Does the music move you?  Literally?  Spiritually?  That’s the only rule for us.  Our spiritual core is to put a modern twist on traditional Jewish dance tunes but we are extremely versatile and play a wide variety of music from rockin’ bluegrass to Motown to the Dead and even new pop -- all seamlessly woven together.  We are built to move your event.  We play weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, concerts, corporate, spiritual services, dance parties and just about any other thing you can cook up.

Just wow!  You guys seriously made our wedding night!  We knew the band was great but you were INCREDIBLE.  Not just during the party section - the mood setting music before the ceremony, the procession, the bluegrass during the cocktail hour and of course the hora all had a unique feel and were perfect in setting the mood of an unforgettable night.  People were complimenting you the entire way.  Thank you for all the hard work you put it - it was more than we could have hoped for.  The only downside was the overflowing midnight shuttle - nobody wanted to leave earlier while SHAMATi had us partying our faces off!                                                      - Elijah Zarlin, Oakland, CA
