$400 - $3000 per job
Jazmer, founded in 1995 by lead vocalist Shirlee Todd, offers a fresh and creative approach to Jewish and American music. Our ensemble goes out as a 5 to 7 piece band, but can go out as a quartet or a duo where we play and improvise on melodies from Eastern Europe (klezmer, Yiddish, Chassidic)and the Middle East (Israeli, Sephardic). But it wouldn't be Jazmer without touches of jazz and other American influences bridging the Old World with the New.


Jazmer has been bringing great music and a personal touch to Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties, weddings, anniversaries and birthdays since 1995. Here are some of what we can offer you.

Jazmer's show was far more than we promised in our publicity. You and the ensemble have a unique style and stage presence that set you apart, just as a diamond is set apart from a zircon.
Your group's appeal truly transcends lifestyles, bridging generations and transforming the audience into a group of admirers.
Bravo Shirlee and Jazmer for a marvelous and energetic performance!
