Wedding in Fontana, CA
The Sabras were great! They were great in incorporating our desired song list and even learned a requested song for the final dance of the wedding. They learned the song within 1 week! Additionally, they were very timely and professional. Also, they were very flexible with the cost and worked to meet our budget.
They are very accomodating with regards to time, band members and cost, and I would highly recommend them. Thanks Sabras!!

Wedding in Baltimore, MD
The Sabras Band 5/5
Very highly recommended. This band was incredible! I found them through a search of international music and booked them directly. They played for us in Baltimore and near Columbia, MD just outside the Washington DC area.
We wanted Jewish music, both traditional hora and modern Israeli and also to have Latin Salsa and international music. Having found them on the internet, with no reviews on weddingwire felt risky. But conversations with Yosi the band leader led me to believe that they were really used to playing weddings and knew a lot about how to organize a party too. The rates were fair given what they do, which is incredible. As their website says, they are known for their diversity of music. The band plays American Rock, Klezmer, Israeli, Latin, Greek, Jewish & Middle Eastern music. The Hebrew selection includes Sephardic Israeli, Jewish Klezmer & Israeli Mizrahi music.
They really will travel wherever you are and play! It was amazing and we're still, a few months after the wedding, getting comments about how great the band was. A band is so much better than a DJ in getting a party rocking! We danced a lot. Yosi even led some traditional Israeli dances and knew how to organize a Mezinka dance. And then rocked the house with American music, and then sang in French to our French speaking guests, and then back to Latin salsa.
We also negotiated a contract that included two musicians playing at our ceremony. The guitar and clarinet were so beautiful! We had a lot of happy tears around the room at the first part of our service and I think that the music in the background (Klezmer and traditional Jewish) was just the perfect backdrop. Their versatility as musicians is unparalleled.
