Here's a little info on a New Year's Eve party we're putting on at Makor. If you could mention in on the blog we'd appreciate it.

Dear Friends, Colleagues, all

I'm writing to invite you to our New Year's Bash at Makor! (Dec. 31st)

Aaron Alexander's Midrash Mish Mosh at 9PM
Aaron, David Licht - drums, Frank London - Trumpet, Merlin Shepherd - clarinet, Greg Wall - saxophone, Alex Kontorovich - clarinet/saxophone, Dan Blacksburg - trombone, Jay Vilnail - guitar, Mark Rubin - bass

Frank London's Klezmer Brass All-Stars at 10PM

a Klezmer Jam Session around 10:45 or 11 (bring your instruments!)

and then The Boys of Balagan Boogaloo w/DJ Shotnez take over at 11:30 into the morning.

There will be an open beer & wine bar from 10 - 12 (free with entry) and free champagne at midnight. Upstairs there will be a showing of the film White Heat, poetry readings (slams?) and a chance to win a trip to Fiji (whoo hoo!)

Advanced discount tickets are available for Klez Kamp or Klez Kanada attendees (thru Aaron or Frank).
Tickets at the door are $75 pp
Advance are $65 pp or $100 per couple.

Advance w/Klez Kamp or Kanada attendee status - $50 pp.

Hope to see you there!!
We can't make it, but that's a great lineup. So, if you're going to attend a New Year's party in the city, skip the Ball and check out some interesting Jewish music instead.
