The Slambovian Circus of Dreams – back in the UK, ‘live’!
“Rootsy psychedelica” (Elmore magazine, USA)
“Mightily impressive, hugely original rook from the cool end of Americana” (Maverick, UK)
New York City based band The Slambovian Circus of Dreams are touring the UK in the first 2 weeks of July 2019.
Starting off as the almost heavy metal Ancestors in the 90’s the band have taken all that is good in folk, country and Americana with a twist of Pink Floyd flavouring. The Slambovians have melded their own unique sound that is at once familiar yet almost impossible to pigeon hole. The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have such an eclectic live stage presence that once seen, always hooked. Rubbing regular shoulders with some of the icons of American music the band have got some serious endorsees. Garth Hudson of The Band is a committed Slambovian disciple and fan describing frontman Joziah Longo as “An awesome songwriter”. Writers have quoted lyrical similarities to both Dylan and John Prine. A close listen to their many albums and well attended live shows would bear out that comparison.
Well known as a touring band throughout the North Eastern States, the popularity of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have earned them a virtual residency at many of the larger folk festivals.
Gary Lucas, outstanding guitarist with Jeff Buckley and early member of Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band is quoted saying "It was an honor and a privilege to play with the great psychedelic band The Slambovian Circus of Dreams". Had the stars aligned, Gary Lucas would have toured with the band given half a chance. Maybe next tour?
The New York Times says…. “They Take The Stage By Storm” And so they do!
