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. It wasn’t long before the band’s quirky mix of Jazz chords, Folk music, and Punk Rock leanings spread out of the region and attracted a national audience. An audience, a band onstage… both complicit in the desire to defy the world as we know, if only for a brief spell. “Let the music lead,” was always Jimbo’s motto, and continues to be.
The Holiday Caravan features holiday hits and classics, selections from the Squirrel Nut Zipper’s holiday album Christmas Caravan which sold a quarter of a million copies, and the finest new and old Squirrel Nut Zippers music. Since reactivating in mid-2016 the Squirrel Nut Zippers have been performing to packed houses across the country and around the world. As Jimbo Mathus has said since the band’s re-launch, ‘it’s not a reunion, it’s a revival and past presentations of The Holiday Caravan were entertaining evenings for Zipsters, friends and family.
