Gypsy Swing Cabaret
Caravan of Thieves might be the most fun you’ve had at a concert.
New England’s Caravan of Thieves are on tour in support of their new single, “Dead Wrong.” The song is exemplary of a band on the high road to musical perfection and channels pop bliss through their trademark lock-tight, turn-of-the-century, bang out a beat on anything that can take it approach.
Like many families, Caravan of Thieves was started with a married couple- Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni, (guitar, vocals, various percussive “instruments”) writing and performing as a duo. By the spring of 2008, Fuzz and Carrie extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson completing their colorful vision.
Within that first year, Caravan of Thieves began to win immediate praise for their unique blend of gypsy swing and popular music. Since then the band has taken their dynamic live experience on the road, sharing stages with world renowned artists such as Emmylou Harris, Dan Hicks, Nanci Griffith, The Decemberists, Tom Tom Club, Iron and Wine, and many others. Their infectious live show has also caught the attention of festival promoters across the nation and the band has enjoyed appearances at Summer Camp (Chillicothe, IL), Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY), Herndon Festival (Herndon, VA),Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA), Four Corners Folk Fest (Pagosa Springs, CO), Catskill Chill (Hancock, NY) and more.

“The Caravan sound is a mixture of pop, jazz and folk with a definite vaudeville twist…[Caravan's] songs are dizzying in their musical complexity, lyrical imagery and storytelling aspirations.
