Since The Circus Left Town

Some songs stick in your mind because the lyrics have touched your heart. Those songs really resonate if the music brings back fond memories. “Since the Circus Left Town” is one of those songs. The brand-new song was written by John Stevens, Jr. and Timothy Wright of Indiana’s own The Wright Brothers Band when the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced the end of an era of talented acrobats, clowns and performers.

“Since the Circus Left Town” pays homage to The Greatest Show On Earth®, which delighted families for six decades. The music video can be found on YouTube. It is a reflective story from three perspectives. The first is that of a seven-year-old little boy reliving his circus memories in front of an audience of his beloved stuffed animals and toys. The second is through the eyes of a smiley-faced clown and what it means for her to lose what’s dearest to her heart as she takes her clown face makeup off for the last time. The third perspective is an emotionally delivered performance by Stevens, who narrates the song and Tim Wright, who plays his harmonica, dobro and mandolin and sings harmonies.

The actors in the video fondly remember happier times when their families visited the three rings of a big top, witnessed the ringmaster’s call, and watched as the talented acrobats performed daring tricks. Sadly, the sights and sounds of the circus melt away as the smile of the clown turns to a frown and the roar of a crowd becomes a distant memory that fades to black.

Scenes from the new music video were shot at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis on its world-renowned carousel that celebrates its 100th year anniversary this year (2017), The Athena Center, home of the old Crawfordsville Indiana High School gym and the bedroom and imagination of seven-year-old Kameron Scrimager also of Crawfordsville.
