Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 15, 2015From Washington, DC

Machaya played at my daughter's wedding, and the music was great. In addition to their own repertoire, they agreed to learn some new pieces (not "typical" Klezmer) that we wanted for the ceremony. And, as promised, they performed a rousing hora, which got the crowd off to high party mode! Having had much experience with weddings, Barbara Hess provided incredible support. She had many helpful suggestions concerning the wedding logistics and really helped things run smoothly. So, here's to Machaya! Party on!
