About Us:

Caravan Gypsy Swing Ensemble is an instrumental group based out of Madison, Wisconsin. They are primarily influenced by the legendary Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. The ensemble also pulls influences from jazz, swing, traditional Latin, Parisian waltzes, and other vintage-jazz sources. Expect a range of tunes from the "Hot Swing" repertoire, originals and standards done in uniquely arranged styles. The idea for Caravan G.S.E. started in early 2002 when Chris Ruppenthal, the group's leader and an aspiring jazz guitarist, first heard recordings of Dutch Gypsy jazz guitarist Jimmy Rosenberg who played in the Reinhardt style. Chris soon turned away from the American bebop style of jazz guitar to follow in the long shadow of Django and was inspired to seek out fellow Gypsy swing enthusiasts. Caravan G.S.E. sprang out of that inspiration as a trio of two guitars, and violin. The trio played a barrage of open mikes and busked at local farmers markets to get their repertoire together. After adding a bassist and clarinetist they began playing coffee houses, clubs, and parties. Soon they were recording, and performing consistently throughout the Midwest. The group released it first official full length CD "Caravan Gypsy Swing Ensemble" on Hot String Swing records in 2007. The recording features an expanded band lineup and includes original music, arrangements of Django Reinhardt classics, jazz standards, and Latin tunes. Caravan Gypsy Swing Ensemble's recordings have been prominently featured as a bed soundtrack on ABC 27's "Cooking The Casbah." Their music has also been used in advertisements for RP Pasta and for chocolatier Gail Ambrosius. Caravan G.S.E. has had substantial experience with live performance in a broad range of settings including concert halls, festivals, nightclubs, and corporate events. They have had a wide variety of live radio experience including numerous appearances on Wisconsin Public Radio's "Higher Ground with Jonathan Overby." Highlights of Caravan G.S.E.'s festival and concert experience include performances at Madison's Overture Center, at The Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival, The Isthmus Jazz Festival, and two years in a row at The Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival. Caravan Gypsy Swing Ensemble has become an experienced, seasoned group with a unique sound and a diverse repertoire. They now perform in lineups that range from a two-guitar duo to a six-piece ensemble including clarinet, violin, and drums. Although the music of Django Reinhardt it still at the core of the band they have learned to take Gypsy swing music in a broad range of directions.

About Us:

The Twisted Angels are a classy, sassy cabaret group. Their high-energy, audience involving performances are based on a mix of cabaret, oldies, theatrical, and hip hop music. Aside from plenty of vocal and dance talent, costuming is a large part of what makes this group a shine! Always red and black clad, they perform in corsets, fishnets, long gloves, and plenty of diamonds, glitter, and glitz! This group is perfect for corporate events, festivals, bachelor parties, and smaller venues. But watch out - they're almost TOO hot to handle! (Absolutely no nudity involved)
