International Circus Hall of Fame
When you talk about great circus music, you have the names of Fred Jewell, Karl L. King, Sousa and Merle Evans come up in the conversations. Here's a nice display dedicated to Merle's fabulous career on the circus bandstand.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
