Formed in 2010, the Seven Handle Circus are a six-piece Georgia band traveling across the land, pushing the limits of human endurance to send each crowd into a dancing and partying frenzy. They have been critically acclaimed as “Bad Ass Bluegrass” and “a brilliant little string band.”

They have been sharing stages with noteworthy bluegrass acts such Chatham County Line, Mountain Heart, and The Gourds, as well as platinum-selling rappers Yung Joc and T Pain, and were recently invited to play at The Fox Theater in Atlanta by Mumford & Sons, when the band just happened upon an acoustic set 7HC was playing at a restaurant next door to the historic theater.

7HC draws from their love of traditional bluegrass and folk and distills these influences into a modern sound adding the energy of rock and roll to create something that is all their own. With themes ranging from fun of drinking to the complexities of life, the Seven Handle Circus shares the beauty of the music they love, along with plenty of new surprises.


7HC in the Press

“The band’s music has the breathless energy and effortless melodicism that makes many of the songs on the Mumford [& Sons] first album so memorable. It’s folk music played and paced like pop, but with the drive and energy of a rock band.”  –The Pulse (Chattanooga)

“Seven Handle Circus wows me.  There is a non-stop sound and a stage performance that engages the audience.  These guys pack the house.  If you have not been out to see a Seven Handle Circus show, it is an Atlanta “must” do.  At the end of the night I did not want to leave or have the music stop.  I expect to see these guys on the top of the charts soon.” –The Backstage Beat

“Blending musical styles and themes enriches the band’s albums and shows, giving them a certain richness and a youthful edge. Best of all, these guys play with a whole lot of joy, and their growing crowds respond in kind.” -Spartanburg Herald-Journal
