Cast of Clowns was founded by Craig Wright in April of 2008 and has played regularly up and down the West Coast, and in Hawaii, steadily developing a loyal fan-base and a reputation as part fun machine, part harbinger.  Focusing on Wright’s original material and lyrics penned by the Grateful Dead’s Robert Hunter the Clowns songs seek out new approaches flowering into future traditions while staying steeped in the roots of San Francisco. 

Cast of Clowns shows feature world-class players, each contributing their unique part to the center ring’s songs and sonic explorations.  

At every show Wright is joined by co-founder, drummer and psychedelic settler, Greg Anton, (also founding member of jam band pioneers Zero), whose creative contributions include co-writing with Robert  Hunter and Wright. 

Regular contributing members include guitarist Jeff Pevar, (Crosby Stills and Nash, Ray Charles, Phil and Friends), Melvin Seals, (Jerry Garcia Band, Master of The Universe), Damian Erskine, (Gino Vanelli), Robin Sylvester, (Ratdog), and Stu Allen, (JGB).

Very special guest appearances have included and often do include Bill Kreutzmann, Barry Sless, Mark Karan, Banana, Chip Roland, Bobby Vega, Futoshi Morioka, Dan Duffin, Matt Hartle, Jimmy Hubbard, Michelle Bellamy, Michael Saint John, Duke Davis, Mikey Stevens, Paul Branin, and Mike Emerson.

Cast of Clowns is set to release its first record in 
October 2012.
