Chalk Circle formed in 1983 and gained notoriety by the mid-eighties with solid National radio airplay with songs such as “April Fool”, “This Mourning”, “Me Myself and I” and the T. Rex classic “20th Century Boy”. Their albums were released in Canada, Germany and Japan with 1987’s Album “Mending Wall” achieving certified “Platinum” status in Canada. During that time they headlined numerous National tours and shared the stage with the likes of Rush, Crowded House, and Tears for Fears. They also played festival shows in East Berlin, Germany six months prior to the collapse of the Berlin Wall. The band has recently reformed and played three sold out shows in Toronto in 2011 and 2012. One performance at the Horseshoe Tavern for the 40th Anniversary Juno 80’s night event and another co-headlining bill at the Mod Club and later at The Phoenix with friends Blue Peter got the band excited to perform again. Original member’s vocalist and guitarist Chris Tait, bassist Brad Hopkins, drummer Derrick Murphy will be joined by long-time friend and Blue Peter keyboardist Jason Sniderman
