Since its founding in 1971, WJU Members have proudly participated in what has evolved as our core mission: Preservation of, Education about, and Performance of the music played in traditional American Circus and Wild West Shows. Founders and early Members referred to the organization as “My Windjammers,” “Windjammers,” “My Windjammers Unlimited” and similar monikers. During the 1980s and 1990s and the era of acronyms, some simply said “MyWJU” and “WJU.”

Whatever you use, Windjammers Unlimited is here as the authoritative source and repository for all things circus music.

Join WJU today! We look forward to hearing from you.

A Word from the WJU President

Don Covington, WJU President

You won’t want to miss the summer meet in Baraboo in July. Baraboo is where the Ringling Bros. founded their first circus. Thanks to that heritage, we will be presenting concerts in locations that perfectly mirror our goals of preservation, education and performance.

Windjammers at Baraboo 2016 (one of two performance groups)

In Baraboo, we will present concerts at Circus World, the Wisconsin Historical Society’s circus museum located at the site of Ringling Bros. original winter quarters. As a bonus, Baraboo is home to current and retired circus people who appreciate the importance of the unique music created for their art form. We couldn’t ask for more enthusiastic and attentive audiences.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in Baraboo in July.
