Moishe's Bagel

Music is a passion for most people as it enriches our lives and there is space for every type of music. Tonight's offering is a eastern european blend which while different is hugely entertaining.The band delivers exactly what their Fringe programme entry promises without over-pushing themselves: this must come from the years of experience they have collected both individually and as group and allows them to work the audience like the consummate professionals they are.

Their music is an interesting fusion of styles and is something unique, but the audience can't help but dig the rhythms and the beat as the music washes over them. However, it would help if the band were to open up slightly and not expect everyone in the audience to know their history and back-catalogue. Nevertheless, those who did know the band’s music were lapping it up and enjoying it immensely - this vibe radiated throughout the theatre. Ultimately this was an enjoyable, interesting evening of music and I would certainly look out for the band again at the Fringe.

Genre-defying original acoustic music from one of Scotland's most admired bands. A cutting-edge, triple distilled brew of eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms and virtuoso performances. ‘Exhilarating ... breathtakingly intricate, with the momentum of an express train’ (Herald). www.moishesbagel.com.
