Curtis Eller’s American Circus

POSTPONED | Spiegeltent Wollongong



An unhinged, hallucinatory journey through American history with Curtis Eller's banjo-driven, rock and roll maniacs.

Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock and roll singer. Eller is a twenty-year show business veteran who started his show business career at the age of seven as a juggler and acrobat, but has since turned to the banjo because that's where the money is. His band, The American Circus, has developed a devoted international following based on an catalog of critically acclaimed, phonographic recordings and dynamic stage performances that incorporate a dreamlike vision of American history and silent film style, physical comedy. The iconoclastic troubadour has spent a decade relentlessly touring the clubs, theatres and festivals of North America and Europe. The band is touring Australia in support of their latest album, A Poison Melody.

"Curtis Eller finds the middle ground between (Buster Keaton’s) silent film The General and a banjo-packin’ Jello Biafra. Eller’s songs are an American History 101 course in waking life."  - American Songwriter Magazine

“This is wild stuff, the sort of thing you would stumble upon in a tent in a back field at Glastonbury, populated by outsiders making music for themselves and somehow inviting you into their glorious hedonism. It is ribald and righteous.” - Americana UK
