Isser Feiglin began his singing career at the young age of four, at a school kindergarten concert. Following his debut, his career went into hiatus as even his parents were sure that their son was moderately, if not absolutely, tone deaf. Not to be dissuaded, Isser kept singing, braving the criticism and hurting ear drums far and wide. After participating in numerous choirs without being selected for any special role, Isser finally sang solo in public again at age 12, when he accompanied his father, Chazzan (cantor) at Gandel-Besen Synagogue in Melbourne, during Yom Kippur services. A string of performances followed – if you count his barmitzvah Torah-reading as one – until he finally won his own Chazzan cantorial role in Tasmania at age 16. Due to his popularity, it was necessary for him to pay his own airfare.
The dearth of good Chazzans in Melbourne propelled Isser to a Chazzan position in East Melbourne congregation at age 17, Moorabin at 18, and then overseas to Highland Park, IL, USA, for the next 7 years. Meanwhile Isser experimented with saxophone and a Melbourne Jewish punk rock band called “Frusk” that mostly sounded like other Jewish bands. Due to the persistent requests of friends, Isser started singing at Chuppahs, weddings and barmitzvahs, forming his own band in 2011.
With influences ranging from Chazzonus, to Jewish contemporary artists as well as opera, jazz, R&B and soul, Isser is one confused guy. We hope you like his singing.
I have known and worked with Isser for the last few years.
He has the most heavenly voice and definitely has the ability to create the most wonderful, spiritual atmosphere at an event of any size and nature. Most important of all he and his band members leave us all with fabulous memories.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him and his band to anyone.

Over the past few years we have worked with Isser at many different functions. He has a terrific voice and brings a fresh new repertoire to the hora dance set. He’s also a pleasure to deal with, punctual and organised. He has an ability to bring out a big band hora feeling, using every one of the musicians in the John Field Band to great effect. We always recommend him for the best Hora music in Sydney, with great energy.
