From the heart of Berlin 1920's ragtime revival, The Goodnight Circus brings you New Orleans Jazz, Gypsy, Swing, Balkan along with fine original tunes soaked in old time circus-style.

Founded in 2011 out of the budding 1920s music scene, the Goodnight Circus began as the pre-eminent swing-dance band of Berlin. After cutting their teeth playing local bars and swing-dance events, they began touring: Germany, France, Holland, Denmark, Poland, and Switzerland. In 2013 they released their second record, of original compositions, with a darker and more eastern feel. In 2014 they were showcased in an ARTE documentary about the Weimar Revival scene in Berlin. They are currently working on a 45 rpm vinyl release, and recording new songs for an upcoming full length record, to be released by the Berlin based Syncopation Society.
