SPEAK EASY CIRCUS
Speak Easy Circus are an experimental indie/funk posse from the East End of Glasgow. Their chaotic crescendos and eclectic overtures, a celebration of the strange and the new, are a “circus” of tongue-in-cheek attitude and unpredictability. Speak Easy Circus are a breath of fresh air for everyone into never-the-same-way-twice musical curiosity and funky grooves.
Speak Easy Circus (Jack Avison – Guitar/vocals/keys, Jon Wallace – Sax/Keys, Frazer Laurie – Drums and Chatonda Ridley – Bass) released their debut EP ‘Bravo Tango Charlie’ to an unsuspecting world in 2019, drawing excitingly bewildered comparisons to artists as far apart as Earth, Wind and Fire, The Libertines, Vulfpeck, Frank Zappa and Snarky Puppy.
Following sell out shows at King Tut’s and the O2 Academy, Speak Easy Circus and their phenomenal brass section released the single ‘Neon in Daylight’, a self-proclaimed ‘summer-banger’ in April 2020 to great acclaim, reviews and airtime on many radio stations throughout Glasgow and Scotland.
