Caffe Lena posted this picture and comment on Instagram after last night’s adventure. Sarah Craig, (executive director) was quite supportive! She had us take a photo in front of one of 3 pieces commissioned for the new space by artist Andrew Benincasa.
Two Very Unusual Shows!
Joziah & Tink will be performing as a DUO in February and March
These performances offer a rare opportunity for fans to take a peek “behind the Slambovian Curtain,” experiencing the inner workings and essential music-making of the band in a most intimate setting… many never or rarely performed songs from the past and the current album they are working on. As Joziah sez, “All the music without the musicianship!”

“The righteous, raucous, otherworldly rock of the Grand Slambovians lights up the Dance Tent and mainstage at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival every summer, washing away the cares of the year and leaving us more energized and full of harmony than we’d thought possible. Tonight we bring their festival fans the special, never-before-heard treat of an intimate evening with the King & Queen of Slambovia: guitar, accordion and flutes in hand, and a roomful of willing hearts all to themselves.” – Caffé Lena
*Located in Saratoga Springs, NY, Caffé Lena is widely recognized as the oldest continually operating folk music coffeehouse in the United States. It is an internationally renowned cultural center and an American treasure. Opened in 1960, the Caffè has helped to launch many of America’s best-loved songwriters including Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Ani DiFranco, Dar Williams and many more…
One day in the early 90’s, on a soul-searching walk in the east village of New York City, Joziah slid into a dark fog that made him think of the fragile founding member of Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett (Official) who jumped ship in the early days of the band. Some beautiful murky music swirled in his head and a song started coming down. Joziah wrote it as a personal letter to Syd, hoping it would reach him across the great separating seas of human consciousness… Happy Birthday, Syd!
What did you find Syd, did you find anything, at all?
We walked through the streets,
We were 50 foot tall,
When we called,
They couldn’t hear anything…
And so, we both let go,
Let the wind blow, flew off to better dreams.
But you, what did you do, how’d you fall through,
And lose control of you?
Well I don’t know what you were thinking
What the hell had you been drinking’?
I punched a hole in the bottom of hell,
Light shot up through it
And I said, “Oh well, there goes the neighborhood”.
Sing me an old song about something new,
Could’ya do? Hey, come on let’s try again.
It’s just you were looking’ when there was no find,
Lost your mind, but hey here it comes again…
Don’t go off in the snow,
Feeling’ so low, sold on a hopeless deal.
I know which way to go, what melts the snow,
Flowers will bloom again.
What did you find Syd, did you find anything, at all?
– Joziah Longo
