Explore the depths of Americana ‘one trippy tune at a time’ with New York’s Slambovian Circus of Dreams. Voted Chronogram Magazine’s “Best Band of 2022” for their rootsy rockin’ psychedelia, the Slambovians’ deep connection with audiences and exciting live shows are legendary. Dylan, Bowie, Incredible String Band, Syd Barrett and The Waterboys may flavor the musical mix, but the Slambovians’ musicianship and songwriting stand on its own.
With vocals “soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic” the resident shaman of Slambovia, lead singer Joziah Longo, is joined onstage by bandmates Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, mandolin, flute) and the brilliant guitar-slinging and mandolin-playing skills of Sharkey McEwen – creating a show that constantly evolves “with a little help from their friends,” — RJ McCarty (keys, bass, sax), Bob Torsello (bass), and Matthew Abourezk (drums).
Woodstock-tinged psychedelia, a hint of southern rock and solid songwriting elevates this version of Americana to new heights. The band’s latest studio release, A Very Unusual Head is considered to be “their finest work to date.” – Rock’n’Reel Magazine, UK.
‘The Waterboys’ Anthony Thistlethwaite is featured on A Very Unusual Head, and singer-songwriter Dar Williams, who also covers the Slambovians’ “Sullivan Lane” on her latest album.
