The Gypsy Wayfarers were a 1920's 6 piece all girl band performing during the late twenties flapper era. They had 6 women musicians played the following instruments: banjo, grand piano, violin, trumpet, saxophone and a full drum set. We found evidence online of this band performing in St. Charles, Illinois during 1926 opening of the very famous Arcada Theater!
