Kugelplex is the West Coast’s rockin’-est purveyor of klezmer and old-world party music.
Formed in 2001, the group plays weddings, concerts and festivals throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. The ensemble has played such venues as Oakland’s Paramount Theater (with the Oakland Symphony Orchestra), Cafe Du Nord (with grammy award winning Klezmatics trumpeter, Frank London), Jazz at Pearl’s, Club Amnesia, Red Poppy Art House, as well as at many top wineries, restaurants, and synagogues. Kugelplex feels equally at home presenting a deep-listening experience in a seated concert hall as we do playing boisterous, soulful dance music.
For weddings, Kugelplex can act as expert ritual facilitators, helping plan your event every step of the way. From tish to toasts, the group plays in a variety of configurations and styles -- chamber music, cocktail jazz, wild dancing, beautiful horas, dance instruction, DJing...

Kugelplex, led by Jason Ditzian, is an incredible band for any occasion but particularly for weddings. Everyone who was at my wedding said the band was one of the highlights of the wedding - if not their whole year - and that it made the wedding one of the best of their lives. Many people told me that they thought Jason played with such skill and heart and they were just blown away. I can't emphasize enough how talented this group of musicians is and how much spirit they brought to the celebration. If you are looking for a Klezmer band, they do the best klezmer (plus much more!) that I have ever experienced in my life. They are pure folk fusion and so talented. I would highly recommend them. Jason was also wonderful to work with and really responsive to all of our requests for specific songs and playing songs at particular times. They whole band even learned two songs for my husband and I to sing for each other so that we could sing with a live band. Truly going above and beyond. I can...
