Cirrus Minor is a Psychedelic Rock band whose music twists and turns through numerous genres. Their original material runs the gamut from funk to rock, reggae to disco, and blues to jazz. Live shows also incorporate significant amounts of improvisation, custom tailoring each performance to best fit the vibe of the event, as well as occasional interpretations of songs from various artists.


The creative and diverse songwriting of Cirrus Minor has gotten them invited to share bills with jammers (Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler, etc…), experimental psychedelic acts (Primus, Zappa Plays Zappa, etc…), and rockers (Green Jello, Nashville Pussy, etc…), winning over every audience. 2010 saw Cirrus Minor touring festivals and venues in 5 states (including Wakarusa, Harvest Fest, dates with Primus and Wookiefoot, etc…), and 2011 is shaping up to be bigger and better, with the release of their full-length album, return appearances at many of the fests they played in ’10, plus a new lineup that promises to add new musical possibilities and enhance what was already a critically acclaimed live show.

In early 2008, Cirrus Minor was formed as a 3 piece band by Aaron Lea (bassist), Mackenzie Fleener (drummer), and Mike Ruby (guitarist/singer), becoming a 4-piece with the addition of keyboardist Rich Cantrell shortly after their first show. The band recorded a 5 song demo, 2009’s “Awaiting Dilation”, which sold out of its initial (and only) pressing at the CD release show, and then was put online for free and downloaded over 1,500 times. In the fall of 2008, CIRRUSMINORLIVE.COM was launched to allow fans to get a free recording of any of their live concerts, since each show is unique; whether they are looking to preserve the memory of a show they were at, or to catch one they missed. After 2 years of regional touring, Cirrus Minor recently expanded to a 6 piece band, with the addition of drummer Joe Corbin (who had worked with Aaron in various metal bands for almost a decade) and guitar virtuoso Donnie Steele (who was an original member of Slipknot), with Mackenzie moving to auxiliary percussion and samples to accommodate the expansion.

Cirrus Minor is a band with the rare ability to jam the jam crowds, rock the rock crowds, and go smoothly from shaking people’s butts to melting people’s faces in any setting. Their years of hard work and overall quality of their musicianship has garnered them a regional fan base, well over 8,500 friends on Facebook and MySpace, and worldwide media attention. With more shows and festival appearances planned for 2011, Cirrus Minor will continue to make each show a unique experience, leaving a trail of fans in their wake wherever they go.
