The Kitchen Gypsies live in Kingston, Ontario and play the Gypsy Jazz (Jazz Manouche) style of music created by Django Reinhardt in France in the 1930’s. In addition to private gatherings and celebrations, we have performed at local events including open air markets, art events, various charity events, The Skeleton Park Festival, Art Among the Ruins and the Homegrown Festival.
