About the event
About the Artists
It's probably the most glamtastic band to come out since BOWIE wiped the lightning bolt off his face. They are from Philadelphia, PA and Creem Circus is what they call themselves (after their two favorite 70's rock magazines, of course... but you knew that)!
Hear them and you will hear original tunes with riffs and choruses that rocket you back to 1974. See them and you will be blinded by the sequins glued to the sides of their homemade platform shoes and glitter bug-eyed glasses. Meet them and you will feel the inexplicable urge to run away with the Circus! The Creem Circus!!But there's more!
Not only is lead guitarist Chris DiPinto a shed-induced riff crafter, he is also a luthier and has his own guitar company: DiPinto Guitars! He has made guitars for many rock legends including Cheap Trick, The Cars, The White Stripes, Dick Dale, Los Straitjackets and even the late, great king of glam rock himself David Bowie! If you missed the glam rock train on its first trip round, don't worry, it's making another stop in your town...and it's called the Creem Circus! https://www.creemcircus.com/
