Everyone was so blown away by the concert. When I closed my eyes it was like I was sitting in the front row of the Gradus Hotel in Monticello during one of many concerts I experienced as a little boy. I truly felt that Hot Pstromi would make Dave Tarras proud. "
- Marc Tarras

Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi did Dave Tarras proud with their tribute concert -- the music, the stories, the warmth of the presentation made for a magical event."

About Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi

Hot Pstromi bandleader and founder Yale Strom was a pioneer among revivalists in conducting extensive field research in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Rom communities. This unique research formed the foundation for Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi.  Hot Pstromi’s sound – a fusion of traditional klezmer, new Jewish music, Gypsy, khasidic, world beat and Balkan music noted for long improvisational breaks – is unique and celebrated.
