About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Hi, I play clarinet (klezmer and swing styles), saxophone, flute, duduk, piano/keys and accordion. I studied at the Schnittke Moscow State Institute of Music and graduated as a woodwind soloist, orchestra conductor, and music educator. Emigrating to Hollywood in 1992, I have appeared on several TV shows including Beverly Hills 90210, the Chabad Telethon and Late Night with David Letterman. My other performances include a series of five concerts at the University of Judaism with jazz luminaries Buddy Collette, Abe Most, Herb Jeffries and Bobby Rodriguez. In 2002 I performed at the Playboy Jazz Festival in Beverly Hills with his Hollywood Klezmer Jazz Quintet. Currently, I work as a freelance musician, performer with Valadez World Ensemble at Disneyland (Anaheim) and teacher out of my recording studio near Culver City. With my Jazz/Klezmer karaoke set up I play jazz standards, klezmer and other styles of popular music for weddings, bar and bat-mitzvahs, birthday parties, corporate and other events. I also have world/jazz trio (duet or larger ensemble is also possible) with instrumentation of your choice... If you want quality entertainment for your occasion do not hesitate to get in touch with me to discuss the details... Kings of Klezmer Hollywood Klezmer

Review by Kathy R.

WeddingReviewed on September 1, 2012From Dana Point, CA

Leo is a very versatile jazz musician. For our daughter's engagement party, he played both saxophone and clarinet. The party, attended by 75 friends and family, was a big success in large part due to Leo's outstanding music. He exceeded our expectations.
