The Slambovian Circus of Dreams
January 6, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Formed in Sleepy Hollow, NY in the late 1990s, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams has achieved near legendary status as a pioneering alt-folk/Americana jam band, while remaining on the fringes of the music industry. The Slambovians’ lively late-night musical extravaganzas have made the band Falcon Ridge Folk Festival favorites for more than a decade.
The music of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams has been variously described as “hillbilly-Floyd,” “folk-pop,” “alt-country, roots-rock,” and “surreal Americana” — a clear indicator of its singularly indescribable uniqueness. Dancing freely between all existing religious and philosophical mythologies, the music is uplifting, empowering, at times haunting, and a lot of fun. Elements of The Incredible String Band, Dylan, Bowie, Neil Young and the Decemberists are all part of the musical mix.
Fronted by songwriter Joziah Longo (vocals/guitar/harmonica), the band features guitarist/mandolin player Sharkey McEwen, multi-instrumentalist Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, uke, theremin, melodica); and Felipe Torres (percussion).
It’s impossible to capture in writing what the experience of seeing the Slambovians live is really like. Come see for yourselves.
