The Crooked Jades are available in multiple configurations for any event!

The Crooked Jades – full band

The full 5-piece band delivers rocking old-time tunes and great songs – ancient and new.

Crooked Jades Duo

Jeff Kazor and Lisa Berman share their infamous harmonies, trade vocals, guitar, dobro/slide, banjo, harmonium, ukelele, and more. They draw on their rich history of more than fifteen years making music together.

They can make a lot of noise for two people, or sing quieter heart-felt songs for any occasion.

Crooked Jades Trio

The Jades Trio adds fabulous Erik Pearson to the Jeff-Lisa mix with more wonderful banjo, minstrel banjo, slide, ukelele, and vocals.

The Crooked Jades are available for the following events

Festivals, Concerts, House Concerts, Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, Private Parties, you name it.
Dances: We also love to play rollicking square dances! We work with many fine callers.
Workshops: All members are experienced teachers. Available for music camps, group workshops, or master classes on stringband history, stringband ensemble, dobro/slide, clawhammer banjo, guitar, fiddle, and harmony singing.

If you don't see what you're looking for, it doesn't mean we can't accommodate you, so let us know your wishes. We're happy to get the party rolling and get folks up dancing, or be low-key background, what ever the occasion asks for.
