Canadian Kitchen Party

In our mind's eye, most Canadians can see the "kitchen party": Drinkers and carousers crowd around a woodstove or step dance across the floor, while a few musicians sit in the corner trading songs and tunes. The kitchen party has been enshrined as an iconic image of the Canadian lifestyle, turning up in pubs, special occasions and your special event.
















The Life of The Party

Anyone who has seen the group live knows the energy, musicianship and sense of good excitement they bring to the stage. They have a way of making the smallest venue feel like a concert or the largest festival feel like a kitchen party. Let's light a fire under your feet and getting you singing and dancing to the sounds of The Down East Band.
