Bar Mitzvah Band Hit With Rhythm Stick Now Can’t Help but Whale Out
Canarsie, Brooklyn 1964. During young Irv Fleishman’s Bar Mitzvah, local klezmer group, The Sound Incorporated accidentally got hit by a drive by Rhythm Stick which would soon greatly affect their tempo and their general outlook on life.
“It was a blessing in disguise,” says guitarist, Ernie Babbalo. “We're so happy. Now we can’t help but whale out all the time.”
Still a fixture at glat kosher catering halls around town, the band will play anything but a bris. “We can’t be responsible for any slip ups if we should suddenly whale out on the drums.”
