The Kugels' emerged from the well known Wellington Klezmer band, Kugeltov. They play a mixture of traditional and original Klezmer music.
Played by professional musicians called klezmorim, the genre originally consisted largely of dance tunes and instrumental display pieces for weddings and other celebrations. In the United States the genre evolved considerably as Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, who arrived between 1880 and 1924,met and assimilated American jazz.

During the initial years after the klezmer revival of the 1970s, this was what most people knew as klezmer, although in the current century musicians have begun paying more attention to the "original" pre-jazz traditions as revivalists including Josh Horowitz, Yale Strom, and Bob Cohen have spent years doing field research in Eastern/Central Europe. Additionally, late immigrants from the Soviet Union such as German Goldenshtayn brought their surviving repertoires to the United States and Israel in the 1980s. Compared to most other European folk music styles, little is known about the history of klezmer music, and much of what is said about it must be seen as conjecture.

The Kugels are: Ross Harris (accordion), Debbie Rawson (clarinet), Jaqueline Nordon (bass), Robin Perks (violin)
