🎄’A Very Slambovian Christmas’ Tour 2019

December is full of dates for the ‘Very Slambovian Christmas’ shows. If you’ve never been to one of these, expect Christmas songs “with a Slambovian twist” and sprinkles of original holiday tunes, a slightly ‘outside the box’ holiday show. These shows are fan favorites and tickets go fast. Share the holiday season with us…
“Like a snowball full of heart and unabashed beauty with songs of hope and resistant joy.” – Jambase.com
🎄MERRY EVERYTHING🎄

DECEMBER TOUR DATES:

Thursday, December 5 – Albany, NY
We kick off the Christmas season with a show at Skyloft. This is a brand new venue for us and we’re very excited about the possibilities here –
18 x 10 video wall for our Christmas projections and full lighting capabilities. This should be a very immersive, fun show!  Tickets HERE.

Friday, December 6 – Blairstown, NJ
We return to Roy’s Hall – the perfect venue for a Christmas show in historic Blairstown, NJ. This one usually sells out early, so don’t wait to get tickets! Tickets HERE.

Friday, December 13 – Cambridge, MA
The iconic Club Passim is the setting for this Slambovian Underground Christmas show. The Underground is a trio consisting of Joziah, Sharkey, and Tink. This show offers a rare opportunity to take a peek behind the “Slambovian Curtain,” to experience the inner workings and essential music-making of the original creative core of the band in a relaxed setting with artists and friends.

Friday, December 20 – Jim Thorpe, PA

We promise to decorate it with a fantastic full band show. Tickets HERE.

Saturday, December 21 – Beacon, NY
The traditional big “hometown” Christmas show at the Towne Crier is always a special one with a surprise or two – a new song or a guest artist here and there. Come see what this year has in store! Tickets HERE.

BRAND NEW CHRISTMAS EP!!

Just in time for Christmas!! BRAND NEW EP featuring five Christmas originals, including “Snow” and “When Christmas Comes” (aka the Pirate Christmas Song.) 

Physical CD’s available to ship Tuesday, December 18th – and they include a FREE DIGITAL DOWNLOAD AVAILABLE NOW! ORDER  HERE

This EP is a unique collection of 5 original holiday songs by the Slambovians from Christmases past and present. ‘Pirate Xmas’ is the most recent crowd favorite played at our Christmas shows. ‘Snow’ is a real tour-de-force, thrilling as a sleigh ride on a starry night (a timeless performance from our early days in New York)! These two songs were the catalyst for the creation of this EP, like a collection of your favorite Christmas ornaments on the holiday tree!

MORE MERCH! We restocked everything for the season. Check out our Beez and Translambovian thermals, Beez Tees, and our brand new BiPolar Express BLANKETS! Everything can be found at our ONLINE STORE.

2nd Bowie Tribute Show! World Café Live June 4

Back by popular demand! Last month’s Bowie Tribute Show at the Towne Crier was so awesome, we had to do it again! Where else could we do it but in Philly, “the city of brotherly love”? See you all at World Cafe Live, Saturday, June 4th for a night honoring our “brother”…WCLJUNE4_BOWIE
As history has proven, every Slambovian World Café Live show stands the test of time (real, imagined, Slambovian) and this – the band’s last area performance before finishing their next album and heading out to enchant the UK territories, promises to be even more so, oh-by-jingo.

   In their many mythic ch-ch-ch-changes, these homegrown “Heroes” have paid their props to Dylan, The Fabs, Syd Barrett and Joey Ramone, just to name a few. On Saturday, June 4th, Philly native Joziah Longo and band 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, “A Very Unusual Head” and a host of Slambovian classics with guest drummer extraordinaire, Rick Quintanal (of Crystal Cymbology) at the helm! Imagine all this at our first summer extravaganza at Philly’s World Café Live, “The Slambovians Who Fell To Earth”.

   This is what’s going down at World Café Live, Saturday June 4th, oh-by-jingo. Got your tickets yet?

The Slambovians Who Fell To Earth
Saturday, June 4th, 2016 8 PM
World Cafe Live
3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

TICKETS: 215-222-1400
