Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of acoustic/electric Americana music from Sleepy Hollow, NY by The Slambovian Circus of Dreams (aka The Grand Slambovians).  Singer/songwriter Russell Kaback opens the concert.

The music of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams has been described as “hillbilly-Floyd,” “folk-pop,” “alt-country, roots-rock,” and “surreal Americana” - a clear indicator of its singularly indescribable uniqueness.  The quartet taps a broad palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems.  Dancing freely between all existing religious and philosophical mythologies, featuring an exotic instrumental arsenal in addition to standard rock regalia, the music is uplifting, empowering and a lot of fun.

The Grand Slambovians are Joziah Longo (lead vocals, guitars, harmonica), Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, uke, theremin, melodica), Sharkey McEwen (guitars, mandolin, backing vocals) and Eric Puente (percussion).  Bandleader and songwriter Longo, (known for tall tales and philosophizing) has written two musicals with Broadway legend Theodore Mann, headlined at Carnegie Hall and was the first American musician invited to perform in mainland China in the early 90's ending a decade-long ban on Western music.

Joziah, Tink, Sharkey and Eric have toured nationally and abroad since forming Gandalf Murphy & The Slambovian Circus of Dreams in Sleepy Hollow, NY in 1998.  Known for electrifying live performances and strong original music, they have a devoted and ever expanding fan base.  In 2010 they brought their legendary Halloween show, 'The Grand Slambovian Extraterrestrial Hillbilly~Pirate Ball' to London's Electric Ballroom and NYC's Gramercy Theater.  Recently, they have performed at numerous festivals including Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Celtic Connections (UK), Philadelphia Folk Festival, Xponential, High Sierra, Rhythm and Roots, Green River, Strawberry Festival, Bliss Festival, Roots on The River, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and Glastonbury Festival (UK).  The band has released five critically acclaimed studio albums - “A Box of Everything (2014), “The Grand Slambovians” (2012), “The Great Unravel” (2008), 2004's double-disc “Flapjacks from the Sky” and “A Good Thief Tips His Hat” (1998).

“Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana.” – MAVERICK, UK
“Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism… they take the stage by storm!” – The NY Times

Russell Kaback’s funky island beats and sweet, soulful grooves melt into rootsy reggae and heartfelt folk music.  The Quebec native moves audiences with an uplifting and poetic tapestry woven with hope and strength.
