Java Jews " -- Des Moines Register

The world's first Klezmer band to perform at the Iowa State Fair   2003,  2004,  2006, 2007

Performances for Jazz in July in Des Moines and in Davenport, Iowa City, Galena, IL, Newton, Grinnell, Ames, Johnston, Waukee,  and Adel.

Java Jews has at its core  a 7 -person  ensemble that plays highly-caffeinated klezmer music. Led by Abe Goldstien* (accordion) and Mark Finkelstein (trumpet), the remainder of the band includes some of Des Moines' Iowa's finest jazz players. Hence, highly- caffeinated klezmer . In addition to popular klezmer tunes, we also perform klezmer covers of Miles Davis, standards, and Israeli pop. We play at coffee houses, synagogues and churches, bar mitzvahs, parties and art & civic events. Tel: 515-279-6452. E-mail: abe@trilixgroup.com.

Heard Around Town

What local celebrity never made it out to Adel to catch the Java Jews play at the Sweet Corn Festival --and now is kicking himself about it??

Word is that the Java Jews will open for Willy Nelson -- next time Willy comes to town.  Seems he was dissatisfied with the licks of some unknown musician ( could it have been the real Bob Dylan) at their recent concert.  But then again, maybe we're wrong.

What's the proper attire to watch the Java Jews in action?   Don't ask one of our local fans -- who is reported to have never changed his -- or her -- clothes for three months!!  A token of affection?  Or a sad commentary on today's economy??
A New York State  visitor to the website ( a Mrs. "Miles" Davis)  says she "suspects" that the Java Jews performances must be " a lot of fun."   Hey lady, let's keep the "suspects" where they belong -- in New York State.  We invite our visitor to our fair state to determine said situation for herself.  Just remember:  it's Iowa, not Idaho.  And say hey to "Miles" for us.
