Caravan of Thieves
Gypsy folk troubadours Caravan of Thieves will return to stages across North America this fall after an electrifying year of lineup changes, personal and artistic growth, album releases and the unpredictable life of a touring music.
Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni, the musical couple, founding members, front people and creative team behind the band have forged their Caravan of Thieves forward this year by introducing a variety of new stringed instrument players, other musical guests and an ever-expanding artistic vision that continues to develop since their early 2008 beginnings in their Bridgeport, CT apartment.
Originally inspired by the big band swing era, the Quintette du Hot Club de France, and early American folk music, the acoustic guitar playing and singing duo took local musicians Brian Anderson (upright bass) and Ben Dean (violin) out on the road with them to test drive their new concept. By the end of their first year, the Caravan began to gain recognition for their distinctive style, released their debut full-length album Bouquet (2009) and shared stages with a wide variety of artists such as Emmylou Harris, Dan Hicks, The Decemberists, Keb Mo, Tom Tom Club, Punch Brothers, and many others
Fuzz and Carrie eventually reached a comfortable stride embracing their roles as show and album producers, songwriters and arrangers, released Mischief Night (2010), The Funhouse (2012), Kiss Kiss (2015), and continued to build on their concept with each tour to follow. As a result, the live performance now covers a wide dynamic range and appeal with each show flowing seamlessly from intimate acoustic duets to entertaining and exciting junk-percussion jams to big audience stomp, clap and sing-along
According to Fuzz and Carrie, “We’re driven to consistently entertain our audience, in concert and on our studio recordings, which lends to building a community of listeners who can be involved in our show and our creative process in some way, as well as a variety of artists who we can share our vision with. These elements allow our band and our music to be alive and have a soul.”
