Coast's #1 klezmer wedding band and one of the most virtuosic, professional, experienced, jewish-music-and-more bands in the country. 

 

For weddings, Kugelplex acts 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 horas, 60's soul music, dance instruction, old-world marching processions, DJing, and much more. From solo accordion to 12-musician mega party band with dancers.

The band can rock the party unamplified – wild acoustic music in the tradition of the old-world shtetl. We are also expert sound and visual technicians and can work with you to design one-of-a-kind, high-end musical experiences.

 

We lead you through a process of planning the perfect music throughout the entire event, so the flow of the sound design supports the energy, beauty and depth of each moment of the day.

Depending on date/location/details, the ensemble can be surprisingly affordable or shockingly expensive! It's always worth giving us a call and we'll do our best to finagle an option that fits your vision and budget.
