Here's what Ari Davidow had to say on his Klezmer web site:
    California Klezmer is led by Gerry Tenney, of the well loved "Lomir Zingen A Yiddish Lid" Global Village CD134). It also includes Betty Albert Schreck, the wonderful Jim Rebhan (also of the Bay Area Ellis Island), and more.
    This band is, essentially, the Bay Area Klezmer All Stars--and we're talking stars who go back to the very beginning of the klez revival.
    Somewhere in his correspondence to this web site David [J. Gray, former clarinetist for The Klezmorim and California Klezmer] notes that California Klezmer plays everything from klez, Yiddish folk, and Yiddish Rock 'n' Roll ("In der shtill von den nacht," "she's a shande on a honda," etc.) Ya wanna dance? Ya wanna party? These is my homeboys. [accolades, Ari Davidow]
