Join us for some great acoustic music at the Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn. Tickets are $15 and I recommend that you purchase them in advance at http://jalopy.biz/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=878.
We'll have dinner nearby around 6:30; details on that to come. The music starts at 8 but I highly recommend arriving 20 to 30 minutes early.
Caravan of Theives
Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It's theatrical and humorous. It's musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs. 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.
Lead by husband and wife songwriting duo of Mark Miller and Beth Jamie Kaufman, Spuyten Duyvil's (pronounced: "Spite + n Dive + l") soaring vocals, traditional jug band energy, amped-up lap steel guitar and Chicago-style blues harp propel the listener on a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music. Listening to this joyous eight piece band for the first time is like throwing a cherry bomb into a lake. It wakes you up.
