The Goodnight Circus

As one of the original swing band of the movement, this wild bunch is a tireless, animated ball-of-fire that started off cycling around the world in the early 2000’s as part of the legendary Cyclown Circus and now inspires even the tamest of audience members to throw off their hats to get up and dance. Their repertoire reflect their extensive travels and touches on a variety of styles ranging from New Orleans Jazz, Gypsy, Swing, Balkan along with fine original tunes soaked in old time circus-style. Founded in 2011 out of the budding 1920s music scene of Kreuzberg, the Goodnight Circus began as the pre-eminent swing-dance band of Berlin. After cutting their teeth in the underground Berlin scene, they began touring: Germany, France, Holland, Denmark, Poland, and Switzerland. In 2013 they released their second record, of original compositions, with a darker and more eastern feel. In 2014 they were showcased in an ARTE documentary about the Weimar Revival scene in Berlin. They are currently working on a 45 rpm vinyl release, and recording new songs for an upcoming full length record.
