Getting to the Bride

Located at 230 Vine Street, one block north under the Ben Franklin bridge, the Bride is positioned on a residential block between Old City and Northern Liberties. Look for the large building with mosaic tile façade (pretty hard to miss).

The easiest and most affordable way to travel to the Bride is public transportation. Septa bus routes No. 17, 33, 44, and 48 run East to West on Market Street and No. 57 runs North on 3rd Street and South on 4th Street.

If you plan to drive, plan to leave early!

If this is your first trip to the Bride, you need to know street parking is limited and sometimes very frustrating. We recommend that you give yourself an additional 25 minutes time for street parking to ensure you arrive with ease and on time. If you plan to use a parking garage, we still suggest that you leave earlier than later.

Based out of Mexico City, Klezermson fuses Klezmer melodies and rhythms with Gypsy, Middle Eastern, and Latin American influences. This mixture results in an explosion reminiscent of rock, funk, and jazz improvisation over the Klezmer musical fabric. This eclectic gyspy-jazz ensemble will ignite the Bride’s stage as we close out our Spring 2014 season on a warm Sunday summer evening.



In 2003, Benjamin Shwartz (composer, violist and pianist) founded KLEZMERSON in order to explore and create a new type of Klezmer music from a Jewish-Mexican standpoint.

The band, does so by gracefully combining melodies and rhythms from Eastern Europe’s Jewish musical tradition (called Klezmer) and playfully infusing it with Gypsy, Middle Eastern and Latin American influences. The resulting sound is a fusion of Rock, Funk and Jazz improvisations over a Klezmer theme.

Back in 2005, KLEZMERSON released their self titled album “Klezmerson,” it was met with widespread critical acclaim and unprecedented success among a very eclectic audience. Rock, Jazz and World Music fans alike began to follow the evolution of the band. In 2008, the long anticipated release of their second album, entitled “Klezmerol”, is a testament to the band’s growth creatively, as they delve deeper into exploring the connections between Klezmer music and more traditional Latin American sounds.

The band’s third album, “Siete” (2011), was released on New York musical authority John Zorn’s prestigious label – Tzadik – and brought KLEZMERSON international exposure and worldwide acclaim.

Their most recent album “Klezmerson Live CD+DVD”, captures Klezmerson’s mastery of their craft as well as the energy of their live performances. They are currently working on their fifth album, which has yet to be formally announced.
