Peter Sadkhin and his partner of Tum Balalaika band made my mother's 60th birthday party a night she and the rest of the guests will never forget! They truly exceeded our highest expectations. My home was not only filled with the most beautiful music, but the joy with which they play literally brought people out of their seats to dance. They created an atmosphere of warmth, nostalgia, and fun that was beyond extraordinary. Peter was a pleasure to work with and extremely responsive and accommodating. I cannot thank him enough for the special memories he helped us create.

We had a fantastic time with Tum Balalaika. They truly made the wedding. All guests were dancing and participating. We had the songs we wanted and even impromptu requests were accommodated. The band helped us keep the guests entertained and the program organized. They played different music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. I would recommend them to everyone who wants a fun wedding that they will remember for a long time

Tum Balalaika is a great band! They played at our wedding, which had a diverse group of guests. The band went out of their way to accommodate all different musical tastes. The band learned the song for our first dance and performed it beautifully. Also, the band played live music for the processional, which was very special. We were getting compliments on the band all night. The band truly brought “simchah” to our wedding! Tum Balalaika is passionate about music and performing for people’s special events. The band was enthusiastic and professional. It was a pleasure to work with them, we highly recommend this band!

Tum Balalaika provided excellent entertainment for our guests at our son and daughter's bnai mitzvah. They made it enjoyable, got the whole room dancing and really made the party fun. I have already recommended them to my family and friends, and they have been just as satisfied. You will so happy to book this klezmer band for your party. They really put the freilich and the joy into a Jewish celebration.
