Bowie Tribute show in Beacon, NY – April 23

starmanFBblu

As history has proven, every Slambovian Towne Crier show stands the test of time (real, imagined, Slambovian) and this — the Band’s last area performance before finishing their forthcoming album and heading out to enchant the Northeast and UK territories, promises to be even more so, oh by jingo.

In their many mythic ch-ch-ch-changes, our homegrown “Heroes” have paid their props to Dylan, The Fabs, Sid Barrett and Joey Ramone, just to name a few. On Saturday, April 23, at their home base, the Slambovians will pay extended homage to a man they encountered professionally and we all knew — David Bowie — as only they can. Think “Life On Mars?” “After All” “Black Country Rock” And while you’re imagining a Slambovian Bowie fest, imagine a few sneak peeks at the new album alongside a host of Slambovian classics. Imagine all this and the first Hudson Valley show welcoming new powerhouse drummer Felipe Torres. TICKETS

Holiday Highlight…

The very last of our Christmas shows was December 19th, close to home in Beacon, NY. Joziah was joined onstage late in the show with youngest daughter Ali, who shined in a performance of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”. Now we know why they call it The Towne Crier … not a dry eye in the house.  Also wowing the crowd (and almost upstaging dad) was guitarist-in-training Ben McEwen, Sharkey’s son who joined us in a smokin’ version of “I wish It Was Christmas”.   Thanks to everyone for making our holidays merry and bright! Happy New Year 2016!

ttownemailReplicating the music of The Band is a tall order. But interpreting the music of The Band is an art. That is what The Weight has been doing since forming a few years ago after the passing of Levon Helm. Oft compared to The Band since its inception (Garth Hudson being one if its earliest fans), The Slambovian Circus of Dreams will appear as special guests with The Weight at Tarrytown Music Hall, Friday November 20th. “Joziah is an awesome songwriter.” – Garth Hudson, The Band
THE WEIGHT features:
Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante from The Band
Brian Mitchell and Byron Isaacs of the Levon Helm Band
Marty Grebb – worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel of The Band

It’s our pleasure to announce that we will be the featured artists this week on WHYY-TV’s Emmy Award winning music program, On Tour. Filmed live on location at local venues in and around Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, On Tour features intimate artist interviews woven into the musical performance. Associate Producer Lisa Gray pulled some pretty interesting nuggets from Joziah’s brain (and was also able to score some childhood photos from the family archives!)

The broadcast will feature our August 20, 2015 show at Steelstack’s Musikfest Cafe in Bethlehem, PA.  and will air Thursday, October 29 at 10:00 pm, with a rebroadcast Sunday, November 1 at noon. If you don’t live in the WHYY viewing area, an archive of the program will be posted on the On Tour website after the broadcast date.
