"There's a fairly decent variety on this CD. But there's so much more that until recently, Amazon didn't carry - if you want a rock beat, try artists like Oif Simchas or Piamenta. There's my personal favorite, Lipa Schmeltzer - check out "The New Project X" for a CD sure to get people on the dance floor. There are great wedding albums by Neginah, Neshama and a number of other popular wedding bands. And among the best is "What A Wedding in Overtime". Amazon now offers them from seller MostlyMusic so perhaps search by seller if you're not quite sure what you're looking for. You won't regret it when everyone at the wedding is dancing up a storm! I have no affiliation with this seller, I just love the music, and am glad this shidduch now exists."
In the mood for celebrating

"Well, I'm certainly not an expert in Jewish music, and I've just recently begun to feel any real interest in Klezmer and popular Jewish music. So if you read this review and have any prior advanced knowledge of this kind of music, I advice you to listen carefully to the samples first. I bought this CD as a sort of introduction because the price was great.And I think it is good value! All the pieces are instrumental, danceable, and they conjure a happy mood. They convey an atmosphere of summer open-air celebration that remind me of the summer festivals of my childhood in Spain. In fact, and although these songs probably originated in Central Europe, they are not so different from the popular waltzes and paso-dobles that are played at night verbenas accross Southern Europe. It is the kind of music that makes you want to dance and shout To Life!"
