For the past six years, Caravan of Thieves has roamed North America, recruiting a family of avid thrill seekers at their high-energy shows. 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... 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.

Katy’s will provide a beer and wine cash bar. Tickets are $20 in advance, general admission and also available online at www.nextstagearts.org. Tickets are also available at the Putney Coop and Turn it Up in Brattleboro, Vermont. For more information, please visit www.nextstagearts.org or by contacting Maria Basescu, Executive Director, 802-387-0102 or nextstagearts@gmail.com
