Rooted in the Gypsy Jazz/Gypsy Swing and Latin Swing styles, this  high-energy, acoustic-based quintet of guitar, violin, standup bass, percussion and keyboards (including accordion) has emerged as one of the shining lights of Savannah’s burgeoning music scene. This band plays upbeat tunes from all over the world with thunderous virtuosity and relentless sense of humor.  Bringing together the eclectic sounds are a motley crew of super talented musicians from Venezuela, the Great Northwest, The Heartland, Atlantic Northeast and the Coastal Empire.   

Ferocious technique!” – The Austin Chronicle

Tight and vibrantly free, Velvet Caravan pours violin, acoustic guitar, upright bass, accordion, keyboard…The ensuing worldly sound is sophisticated, yet fun and organic.” The Beaufort Gazette
