Hickory – Friday, June 23, the City of Hickory’s 2017 Sails Original Music Series will feature Caravan of Thieves.  Based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Caravan of Thieves is a four piece band that encompasses gypsy jazz, swing, and folk music. Self-described as “gypsy swinging, serenading, fire breathing, circus freaks,” this band is sure to put on an entertaining show.

Sails Original Music Series Coordinator Bob Sinclair said, “I love the energy of this band!  Their gypsy jazz rhythms, inimitable vocal harmonies, and fantastic stories are theatrical and humorous affairs. This will be both a musical and visual show.  Be prepared to smile!”
