Band’s Main Musical Influence is Legendary Gypsy Jazz Guitarist Django Reinhardt
Fish Creek, Wis. (July 15, 2022) – The third concert in the 2022 Fishstock Concert Series will feature Caravan Gypsy Swing Ensemble this coming Sunday, July 17. The ensemble has performed to great acclaim several times previously at Fishstock, said concert organizer Steve Ellmann. The group’s music features a range of tunes from the “Hot Swing” repertoire, originals, standards done in uniquely arranged styles and a level of guitar proficiency seldom seen on today’s concert circuit.
To attend a Fishstock concert, drive down County Hwy F east of Fish Creek and close to the intersection with Maple Grove Rd. you’ll notice a big white barn on the south side of the highway covered with colorful letters dubbing it “Fishstock.” Fishstock concert tickets can be purchased at the door for $20 general admission or $25 reserved seating. For reserved seats, visit Door County Tickets (https://doorcountytickets.com/events/caravan-gypsy-swing-ensemble-7-17-2022).
The 100-year-old Fishstock concert barn is one of Door County’s most unique performance locations. What began in 1985 as a venture in employee housing evolved into the site of Sunday night folk, Americana and alternative music concerts. The Series is a combination of some of the area’s best local musicians and bands with visiting favorites, and there are a total of ten highly energized Sunday evenings of great music and fun.
Fishstock seats 150 people in the venue’s hayloft acoustic area for live intermission acts plus another 300 in the ground-level indoor area and an additional 300 in the outside seating area. Both concert ares feature independent state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, creating a personal and rustic setting for performers and audiences alike. A digital projection system with a 10 ft. screen relays the stage views to the outdoor seating.
