1996 was a whirlwind year for the original members of Orange County rock band, Liquid Circus. Within the same year of formation, the band released a self-titled debut album, were recognized as Best New Artist (North America), and as a result, were featured on a compilation CD alongside Motley Crue and Sponge. With their initial success, they continued to perform live, increasing the promotion and distribution of their music to foreign markets.
Today, founding member and song writer, Rick Maestas has teamed up with long-time bandmates Benjamin Sanders and Kev Davis to reform the band’s sound and vision. They had tremendous success together in the 80’s, playing in bands such as Section 8 and Call of the Wild. Over the years, Liquid Circus has shared the stage with the likes of Y & T, Metallica, Foghat, RATT, Blue Oyster Cult and many more. They continue to play countless shows at venues including The Canyon, The Coach House Concert Hall, The Viper Room and The Whisky a Go Go.
The addition of Kyle Schweikhard (drums) in 2021 and Mike Kobayashi (guitar) in 2020, brings strong energy and a solid foundation to the band. More than 20 years later, Liquid Circus continues to grow a steady yet loyal fanbase, proving that old school rock 'n' roll is still alive and well in Southern California.
