ABOUT THE BAND
Family Sircle was started in 1985 by the late Edgar Saunders who passed away in 2009, the new Family Sircle now consists of Stanley Saunders, Andy Peterson, Pierce McKoy, and Jerome Saunders. This group is known for primarily old school R&B with a lot of awesome choreography and great showmanship. Family Sircle has opened for Pattie LaBelle, the Whispers & Dramatics, George Clinton, and other great musical icons.
According to a May 2016 article published by News & Observer, Pierce McKoy of McKoy’s Shoe Shine, “was born and raised on Durham’s Pettigrew Street, close to the railroad tracks as well as the Biltmore Hotel and The Regal Theatre, where the stars of Motown would perform when on tour.” McKoy’s journey as a member of Family Sircle is as rich as Durham’s history and one for which you want to be present. Come on and enjoy.
