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.

In addition to the circle around the bandstand, several roads in and around Burnet Woods offer on-street parking. Look through the map below to find new areas to park if you want to avoid the traffic!

PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you do not park in CCAC/Dewey’s shared parking lot off Hosea Ave, as this is reserved for Dewey’s patrons and events taking place within CCAC’s new home.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will move to the McKillip Theater at CCAC’s new home (3412 Clifton Ave), one block north of Burnet Woods. CCAC staff monitor the weather closely throughout the day of the concert and make a final decision in the afternoon (typically around 4 pm). If the concert must move indoors, we will share that information on this page, on our socials, and with our email list.
