Musical Circus is all about fun, music and getting the “touchy, feely” back into musical Instruments.
Formed by two Wiltshire musicians who found themselves without local music shops to buy from anymore. They came up with a hair brained idea for a modern day shop/approach to trading and provide a service in what they know best!
“I’ve (Mark Griffin) worked in small music retail before, it is very tough and competitive but what most small independent retailers have is great knowledge and the chance to try items and make your own choice.” Ray (Jones) added “Most people use the internet to buy things these days, but in the case of guitars it’s a truly personal experience and selection, you really need to try rather than buy blind and hope for the best online… We do also exist and trade online, you have to in these times. Some of our vintage/unusual stock has even been sold to famous stars that wouldn’t just show up to a show night. (Although they would be very welcome to attend!)
The instruments hopefully speak and play for themselves at the shows. They are all serviced, set-up and tuned ready to play and we have a great cross section of prices and stock. Our aim is to get back to that personal small retailer approach but felt in these modern times a bricks and mortar shop may not be the best way to achieve it?
The shows are very relaxed and fun that anyone any age and musical ability can come along try something interesting or different. There will be live music on the night as well as a live room auction! Bring a long your old guitar! – We buy/sell/trade on the night (ID always required for trades/PX)
The Bell by The Green was an obvious choice in the town for a show, They’re great and very switched on to live music and have a great back room to host it all. The Musical Circus team are taking over The Bell by the Green for our event on Thursday 7th November and would love to see musicians of all styles, ages for the evening!
