Get your spoons, hubcaps, whistles and any other junk you can bang on and come down to StageOne to welcome back to Fairfield Theatre Company’s StageOne Bridgeport’s favorite band of gypsies Caravan of Thieves. Having been on tour across the country for the majority of the year in support of their 3rd album Fun House, this theatrical band of misfits come back in support of their latest tour “Homeless for the Holidays” which helps benefit the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

Caravan of Thieves have been on a roll since the release of their 3rd album earlier this year and seems like this caravan isn’t going to stop anytime soon. Performing alongside of the likes of Emmylou Harris and Glen Campbell earlier this year apart of the Ann Arbor Folk Fest in Michigan, this unique band made up of husband and wife songwriting duo Fuzz & Carrie Sangiovanni, violinist Ben Dean, and upright bass player Brian Anderson will have their family of freaks as they refer to their fans hooting and hollering for more of their poignantly catchy tunes like Raise the Dead, Candy and their version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

Caravan also wants to let those in attendance know that there is a serious issue happening in this country and around the world, one that has hit many after hurricane Sandy among the eastern seaboard of homelessness. Caravan has teamed up with the National Alliance to End Homelessness an organization that reminds those that there are 643,067 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United Stated alone.

“The idea of this tour came from when we first thought of naming the tour "homeless for the holidays" because we were going to be away performing most of October through December. But of course we thought of the people who were actually homeless and it lead us to search and find the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and put together a fundraiser where the proceeds from a couple of holiday themed song downloads would go toward their organization. But now that our home town and entire region suffered the wrath of hurricane Sandy, it feels even more purposeful. We have not been home since early Oct and have only seen the internet posts and news reports. Just devastating.” Says Fuzz.

The Fairfield Theatre Company is also doing their part this holiday season by collecting can goods to support local Fairfield County charity Operation Hope during a few shows this holiday season. In the past year, FTC and Operation Hope have raised over a ton of food in May during the national post office food drive and over five hundred pounds during the Jen Chapin concert held September 30th.

FTC and Caravan of Thieves ask for your support this holiday season by bringing can fruit, tuna, and soup goods to selected shows which will aid Operation Hope and by downloading Caravan of Thieves holiday songs which help support National Alliance to End Homelessness. They both would like to thank all who help make this holiday season a little bit easier for those who are less fortunate.
