BandRockComedy

Environmental Encroachment combines music, dance, and acrobatics to create an experience that is equal parts circus carnival and rock concert. With the free flowing improvisational nature of their songs, along with the non-stop energy of the ensemble, EE promises no two shows will ever be the same.

Biography

Originally formed in 1998 as a puppet company, Environmental Encroachment: The Magic Circus Band, has evolved into a twenty piece circus band that takes horn and percussion, throws in a splash of acrobatics and clowning, and brings unforgettable performances to anyone in attendance.

To narrow down the styles of music which influence EE would be near impossible, as the backgrounds of each of its band members runs the entire spectrum. Whether it be jazz, blues, musical theatre, rock, heavy metal, and even a little opera, each member brings a special influence to the ever changing and growing roster.
