DIGITAL CIRCUS aka The Brothers Flynn Ronán & Colin aka THE FLYNN BROTHERS FLYING CIRCUS have been making music and gigging together for almost two years and in this short space of time have established themselves as ones to watch on the Irish scene, largely due to their melodic, synth fueled brand of music coupled with their energetic live show...

Musically its difficult to put a finger on their sound but think Vince Clarke, Metro Area, Tiefschwarz, Basement Jaxx, Silver City, Rick James, Mr Flaggio, Gary Numan, Daft Punk, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, Spirit Catcher, Patrick Cowley & Giorgio Moroder, M&G all thrown into a dancefloor friendly whirlwind of disco-funk-synthdriven-house&techno and you'll get an idea of what they're about, well kind of!

Performing live is an essential part of the DIGITAL CIRCUS project and for the live shows both Colin & Ronán are joined by James 'Fonze'Griffin on Bass and Bingo Bango Bongo (John) on Percussion. The DIGITAL CIRCUS live show has taken the band all over Ireland including The Electric Picnic ('06 and '07), Lovebox Festival, Crawdaddy, Sugar Club, The Music
Factory - Carlow, Your Festival - Offaly, Trinity Rooms - Limerick, The Underground, Wax, Dalkey Arts Festival, Red Room - Cork, Rogue, The Village, Cleeres Theatre - Kilkenny, Inisfox Island Festival, Tripod, Spirit (which was broadcast live on Spin FM), Tivoli Theatre, Ri Ra and many more...Expect the unexpected when the Circus rolls back into town with its assortment of live Keys, Vox, EFX, Bass, Cowbells & Percussion to get the party started! Bring on the funk!
