Caravan of Thieves to Kick Off Nationwide Tour, 9/21

Caravan of Theives is on the road and taking their act nation wide, having recently performed on NPR, they're quickly making their way to being a well known band.

New England's Caravan of Thieves is coming back to Cleveland (at the Winchester Tavern) on September 25th in support of their release, The Funhouse. Recorded at Tarquin Recording Studios (The Swell Season, Interpol, The National), The Funhouse 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.

The listener closes their eyes and can taste the bacchanalia and join the fete. Tunes like "Raise The Dead," the record's single, drive the point home with impressive lift, powered by soaring crescendos and inspired gang vocals, not to mention a lyric that invites the deceased to join in the fun. "Mexico" is a dark road ramble that will, at the very least, make you wanna dance around the room, if not run off yourself. "Candy" betrays the writer's addiction to the sweet confections that sounds like Vaudeville, but feels like The Beatles' "Savoy Truffle." And on it goes-the perfect soundtrack for your trip through the tunnel and into the light. If this album can't raise the dead, nothing will.

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.
