Caravan of Thieves and Spuyten Duyvil are two bands rising rapidly through the vibrant Northeast music scene. On January 24th, 2014, they bring tightly crafted songs, stellar musicianship and soaring vocal harmonies to the Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn, NY.
With Caravan of Thieves, 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.

Touring extensively, the band has shared stages with world renowned artists such as Emmylou Harris, Dan Hicks, Nanci Griffith, The Decemberists, Tom Tom Club, Iron and Wine, and many others. Their infectious live show has also caught the attention of festival promoters across the nation and the band has enjoyed appearances at Summer Camp (Chillicothe, IL), Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY), Herndon Festival (Herndon, VA),Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA), Four Corners Folk Fest (Pagosa Springs, CO), Catskill Chill (Hancock, NY) and more.

"This zany group brings a touch of vaudeville, over-the-top theatricality, performance art and an all-but-the-kitchen sink collection of percussion utensils (and a hubcap) to their brand of gypsy swing music… those wild and crazy guys (and gal) turned out to be the most pleasant surprise of the day." --Huffington Post
With Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vil"), every performance is a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music. According to Delarue of New York Music Daily, the band plays "an exuberantly original take on classic Americana that draws on influences from the 70s on forward, from outlaw country to newgrass to folk-pop... They’ve got a sense of humor, sizzling instrumental chops and catchy tunes." Their appearance at the Jalopy Theatre follows a rockin’ 2013 tour featuring stops at The Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Caramoor’s American Roots Music Festival, the Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center, and release shows for their new CD” Temptation” at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall and the Ardmore Music Hall in Philadelphia. The New York Times describes their music as “Raucous roots”.
Since it’s release in October, “Temptation” (http://www.spuytenduyvilmusic.com/p/music) quickly reached the #2 song and #7 album spots on the International Folk DJ Chart and broke in to the Top 20 of The Roots Music Report  Airplay Chart Top 30 of the Roots 66 Airplay Chart. Spuyten Duyvil’s previous release, “New Amsterdam” (2011) received a “Top American Roots Album 2011” nomination from The Alternate Root TV and placement on a dozen radio DJ “Top Ten” lists.
Arguably THE prime folk joint in Brooklyn, The Jalopy Theatre is combination theater, music school, guitar shop and bar.  Situated between Carroll Gardens and Red Hook this hidden gem makes the commute worth it.
