Shpilkis is a klezmer band from Seattle, Washington, located on the unceded land of the Coast Salish Peoples specifically the Duwamish Tribe. They are seven horn players and one drummer. Since forming in 2017, they continue to transform potential into kinetic energy on dance floors at simkhas, holiday events, and block parties. Each member arrives to this music from a hodgepodge of backgrounds: religious, spiritual, secular, pagan; east-coasters, midwesterners, and Pacific Northwesterners born & raised; Jews and gentiles; music-educated and self-taught, with foundations in jazz, punk, folk, classical, and pop. The resulting sound carries Yiddishkayt from many places and times, especially that of current-day Seattle.
