A MUST- SEE EVENT!
“The cool end of Americana” – Maverick Magazine, UK
Sellersville Theater welcomes back New York’s Slambovian Circus of Dreams Friday, April 7th for a show featuring all the “hits” from their catalog as well as a “sneak peak” of the new songs from their next release “A Very Unusual Head” due out later this year.
AKA as ‘The Grand Slambovians’, the band has achieved folk-legend status as pioneers of the alt-folk/Americana genre, while remaining on the fringes of the music industry creating the ‘Slambovian Nation’ of fans here and abroad. Their music, alternately described as a “hillbilly-Floyd,” “folk-pop,” or “surreal Americana” walks the tightrope between existing religious and philosophical mythologies. The songs themselves appeal to a greater human-ness, sometimes empowering – at times darkly haunting, but always engaging with the wry wit of lead singer Longo at the helm. Elements of Dylan, Bowie, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Incredible String Band, Waterboys, and the Decemberists are all part of the musical mix. Led by Longo, the band creates an otherworldly connection with audiences. “They’re not just a band, that’s like saying the Bible is just a book…” – Fairfield County Weekly
“Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism… they take the stage by storm!” – The NY Times

“Joziah is an awesome songwriter!” – Garth Hudson, The Band
“9 out of 10 – Love at first spin!” – Americana UK
“Soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic, the entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in Longo’s voice.” – The Big Issue, Scotland, UK
