Real Music & Real Estate . . .

Yiddishe Cup’s bandleader, Bert Stratton, is Klezmer Guy.

He knows about the band biz and – check this out – the real estate biz too. So maybe he’s really Klezmer Landlord.

You may not care about the real estate biz. Hey, you may not care about the band biz.  (See you.)

This is a blog with a gamy twist. It features tenants with snakes and skunks, and musicians with smoked fish in their pockets.

Stratton is an occasional contributor to the New York Times, the Times of Israel, the Cleveland Plain Dealer and City Journal. He won two Hopwood Awards.



This 1-minute video is geared toward klezmers under 40. And if you don’t fit into that category, it’s still worth watching. Not everything is about you.

No, no age discrimination, please. Also, some of us are young at heart too, you know. I think the hand motions are the best thing here.
Btw, is your name change official? If so, isn’t it time to make some changes here?

Oy. Such a punchline. Should I be ashamed that I laughed? I don’t care. I laugh when I want to.

Austin, Texas – Wonder if Willie Nelson ever plays klezmer.
