“The Vulgar Bulgars are a delightful and talented new Klezmer band. They play the old Klezmer tunes in fresh ways, and their humor is wonderfully goofy. I heard them in Charlottesville, Virginia, a town in which Yiddish is not quite the lingua franca, and they had their audience singing “Ot Azoi” and “Git Azoi!” (and dancing along, too) as if they had been doing it all their lives.”

“The Vulgar Bulgars showed us a rockin’ good time. They had the party jumping with their brand of Klezmer and had everyone dancing by the end of the evening. I’d recommend anyone give this group a try for their function.”

“The Vulgar Bulgars played at our wedding in September, 2003 (their first gig!) and were wonderful and amazing; they brought an incredible energy to both the ceremony and the reception. Their sound is lively, haunting and thrilling: old klezmer rhythms and melodies played with youthful exuberance; it was impossible not to dance and nearly everyone did. I would highly recommend them to anyone; I’m so glad they were part of our celebration.”

” Yesterday morning, I ran into John Meyer @ Temple Beth El, & we got to talking about your show on March 7th.  I LOVED IT!!!  I brought some pals from Shenandoah County who had never heard of Klezmer music & they were thrilled!  Am sending this email to you because I neglected to write afterwards & let you know just how great your concert was & to find out when/if you are returning to the the Harrisonburg area for another performance.  Next time Vulgar Bulgars play nearby I promise to bring in a  truck-load of friends!!!”

Thanks so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday! Having you guys there was so much fun! Everyone loved you and you did a fantastic job.

Also thanks for being flexible with the moving around and the confusing DJ transition.

I just wanted to let you know that you made the day really special for both me and Erika. I will recommend you very highly to anyone who asks.
