The Cyrkle - Songs


The Cyrkle was a rock band with a light and airy British Invasion sound that became famous during the mid 1960s. They are best known for the 1966 summertime feel-good smashes, "Red Rubber Ball" and "Turn-Down Day."

Formed in 1961 while all members were students at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, the classic hitmaking lineup consisted of lead singers Don Dannemann (rhythm guitar) and Tom Dawes (lead guitar, bass; July 25, 1943- October 13, 2007) with Michael Losekamp (keyboards, vocals) and drummer/singer Marty Fried (ca. 1944 - September 1, 2021). First known as The Rhondells, they were discovered by famed Beatles manager Brian Epstein who went on to manage the group. The quirky spelling of The Cyrkle group name came from John Lennon, and they served as The Beatles' main opening act on their final tour.

After disbanding in 1968 following the passing of Epstein the previous year, The Cyrkle reunited in 2016 and has continued to perform actively to the present day. The current lineup is an octet that includes two original members, Don Dannemann and Michael Losekamp.
