Your simcha is not just a “gig” to us.

Bnai Mitzvahs
Bnai mitzvahs are celebrations for everyone to enjoy together!

The Chai Notes – Behind The Klezmer

(a short mockumentary)

The Chai Notes are a hit at bar and bat mitvahs!…In addition to great live music, we DJ, we juggle, we do magic, we play fun games with BOTH the young adults (and not so young adults), limbo, dance contests, freeze dance, hula hoops, coke and pepsi, name that tune, prizes, etc. We get everyone on the dance floor celebrating together!Some bands don’t realize that bnai mitzvahs are not just a kids party that adults are invited to watch, and they are not just adult party that the kids will find boring. Rather, bnai mitzvahs are celebrations for everyone to enjoy together! However, it is an art to make this happen. We have the experience of performing for hundreds of bnai mitzvahs and know how to make the magic happen, literally and metophorically.


We want to make your Wedding is everything you had dreamed and more!

We truly consider it an honor and a privilege each time we are invited into the lives of other’s families. A wedding is not just a “gig” to us. We work with you throughout the wedding planning process to make sure your special day is true to your visions and everything you had dreamed it would be, and more. From the time you hire us, we start working with you to plan the event. We form special connections with our couples that last long after the event. We feel that having us play for your wedding is b’shert.




“We are so glad to have discovered the The Chai Notes. These are young energetic musicians/performers who truly love what they do. They play great music, and they also did a great job with the DJ’ing. Our wedding didn’t seem like just another “gig” to them. The band leader, Dan (who himself recently married, and to our lovely vocalist Laura) was very helpful to us throughout the planning process the months before. The entire celebration turned out truly outstanding, from ceremony to reception. We received many many compliments on the band, and we ended up giving their number out to many of our friends…”

“The Chai Notes turned our Bar Mitzvah into a fantastic simcha! Dan and the band are so talented and versatile. The clarinet playing was beautiful. Laura, the vocalist was lovely and lively. They had my son and his friends dancing and playing the whole time. From music, to hoola hoops, to magic, and even scarf juggling, they kept the young and the not-so young involved and happy. And, they were a pleasure to work with during the hectic time leading up to the Bar Mitzvah. I heartily recommend The Chai Notes!”
