  1. We all care about them! Yes we who arte making chassuna and would like beautiful and affordable music at our kids wedding. Do you know how much they have brought down the cost for music by weddings? The price now is almost half what it was before they were around! So yes…we all care about their success and continued support! Hatzlacha Rabah guys.

  2. That Sounds like their arrangement for hagomel in the beginning!!!
    This guy sounds like hes been playing wit them for years!!

  3. Of course they can be half the price they are a bunch of bochurim living in their parents house. They don’t need money. Its a shanda they are puting people who have families to support out of business. Also other bands pay a lot for advertising and it seems this band is zoiche to free advertising from the scoop. Unless this story is what they call “comunicated” in which case fair journalism would dictate indicating such.

  4. Who exactly is being put out of business? Musicians? they can only take away the spot of them three. And why cant they make the money instead of the 3 musicians sitting home? These guys are making more than the average musicians. So who is loosing their parnasas over this? The “Agents” ?? The guys that try to find every excuse to milk customers of their every last cent by means of tacking fabricated additional charges?? I dont feel bad for them. Kudos to this group. I wish them a lot of luck.

  5. to all you booers.. they’re making an honest living – and they’re pretty young and already so good at it.
    how else do you expect them to garner any experience than playing at weddings for cheap?! it’s like building up any portfolio!!
    they won’t always be living in their parents’ basement…
    Hatzlacha to them!

  6. To # 6 find out ur facts b4 u write ur info. 2nd.if someone has a business grade a quality and someone opens up across the street grade. Z quality .with no experience etc. That’s wrong and everyone will agree essential

  7. If u care about them so much than u would help them get back in to yeshiva. now is not the time to make money they are all smart kids and b long in yeshiva!!!

  8. Do u think that is right that’s not called business or competition. Competition is if u offer something in the same ballpark.

  9. These are smart boys. They belong in yeshivah…and guess what? They ARE in yeshiva they just play music at night. Which is very good for some boys who are not cut out to learn the whole night instead of sitting around a dorm room they are mesameach people and make a few dollars. Keep it up guys! That room under the stage isn’t the same without you!

  10. As a musician myself, i can honestly say this guy has great potential. Only one issue that i can see is that he doesnt do enough fills and crashes. but that is just experience, so im sure he’ll be fine soon enough.

  11. #15 you dont know what you are talking about.they get paid very little for their work.other professional bands pay their musicians decent pay and they deserve it because the pros are so much better

  12. they palyed chaim k’s wedding on jan 27 1010 did an excellent, terrific job very professional and very accomodating easy to work with chilled out guys besides theyre a homegrown lakewood band and deserve our support

  13. I”ve seen this drummer play before- I think it was with Shloime Dachs Orchestra- he was fantastic and the crowd loved him.

  14. All u ppl who have something bad 2 say about the band r a bunch of stupid closed minded lakewood ppl there a sick band props 2 my man eli on the guitar
