Fantastic support from all campus, community, regional and national stations for this awesome SA band.
Prime Circle have appeared on local compilations – “The Right Stuff” and 5fm’s “Playlisted 2”. Great to see South African bands back to back on tracklistings with big international acts AND they are also on the new 94.7 Highveld Stereo album “Homebru” – dedicated to great homegrown South African talent.
Prime Circle’s debut album “Hello Crazy World” has already sold over 10 000 copies and continues to be popular in CD Stores around the country!
Prime Circle was formed in December 2001 in the small town of Witbank and have melded themselves into a “prime circle” of entertainment – they co-write all their material! Ross (vocals) the primary songwriter will take an idea to the band and together they all give their input and hits are born.
The collective musical experience of the members of Prime Circle is phenomenal! Gerhard (drummer) has played alongside bands like Squeal, Sons of Trout and Sugardrive.
Marco (bass) and Dirk (lead guitar) have played at many festivals and gigs around the country over the last 12 years.
Prime Circle has also been nominated for “The Top 30 Most Played songs of 2003” and found themselves in two spots in the top 20.
