"There's no Business like Show Business". This is an opportunity to share and present Circus History with others.

This is the 1937 Seils Sterling Clown Band. If the tune is as snappy as the wardrobe, you just know they were a Happy lot. The Hodgini family presented their riding act in the show then doubled in Brass as part of the Clown Band as well.
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.
