Flea Circus is currently, at its core, an organ trio consisting of organ, guitar, and drums, though expanded versions of the group are quite common, especially on recordings. At the helm is Patrick Carmichael on drums, who writes most of the group's compositions. Flea Circus covers a variety of styles, but specializes in soul jazz and lounge music, which includes a bit of world music and swing. Most of what they play are original tunes stylistically inspired by the golden age of lounge music and the soul jazz movement of the 60‘s. Patrick has been running Flea Circus for over 15 years in New York City, and wherever they play, they're always an uplifting crowd pleaser.
