The Klezmatics take one of the wildest approaches to klezmer, the traditional dance music of the eastern European Jews. Although their music is heavily influenced by the recordings of Abe Ellstein and Dave Tarras in the 1940s and 1950s, their lyrics comment on a wide variety of political and social issues and have led the group to be labeled, "the planet's radical Jewish roots band."

The original members of The Klezmatics - Dave Lindsay (bass), Rob Chavez (clarinet), Alicia Svigals (fiddle) - were recruited through an ad in the Village Voice in 1985. Trumpet player Frank London of the Klezmer Conservatory Band joined the group soon afterwards. Within a few weeks, the band was expanded with the addition of Lorin Sklamberg (vocals, accordion), Margot Leverett (clarinet) and David Licht (drums). Initially calling themselves "Hortzeplotz" the group soon renamed itself the Klezmatics, a play on words inspired by the rock band the Plazmatics.

Despite their off-the-wall approach, the Klezmatics are held in high esteem for their musical virtuosity. The group recorded two albums with classical violinist Itzhak Perlman, 1995's In The Fiddler's House and 1996's Live In The Fiddler's House. In 1998, they collaborated with Israeli vocalist Chava Alberstein on an album titled The Well.
