- Serving London
Shir is a London based Jewish music band providing quality music for special events. With Shir as your Wedding & Bar / Bat Mitzvah band in London you can't go wrong!
Shir - Shir is the "complete" traditional Jewish music group playing Klezmer, Israeli, Yiddish, Sephardi, Mizrahi, Ladino and Simcha instrumental, vocal and dance music that provides a spontaneous, energetic and soulful Jewish musical experience at any party or concert.
For the reception we provide: Simcha dancing, background for dinner, our speciality Israeli "led dancing" - which never fails to bring everyone onto the dance floor, and a disco to end the evening.
At weddings we provide: A warm traditional Jewish atmosphere with Chuppah music before, during (Chazzanut included), and after the ceremony, followed by music for the reception and after-party.
Formed in 1997 by Maurice Chernick the group has been offering quality Jewish music at concerts and charity events in the UK, and at numerous Simchas thereby fulfilling the original function of the Klezmorim. For the past 3 years Shir has been performing regularly in Spain (Madrid and Santander). Last summer the group was at festivals in Madrid and Cordoba at the invitation of Casa Sefarad (a Jewish Cultural department of the Spanish Ministry of Culture).
Shir was invited to play at the Salute To Israel in Trafalgar Square, the Kindertransport 70th Reunion, the Maccabi GB 70th Gala and Limmud in the UK and Holland, and won the Best Yiddish Song Performance Prize at the International Jewish Music Festival 2010 in Amsterdam. The group has recorded 3 Cds: "From The Heart", "Israeli Songs", and their latest recording, "Ashk'farad", a collection of Klezmer and Ladino songs and instrumentals.
