What is Caravan of Allstars?
The Caravan of Allstars started in 1986. Primarily a 7-piece band, they also include a 3-piece horn section and have six singers with a variety of ranges and styles. They are located primarily in Oakland, California. Their deep love and passion for R&B and the blues have all led them to form a support system for other artists as well.
They have enjoyed a number of high profile performances in events like the AT&T San Jose Jazz Festival, California Music Awards, and many others. One of their more notable performances was for an inaugural pre-party for then-President Bill Clinton. They make it their mission to keep alive the old stories of Harlem West and provide a lively and unforgettable performance each time.
To date, they have released two CDs with 50/50 records. Caravan of Allstars have expressed that their biggest influences are: Otis Redding, Albert King, BB King, James Brown, Johnny Hartsman, and many others. They learned the love and practice of blues from the greats and they want to share it with the world. They have made it their business to share with their audiences the deep love and passion that they have for this American art. To do so they often reach out and provide support to budding blues artists.
You can always check their social media page for updates on any local or national events that they appear at. After all, you can’t really appreciate talent until you hear it yourself. These stellar artists often take part in fundraisers for charities and memorial days which celebrate the giants of rhythm and blues as well as other offshoots of the blues genre.
