WASHINGTON JEWISH MUSIC FESTIVAL
Seth Kibel & The Kleztet: Tribute to Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw
A musical tribute to two Jewish-American clarinetists, both giants of the Swing Era, whose influence is felt on music to this day.
Seth Kibel and his band will create an evening full of musical excitement, energy, and humor. For a period of about ten years, roughly 1935 through the end of WWII, “Swing was King,” and no two figures dominated American popular music more than Jewish-American clarinetists Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw. Kibel brings their music back to life — with his clarinet, with his band, and with informative and entertaining historical anecdotes. Come relive the Swing Era!
