A music website is offering to help people find bands in Irish, German, Italian and Jewish music. The website is called I haven’t tried it myself, but apparently this website allows you to enter your Jewish affair particulars (date,type of affair etc.) and you get free quotes from bands, orchestras etc.. They compete for your
business. It also features plenty of information on live music presentations, as well as how to be your own DJ.
