Silver Dollar Circus started humbly as an acoustic project of childhood friends Ethan Stoddard and Andrew Sept under the name "Come to Shore". Growing out of their acoustic guitars the duo purchased a keyboard and an electric guitar and added third member Trevor Hollenbeck, an old high school friend of Andrew's, on the drums. Changing their sound, "Come to Shore" finally came into their own and changed their name to Silver Dollar Circus. Along with these changes the band also went through several changes in bass players. They finally decided upon Michael Brown, a bassist who had just moved to the area from Manchester, MO. Finally solidifying their line up the newly reinvigorated group set forth to play more shows and write new, better songs. After several months the band went into studio and recorded their 2nd album "The Anamalia" which is available on iTunes.
