Caravan of Thieves creates fun yet elegant compositions that embody the spirit and swing of early Gypsy jazz, but with plenty of witty, inventive lyrics and vocal harmonies to serenade the listener. Fiery violin arrangements, thumping upright bass, and rhythmic acoustic guitar spanking counteract the sweet, melodic, harmonious male/female vocals of Fuzz and Carrie.
In their first year together, Caravan of Thieves performed in premiere venues around the country with world renowned artists such as Dan Hicks, Tony Trischka, Tom Tom Club, Menudo, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Trout Fishing in America, and Ryan Montbleau Band. Caravan successfully connected with audiences on each of these diverse bills, proving their music to be a hit with folk, pop, rock, and jazz appreciators alike as well as all age groups.
Also in that first year and in a fit of creativity, the group wrote, recorded, and released their debut full length album, “Bouquet,” featuring 12 original compositions. To accompany this collection of dramatic and comical short stories, they built an interactive stage set of percussive junk which delivers audiences directly into the wild, imaginative minds of Fuzz and Carrie and the Caravan of Thieves.
