"Dynamic and authentic" (Time Out)

LKQ brings you klezmer at its most beguiling and seductive. The subtleties of the original tradition, combined with a kick-the-chairs-over ability to party.

Formed in 2009, the band is popular throughout the UK and has had six sell-out tours in Australia, as well as performing in Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Holland, Latvia, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. LKQ has enjoyed plenty of print media coverage, and live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 & 6, BBC TV, and ABC Radio. Read more
