Artist Bio

Ladies & Gentelman, Children of all ages behold the spectacle of Circus Mind Bred in the swamps of New York City, Fed on the pulse of a drumbeat mixed with a spicy gumbo. It hasn’t been easy for a multi-headed funk rock band that has roots in the classic rock sounds of the 1970’s mixed with funky southern flavors. But this hidious monster persevered and grew by night into a beatiful flower!

The Circus “performers” came together through a series of meetings somehow involving a yoga class, a “Tea and Jam” party and the Ringling Brothers Circus. Consequently, David Berg (Guitar, Tenor Banjo, Vocals) George Hooks, (Drums) Chris Crosby (Bass), Dave Diamond (Everything) joined Mark to form a cohesive unit that had the chops to play any style of music. “Each musician lead us to the next, which really solidified the group.”

Circus Mind’s members are diverse in their influences as well as their playing:

• Drummer George “Drum Man” Hooks was a long time Ringling Brothers band member on tour for 11 years. Playing progrock, jazz, or eastern european speed metal horahs is standard issue for this Zildjian & Remo sponsored Drum master.

• Bassist Chris Crosby has a serious case of spider fingers and can solo as good as any guitarist and has studied under Oteil Burbridge of Allman Brothers fame.
A young funkster from a family of highly respected musicians.

• Guitarist David Berg is rooted in Jazz, Reggae, and Bluegrass. and has toured with Dark Star Orchestra’s as “the bobby guy”. Dave’s fluid rock style keeps the band in a constant snake like flow.

• Lead vocalist, Keyboardist and Songwriter Mark Rechler has been the band’s creator and leader. Spending 5 years in New Orleans studying Music & Architecture helped influence his style and direction, while always focusing on the hook to keep his listeners salivating and wanting more.

• Anything & Everything Dave Diamond helps round out the band. Covering any base when needed and filling any nook and cranny when requested. Dave plays with Pozzy Ghuru, Jason Crosby, Blow Up Hollywood, The Zen Trixters and many many more. He is an amazing singer as well.
