CIRCUS OF POWER Announces '20th Anniversary Show' In Los Angeles

CIRCUS OF POWER has announced a "20th anniversary show" in Los Angeles at The Knitting Factory on June 1. The concert will be the first in the L.A. area that the band has played since New Year's Eve 2000/2001 when they reunited for one night to play the Troubadour. In addition to Alex Mitchell (vocals), Ricky Beck Mahler (guitar), Ryan Maher (drums), and Marc Frappier (bass), the band will also be joined by guitarist/producer Daniel Rey (MASTERS OF REALITY, RAMONES), who produced the CIRCUS OF POWER albums "Vices", "Still Alive" and the now-classic self-titled first LP that contained the MTV staples "Motor" and "Call of the Wild". For this special "20th anniversary show," the band will perform its self-titled debut in its entirety as well as choice selections from their 1990 release "Vices" (RCA) and "Magic & Madness" (Columbia, 1993).

In recognition of the newly announced L.A. show, a new video of "Turn Up Them Jams" has been posted online at YouTube. The clip captures the band playing last summer with guitar player Phil Caivano (MONSTER MAGNET, BLITZPEER) at Don Hill's club in New York City. CIRCUS OF POWER's first NYC show in over 12 years was filmed for the upcoming long-form DVD "Got Motor? Swamp Boogie In The Big City". The DVD will include classic performances shot throughout the band's career as well as new footage documenting the band's "20th anniversary" shows in Austin, New York and now Los Angeles. A preview of director Drew Stone's new film "Passion & Brotherhood", featuring the band performing the song "Motor" with special guests THE CYCLE SLUTS FROM HELL can be seen here. The band also appears in the film performing "Heart Attack" as the soundtrack to the "Urban Street - Bike Warriors All-Star" segment. Live footage of the band is intercut with the world's top street motorcycle stunt riders, including Kyle Woods, Chris "Teach" McNeil and "Crazy" Dan Jackson.
