TONIGHT! Friday, December 9 CARAVAN OF THIEVES; guest Christian Evans  Stretching the parameters of acoustic swing, Caravan Of Thieves has been winning immediate praise for their new and unique brand of gypsy flavored song writing and their high intensity show. The vocal harmonizing, acoustic guitar-spanking husband and wife duo, Fuzz & Carrie, have extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson, to complete their colorful vision. Seeking inspiration from beyond the great divide, the quartet produces layers of Beatlesque vocals, driving rhythms, satirical, dramatic song writing and an overall circus of sound.
