UK Tour 2019 – Step Outta Time

Award-winning videographer Matt Abourezk was invited to play drums for a summer 2019 10-show UK tour with his all-time favorite band, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams. While on tour, he set his camera up at a few of the shows and videotaped the performances. This song from the tour is “Step Outta Time”. (Audio is from the Linton Festival, and video from five different venues in the UK). Matt says “Special thanks to the Slambovians, John Warner (for graciously providing some extra video footage of the Linton Festival) and to my buddy, the incredible RJ Mac Cárthaigh who also shared this tour experience with me as the UK Bass player.”

‘Kickin’ Up A Soundstorm’ – New Band Documentary!

This weekend at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival we’re celebrating the release of ‘Kickin’ Up A Soundstorm’ – a new music documentary that features us with everyone in the Dance Tent last summer, The Immortal Jellyfish of Slambovia, a bit of band history shared for the first time – and some really cool interviews!!! This new DVD and our new UK EP will be a Festival Exclusive!!! A Victor Moore Film. #newmusic #festival #beez #musicdocumentary

Kickin’ Up A Sound Storm (Promo) from Showset Productions on Vimeo.

Liner Notes: A music/documentary by filmmaker Victor Moore capturing the performance of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams at New York’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2018 in the Dance Tent. Interviews with founding members of the band reveal the never heard history of the band from the beginning. The story is enhanced by fans, friends and a performance that caught the ‘lightning in a bottle’ – that elusive magic that comes when the audience and performers become one in a transcendant timeless moment. Welcome to Slambovia!

This weekend the band is at Northampton’s Iron Horse Music Hall Saturday June 1, 7:00 pm. Then on to Cambridge for a Slambovian Underground show at Club Passim on Sunday, June 2, 7:30 pm. For more info about the trio show, see below…


Band members Joziah Longo, Tink Lloyd and Sharkey McEwen appear in a limited number of engagements this year as The Slambovian Underground – a trio that performs a full complement of Slambovian standards plus some special material rarely heard at full band shows.
