Caravan of Thieves provides a unique fusion of 1920's jazz and gypsy-folk genres, with smart songwriting and two incredible instrumentalists (one on violin, one on jazz guitar) and wonderfully frenetic plastic-bucket percussion. There's nothing like this; they've really carved out a niche and built a truly new sound. And they are consummate entertainers who know how to get the crowd excited. Their weirdly innovative covers of "Bohemian Rasphody", "Stayin Alive", and "I will survive" made their encore a memorable one indeed!
Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. If Django Reinhardt, the cast of Stomp and the Beatles all had a party at Tim Burton’s house, Caravan of Thieves would be the band they hired.
Led by multi-instrumentalists George Veech and Jessica Anderly, Strangled Darlings are a quickly becoming one of the brightest lights in the galaxy of musicians that populate their hometown of Portland, Oregon. The group’s tunes are a spirituous and devilish attempt to bring the folk/country/jazz world back to its roots as a bawdy, political, and tuneful mix of low and high art.
