"Robby will greatly enhance your celebration. His warmth and energetic music will be remembered by you and your guests for many years to come." - B. Biron

The Simcha Difference

Founded by Yehudah Asher (Jerry) Katz, the Simcha Orchestra has provided the very best in Jewish music since 1982. Robby Helperin took over the band in 1993 and instituted professionalism and technical proficiency rarely seen in Jewish music. Just ask our clients! There’s nothing like experience, and we’ve done over 2700 events, and that’s just since 1993.

Robby and the Simcha Orchestra have performed with:

  • Mordechai Ben David
  • Avraham Fried
  • Yaacov Shwekey
  • Lipa Schmeltzer
  • The Piamenta Brothers
  • Shlomo Carlebach
  • Benny Friedman
  • Dovid Gabay

…and many more!
