Circus Maximus

by Kings Caravan

Hard rocking with a blues folk twist, a mixture of Led Zepplin meets Ten Years After. This album is a songwriting playground from tender ballads to fist pumping jams. This group reaches back to classic rock roots but brings a new modern sound.

Circus Maximus the debut album from the band Kings Caravan brings together a wide range of musical influences to create an innovative new sound from hard rocking jams to passionate ballads. A Portland based band with an all-star cast consisting of Drummer, Jeff Strawbridge (The Strangetones) Bass, Pat Dooney (Rhythm Jones) Guitar, Mike Spicer (Bingotherapy) and Vocals/Guitar, Brian Baker (Saturated Fat) meld their talents in this new group of sensational original music.

Like Getting Kidnapped
This is not background music. Every original song demands your full attention. The songs capture you and take you on a journey that has a familiar departure point but leads you somewhere new and unexpected. The ballads have a country feel reminiscent of the Bakersfield sounds of The Stones' Let It Bleed, especially Little Rivers.

Crank it
This Northwest band is on to something. Noticeably more interesting than standard folk/rock/blues, this is rootsy, bluesy, rockin' music to listen to closely--and loud. Like tunes from Neil Young, the Black Crowes, or certain sides of Zeppelin, with hints of vintage Los Lobos even, Caravan's tracks feature fresh, vibrant melodies and unexpected layers of sonic exploration that reveal themselves the more you listen. Get on the Caravan, it's a good ride.

Neonostalgic Fusion
Kings Caravan successfully walks a tenuous tightrope with their album Circus Maximus. The debut effort traverses a panoply of musical terrain, offering a spangled collection of hybridized, genre-blendered compositions. Though the ingredients sound familiar: Rock, Blues, Funk, Country, Bluegrass, Folk and even Ambient Fusion, you haven't tasted these recipes before. These sonorous concoctions sound like old friends that you haven't met yet.


A good old friend...
The debut album from King’s Caravan has a little something for everyone – evoking the ghosts of the 70s while keeping you guessing at each step and keeping a smile on your face. Transitioning nicely from one style of music to another – from the well written and decidedly 70’s Viking Fantasy, to the CSN-like Little Rivers, to the rockers Quayaquil and Chaps, to the gorgeous orchestra of Only Once – Circus Maximus gives the listener a skilled and satisfying taste of classic rock. No song encapsulates this better than the stadium anthem rocker Wreckage which anchors the album with it infectious hooks and generous guitar licks.

This is an album chock full of well written songs, harmonious vocals, and extended jams – a treat for any music lover who can appreciate and hear the hard work a band goes through to get it “right”….and the Caravan does. I sincerely look forward to hearing more from this up and coming band and you should to.


Great sound for all
I first heard this cd about a year ago and have enjoyed it ever since. It's a great album (if you can still call it an album) to listen to when your in the mood for a up to date smooth bluesy classic jam sound. For me that'e when I'm taking a nice hot bath and relaxing, but I might be getting to personal.

The bottomline is this is a band and album worth checking out. You won't be sorry.
