Circle of Heat
Based in Minneapolis, Circle of Heat is a rock band at its core. Drawing inspiration from genres such as funk, jazz, prog, classic and 90’s rock, their music is ever expanding into an original sound with a familiar feel. For their sophomore album, 2016’s “Some People Say”, Circle of Heat continued their focus on musicianship and diversity in songwriting all while allowing room for the spontaneity and improvisation that make their live performances such unique experiences.
"Circle of Heat provide an intelligent alternative to mindless jamming. These four University of Minnesota music department products are celebrating the release of (bigwheelin'hotstuff), and the results should be filled with interstellar keyboard and guitar duels. Drawing as much from Frank Zappa's Freak Out! as they do from classical jazz, each track is loaded with instrumental gymnastics."
“The quick rhythms and captivating instrumentals generate a feeling of excitement and enjoyment as the band tears it up on stage. Their sound is one-of –a-kind, full of energy and funk.”
