The Roxbury Arts Group Celebrates 35 Years of Great Arts Programming with Caravan of Thieves
At the Roxbury Arts Center – 5025 Vega Mountain Rd., Roxbury NY 12474
Saturday, May 24, 2014, Memorial Day Weekend, 7:30 PM
Opening their 35th summer season of bringing the arts to the region, The Roxbury Arts Group has confirmed that this Memorial Day Weekend, Caravan of Thieves, self proclaimed gypsy-swinging-serenading-firebreathing-circus-freaks, will overtake the Roxbury Arts Center with their charismatic blend of gypsy jazz, 1930’s swing and contempoary pop. “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.” It all happens Saturday, May 24, 2014, 7:30 PM at the Roxbuty Arts Center, located at 5025 Vega Mountain Road in Roxbury, NY. Advance tickets for this performance are $18 for adults and $16 for students and seniors. All tickets purchased the day of the event are $23.
With the occasional banging on buckets, frying pans and hubcaps, gripping and sometimes haunting vocal harmonies and captivating stories both whimsical and bizarre, Caravan of Thieves is led by the husband and wife songwriting duo Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni. Rounding out this mad musical family is fierce violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson. Since joining forces in 2008, the four of them ran away from home and never looked back, inviting everyone they meet to come along with them.
It’s theatrical and humorous. It’s musical and intense. Caravan of Thieves entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the audience to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs, and even mad lib! Caravan of Thieves just might be the most fun you’ve had at a concert… ever! Run away from home, at least for the night and spend it with Caravan of Thieves. You may never look back… Caravan of Thieves hasn’t! For more information and ticket reservations please visit www.roxburyartsgroup.org, or call the Roxbury Arts Group at 607.326.7908.
