Curtis Eller’s American Circus

Tue 14 Apr

A banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll veteran.

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 a 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’.


  • 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
  • A savagely lyrical, surreal chronicle of some of the darker, more obscure moments in American history. Cruel ironies, double entendres and surprisingly subtle humor are everywhere in his songs. Eller’s also got a fantastic new album which finds him taking a full-throttle detour into dark garage rock and classic soul music along with the oldtime sounds that made him one of New York’s most riveting live acts. - New York Music Daily
  • 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
