Weddings and Private Events


As the old Yiddish saying goes, "Vos far a klezmer aza khasene." (The wedding is only as good as the klezmer.)


Jake looks forward to working with you to create the perfect music for your wedding, B'nei Mitzvah, or any private party. Drawing from a large, versatile pool of NYC's top performers, the musical options are limitless! His party repertoire includes a wide range of styles: klezmer and other Eastern European folk music, classical, jazz, rock, and more.

"If you are looking for a Klezmer band, you want Jake Shulman-Ment and his band. We heard numerous Klezmer bands and Jake and his team blew everyone else out of the water. We got married in LA and flew them out from NY because they are so good. The music is beautiful, the players are wonderful people, and they played a critical role in making our wedding the perfect day we always dreamed of. They have their own modern distinct sound while remaining true to their shtetl roots. This is what Klezmer music is meant to be."

-Daniel Reich

"I can say we LOVED having Jake lead music at our wedding. Beyond just performing, Jake really served as music director, helping us figure out and craft exactly what we wanted in terns of how the music would serve the overall event, and how it would guide attendees emotion-wise through the evening. Jake really is a master of the dance-band magic; he put together several sets of dancing that people described as “The best wedding dancing I’ve ever experienced” and “The most welcoming, accessible, and WILD wedding dance of my life."

-Sarah Larsson
