The Vulgar Bulgars, a high energy group of Virginia Klezmers, play a blend of time-honored klezmer classics and modern klezmer-inspired tunes, giving each song a special "Vulgar Bulgar" twist! Their arrangements range from "make the grandparents happy" traditional to "smokey nightclub" funky, and their audiences always have a blast!
"This is a group that could go far. Their most affecting qualities are their humility, enthusiasm and quirky sense of fun.... The Vulgar Bulgars are excited to be soaking up the literature and forms of Klezmer, even as they gleefully warp it into new and strange shapes. It takes a certain irreverent, maniacal sense of fun to transform a tune appropriate to "Fiddler on the Roof" into something that might be more at home on Tom Waits’ "Raindog" album. But—trust me—it works." —Jeff Hoodock, Music Reviewer for Harrisonburg Daily News-Register
