Based in Minneapolis, Circle of Heat is a rock band at its core. Drawing inspiration from genres such as funk, jazz, prog, classic and '90s rock, their music is ever expanding into an original sound with a familiar feel. For their sophomore album, 2016’s Some People Say, Circle of Heat continued their focus on musicianship and diversity in songwriting all while allowing room for the spontaneity and improvisation that make their live performances such unique experiences.
With over seven years, hundreds of shows and thousands of miles under their belt, Circle of Heat continues to push themselves. Playing many of the Midwest’s top festivals (Summerfest, Wookiefoot’s ‘Shangri-La’ & ‘Revival’, 80/35 and Big Wu Family Reunion) as well as a year-long weekly residency performing on the legendary stage at the Cabooze in Minneapolis has allowed them to collaborate with local and national acts alike (The Motet, Dopapod, Kung Fu, Particle, Delhi 2 Dublin, The Big Wu). As they forge ahead, Circle of Heat makes these promises: they will always bring contagious energy and new music to the stage, and they will always be there on time.
