Since forming in the summer of 1995 at Washington D.C.’s Eighteenth Street Lounge, Rob Garza and Eric Hilton have created a musical style all their own in Thievery Corporation. After a dozen highly acclaimed full-length albums, remix LPs, concert recording and incendiary live performances, Thievery Corporation music is featured across TV and film.
Known for down-tempo, chill-out vibes, Thievery Corporation live performances feature a variety of touring and studio musicians to go along with Garza and Hilton’s bass, guitar and keyboard skills. Drummers, percussionists and vocalists often join Thievery Corporation on the road to make for exciting live concerts.
Garza and Hilton proudly incorporate their diverse tastes of music into Thievery Corporation, often not following trends. By breaking the mold and embracing the cultural diversities that make the world such a wondrous place, Thievery Corporation continues its legacy that runs deep and continues to expand.
Special guest BoomBox brings a little house, a little blues, a little funk, a little rock, and a whole lot of soul. BoomBox consists of two versatile producers, DJs, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and longtime friends that make dance floors move.
