The Slambovian Circus of Dreams English Dates

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams emerge from the misty hills of Sleepy Hollow, New York State. Playing an utterly unique blend of rock and roll, folk, and quirky Americana, they have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd”, which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, and maybe a dash of Zappa.

The Circus’ live shows are where the real magic comes down, earning them critical acclaim as well as a fiercely loyal following. On stage they create an enchanting atmosphere, using traditional folk instruments, electric guitars, the occasional theremin and the distinctive singing and songwriting of Joziah Longo.

Citing influences as diverse as Hank Williams, Dylan, Bowie, Incredible String Band and early Pink Floyd, the band’s music is a mental roller coaster of whimsical and thought-provoking songs. The band comprise of Joziah Longo (vocals/guitar/harmonica) Sharkey McEwen (guitar/mandolin) Tink Lloyd (accordion/cello) and Felipe Torres (drums/percussion).

A rootsy psychedelica that ‘Maverick Magazine’ called “Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana” their melodic avant-folk conjures with an exotic instrumental arsenal and a palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. The Slambovian’s charm from the first note with thought provoking lyrics – creating intrigue and attraction for their audiences.

Formed in Sleepy Hollow New York over a decade ago they have pioneered the alt-folk circuit staying on the fringes of the music industry. Winning support from indie radio and press since their inception aided by fans that fuelled their career from the ground up to bring them international status. Having headlined major music festivals and venues across the USA, Canada and the UK this band now has a loyal and devoted following.

The music of the band 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, and a lot of fun.
