Savannah’s beloved gypsy, swing, honky-tonk and upbeat Latin band, Velvet Caravan, will headline a very special evening of music Thanksgiving weekend on Friday, Nov. 29th at 8:00 p.m. at Victory North Savannah.
Tickets for the show will be available via Eventbrite with tiered pricing at $16-$26 for General Admission standing room and $51-$76 for reserved table seating. Pre-sale tickets will be available at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23rd to members of Velvet Caravan’s and Savannah Stopover Music Festival’s mailing list.
The band continues to explode beyond its Savannah roots with performances over the last year few years at the South By Southwest Music Festival, Rochester International Jazz Festival, The Iridium Club in New York, Word Cafe in Philadelphia, and NPR’s Latino USA. They recently completed a sold out tour across the Midwest. Locally, they have appeared at the Savannah Jazz Festival, Savannah Stopover Music Festival, Revival Fest, and the grand finale event for the 2018 Savannah Music Festival.
Their unique ability to subtly shift musical gears without sacrificing their integrity as composers has resulted in an envelope-pushing group that’s successful across a wide array of fans. If life works in phases/stages, then Velvet Caravan has entered its next one. In this updated version, the band has amped up its wattage in terms of arrangements, compositions and repertoire, while maintaining its vibrant flair and core instrumentation. Now, reinforced by the versatile, Louisville native, guitarist Ken Allday, the sound of Velvet Caravan has turned up the dial!
The Victory North performance will be the debut of the new Velvet Caravan show — expect some new tunes, some old ones and of course, a few spontaneous surprises.
General public tickets will go on sale Friday, Oct. 25th at 10:00 a.m. on Eventbrite. Tickets can also be accessed from https://www.velvetcaravan.com/concerts.
