About the Band: Burning Caravan
Burning Caravan is a Cincinnati-based four piece gypsy jazz, swing and Americana instrumental and vocal ensemble performing songs of Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Dan Hicks, Pokey LeFarge and others.
The band was formed in 2008 by Paul Gibby as “The Hot Club of Terrace Park,” a weekly gypsy jazz jam session at Dilly Deli in Mariemont. The band soon found work as a four-piece ensemble renamed ‘Burning Caravan,’ and has been performing regularly in the Cincinnati jazz scene since. In September 2016, Cincy Magazine named “The Burning Caravan at Japp’s” #6 on their ‘Best of the City’ list. Current members are: Chris Miller, trumpet, vocals and percussion; Mike Barrett, guitar and vocals; Bart Johnson, bass and vocals; and Brian Lovely, lead guitar.
In addition to regular appearances at Japp’s, Burning Caravan has performed at Taste of Cincinnati, Maifest, Summerfair, Bockfest, Findlay Market, Mecklenburg Gardens, Cafe Vivace, Behringer-Crawford Museum Concert Series, Baker-Hunt Arts Center Concert Series, Irish Heritage Center of Cincinnati, Myrtle’s, Neon’s, Dilly Deli, The Harth and Kerrikin Spirits.
