Klezmer music is a hybrid of Eastern European Jewish folk music, American swing, Yiddish theater tunes and Israeli horas. The Evening Post of Wellington, New Zealand called it "a delicious concoction that sounds like jazz but with 11 secret herbs and spices added." Klezmer means "village musician" in Yiddish.
............Yiddishe Cup's first album, Klezmerized, is "a perfect introduction to klezmer," said the Cleveland Free Times. The New York Jewish Week rated the band's second release, Yiddfellas, one of the top 13 Jewish albums of 1999. Meshugeneh Mambo, a klezmer comedy album, is the band's latest CD. Ari Davidow, of the Klezmershack Web site, called the recording: "The most outrageous combination of '50s Borscht Belt shtick and post-modern Jewish deconstruction I've heard in years and, boy, did we need it."
Music editors at the Cleveland Free Times named Yiddishe Cup the best "ethnic/world" band in 2000.
