09/18 | Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan & the Gipsy Stringz Quartet at Caravan Art Festival


A gypsy-jazz lineup includes Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan and the Gipsy Stringz Quartet from 2:00-6:00PM!

Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan is Chicago’s premier gypsy-jazz band.
The group plays the music of Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt with Balkan and Flamenco influenced melodies and rhythms — foot-tappin’ and hand-clappin’ Gypsy and swing. A blend of the jubilant swing of early jazz with the feisty passion of gypsy music and a strong dose of virtuosic spontaneous co-arranging.

“Swing Gitan was playing at full force – powered by Ponticelli’s unstoppable chordal backbeats – the art of gypsy jazz sounded bracingly fresh and contemporary” Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Band of Bohemia’s first-ever Caravan Art Festival will be taking over our private parking lot on Sunday, September 18th, from 11:00 AM-7:00 PM for a day of beer, food, music and general folderol — a perfect way to mark the end of summer, and somewhat coincidentally, the beginning of Oktoberfest. Can’t go wrong with that!

What you can expect:
Beers & festival food from the Band!
More beer! Featuring a new Half Acre Beer Company collaboration, the Sunday in Saigon thai-basil lemongrass saison!
Coffee and wild antics from our friends at Dark Matter Coffee!
Music! A gypsy-jazz lineup includes Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan and the Gipsy Stringz Quartet from 2:00-6:00PM!
Frivolity! A growler ring toss! A magician! The list goes on!

All are welcome! $5 gets you in, with food, drink and entertainment tickets available for purchase upon entry…
