Biography

Known as a 'Doctor of Musicology' Sircuss started out as a New York on-air & underground club and party DJ. He has spent most of his time on the fringes combining different genres including Dance, Rock, Alternative & Pop .

Madame Haha spent her youth in Southern California absorbing the sun, fun and her equally diverse musical landslide. From Sam Cooke to X, the song's the key and the key is in Madame Haha's grasp!

When they met, Sircuss was blown over by Madame Haha's extensive musical lexicon and deep green eyes and they both joined the sircuss. Sircuss left NY for Los Angeles' Westside where today they both live and produce great music together.

A Sircuss show is a thrilling musical experience. Whether Acoustic or full out Dance Jam, Sircuss always hits you perfectly in that special place in the brain and that special place in the body. Think, Dance, Live!

Lyrics

Election

Written By: Sir Cuss

The Election was held and he raised a glass
He was already President of kissing ass.

No one Controls them and no one gets to laugh
It’s very serious I’m wearing many hats

Silence at the auction and on the chopping block
The minister of course has got nothing under his frock

No one has feelings and no one feels they lack
I lost my honesty in the last attack

All bow down to the king of nonsense sitting on the fence
He wears his crown very tense – it’s a life sentence

Paragon

Written By: James Betesh

Don't hold your head down, little girl
You're old enough to really see
You're stronger than you think you can be
You should be a Paragon for the lights that aim to be free

Don't fear the dark now little boy
You're bigger than the night outside
And you know by now what you cannot hide
You should be a Paragon for the lights that aim to be free.

Wait a minute now baby I just woke up
I thought I heard somebody say they're gonna fess up
But it was just a dream - I misunderstood what you mean
What you mean, what you mean

Don't close your heart now, little girl
You're old enough to stop this fight
And I think by now you'd know wrong from right...

Dreamy

Written By: James Betesh

You make me dreamy,
God I feel besides myself
You make me dreamy,
There's someone else besides myself

I have seen my friends turn black and blue…

Oh what a journey,
Across the land to be with you
Oh what a journey,
The desert stars all cry for you

I have seen myself turn black and blue

Others can sell themselves so short, I'm living dreamy from you

You make me dizzy,
Shuffling around the words
You make me dizzy,
Stumbling around till found

I have seen my friends turn black and blue…

Just like a child,
Words and vision coalesce in you
Just like a child,
Melt me down and mix me with you

I have seen myself turn black and blue
Others can sell themselves so short, I'm living dreamy from you
