Curtis is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. The twenty-year show business veteran began performing at the age of seven as a juggler and acrobat, but has since turned to the banjo because that’s where the money is. His band, Curtis Eller’s American Circus, has developed a devoted international following based on spellbinding stage performances that combine a dreamlike view of American history with silent film style, physical comedy, and explosive rock & roll energy. The iconoclastic troubadour has spent twenty years relentlessly touring the clubs, theatres and festivals of North America and Europe. Eller’s legendary solo shows once earned him the title of “New York’s angriest yodelling banjo player”.
Eller will be bringing the show to Australia for a limited run of intimate, acoustic performances, anchored by an appearance at the Cobargo Folk Festival and then followed by an Aussie tour with a Central Coast pitstop at the Funhaus Factory in Gosford.
A savagely lyrical, surreal chronicle of some of the darker, more obscure moments in American history. Cruel ironies, double entendres and surprisingly subtle humor are everywhere in his songs. Eller’s also got a fantastic new album, ‘How to Make It in Hollywood’, which finds him taking a full-throttle detour into dark garage rock and classic soul music along with the oldtime sounds that made him one of New York’s most riveting live acts” -New York Music Daily.
