PHOX was bred in Baraboo, Wisconsin, a place where the Ringling Brothers lived and wintered their circus, their clowns, their elephants, tigers and the entire menagerie during the off-season months. The high-wire performers rehearsed their new acts, in this place dubbed Circus City. The band is filled with and demonstrates the same kind of wonderment that one could imagine only coming out of people raised in such a magical place, somehow stationed in the middle of the Midwest. Let your own wonderment sweep you away this summer, and don’t miss Phox at the Fort.
