A music variety show that will make you plaz! Broadway playwright and actor Arje Shaw and California Klezmer’s legendary singer-songwriter Gerry Tenney team up as the Kvetchy Cowboys for a great night of Jewish music, laughter and fun. 

Gerry Tenney is a children’s entertainer, musician, leader of the band California Klezmer, and President of KlezCalifornia. He directed the Jewish Music Festival in its early years and organized the first klezmer camp in California.

Born in Russia, Arje Shaw became a professional playwright after a career in the Jewish communal field. Featured works include The Gathering, produced on Broadway in 2001, starring Hal Linden, following the Off Broadway production with Theodore Bikel and Jesse Eisenberg. Mr. Shaw's "A Catered Affair" was produced Off Broadway in 1994. "Magic Hands Freddy" was produced in 2004 at The Soho Playhouse with Ralph Maccio, and The Fix, his debut novel, was published in 2011. "Moolah," a dark comedy, is opening Off Broadway in 2017.
