    The band formed in 1986 in New York City. A no-frills band heavy on tattoos, biker-band lyrics and leather, the band consisted of vocalist Alex Mitchell, guitar player Ricky Mahler and Gary Sunshine (at the time on bass) and drummer Ryan Maher. The group played in New York for several years until they were signed by RCA Records. Around 1990, Gary Sunshine switched to guitar, and Zowie joined as bassist. In 1990, Circus of Power got a huge break, being named as the lone opening band (for the complete tour) opening for Black Sabbath on their Tyr album. Zowie was replaced by Marc 'Frap' Frappier, and Maher by Victor Indrizzo respectively. In 1991, the band signed to Columbia Records and relocated to Los Angeles. Circus of Power disbanded around 1995. The group played reunion shows in 2007 and 2008. In 2008 Rock Candy Records reissued Circus of Power's eponymous debut album. The reissue was remastered and contains a 14 page booklet with a 4000 word essay on the band. The Knitting Factory in Los Angeles was the site for a Circus of Power reunion show on June 27 2009. The show was to celebrate Club Vodka's seventh anniversary and the reissue of Circus of Power's debut album.
