Squirrel Nut Zippers Christmas Caravan

Saturday, December 16 at 8 PM

The Squirrel Nut Zippers(SNZ) are bringing their joyous, raucous Christmas Caravan Tour back this season and, this year, they’re performing all of the hits from Christmas past! 

This show is a must-see for any true music lover. Inspired by 1920s jazz, klezmer and vaudeville, SNZ’s endlessly curious and innovative leader Jimbo Mathus has concocted a sound truly unique and original. No other artist of his generation has embraced and synthesized eclectic influences in such a seamless, authentic manner. This unique blend is on full display with the Christmas Caravan show. 

The Squirrel Nut Zippers began their musical journey in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990’s, as a musician’s escape from the cookie cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. Jimbo Mathus along with wife Katherine Whalen and drummer Chris Phillips formed the band as a casual musical foray playing for friends and family around town. It wasn’t long before the band(which had grown in size) developed a reputation for pioneering a quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings and attracted a national audience.
