Thievery Corporation TicketsSince 1995, the duo of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton has been bringing its brand of electronic music to fans worldwide as Thievery Corporation. Over that time, Thievery Corporation has released 10 studio albums and 19 compilation albums. Thievery Corporation was born during the summer when Hilton, co-owner of the Eighteenth Street Lounge in Washington, DC, formed a bond with Garza over their shared passion for clubbing and listening to jazz, bossa nova and dub music. Experimenting with blending all these sounds together in a recording studio, the pair decided to form its own record label. Garza and Hilton got public validation for their efforts with the release of their first two singles "Shaolin Satellite" and "2001: a Spliff Odyssey" and their debut album, Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi.
