The Zestniks are a band of leading Auckland musicians performing Jonathan Besser's contrapuntal Bach inspired Gimel tunes, mixed with rhythmic improvisations, all infused with New York Jewish aesthetics.
For the 'Back Beat Bar' performance the Zestniks will feature singer Carolina Moon, vibraphonist John Bell, as well as the virtuoso Guitarist Nigel Gavin. The Zestniks will perform some of the 18 pieces of Besser's 2012 Gimel 1 Suite. Gimel 1 Suite was originally performed with a smaller band, which toured the music all around New Zealand (with Art's On tour) in 2012, and also performed in Sydney's 'Shir Madness' Jewish Music festival that year.
