Opening the Friday Kelly Richey Band show show will be Galesburg’s own Mike Budde’s Rhythm Circus. This energetic psychedelic blues-rock quartet is no stranger to extended, guitar-rich jamming, and they possess the musical chops to deliver a stunning opening performance. These guys are not sure if they are a rock band playin’ the blues or a blues band playin’ rock’n'roll but, they’re having a blast doin’ what they do.

The four members of The Rhythm Circus have all been professional musicians for many years with varied experiences. In 2006, they brought there skills and talents together to create a soulful energetic show that you must see live to believe. From bars in Galesburg, Peoria and Macomb to corporate events in the Chicago area these guys put every thing they got into every show. A tight, skilled and passionate performance pushed over the top with three part harmonies makes this show a real experience.
