Circus Mind is a New York-based rock outfit and the brainchild of ringleader Mark Rechler. The band is entering their twentieth year and their latest album “Joy Machine”, a delightful mashup of rock and Nola funk mixed with late-Beatles pop, received rave reviews from Relix, The Rocktologist and countless other entertainment news outlets. Their upcoming EP “Bioluminate” arrives in May 2022.
The band features Mark Rechler on Keys and Vocals, Jaime Scott on Guitar,
Michael Amendola on Sax, LD Silva on Bass, Steve Finkelstein on Percussion
and Dan Roth on Drums.
Circus Mind is able to daringly swing from jazzy grooves to reggae roots then shoot out of a canon into rock without missing a beat. The boys deliver a modern take on influences such as Traffic, Steely Dan, Little Feat and Mott the Hoople while mixing in NoLa influences likeDr. John, The Meters and The Neville Brothers.
Over the course of their career, Circus Mind has performed at Jazzfest, The Fat Friday Annual Mardi Gras Ball, Brooklyn Bowl, The Capitol Theatre, B.B. King’s and many other prestigious venues.
