The musical journey of the Squirrel Nut Zippers began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid-1990s as a musicians’ escape from the modern rock radio of the time. Before long, the band’s quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings spread beyond the region and attracted a national audience. The Zippers had a smash hit in 1996 with “Hell” but were inactive by the early 2000s; they reemerged from a lengthy hiatus in 2016. Their joyous, raucous Christmas Caravan tour features songs from their Christmas Caravan and “Mardi Gras for Christmas” releases, as well as other Zippers favorites.
