Join us Saturday night January 30th at The River Club Music Hall, in Scituate Massachusetts. It’s our first time playing this venue, looks like a very cool place. Come warm your hearts by the Slambovian fire!
We have a few surprises up our sleeve, some of the upcoming shows may have new faces onstage as we begin working on songs for the #newalbum!!!
For our NYC friends…
Join us January 15th at The Iridium in New York City for our “APAP Artist Showcase” presented by The Roots Agency. (APAP stands for Association of Performing Arts Presenters, a networking convention for performers and arts venues across the world.) The Slambovians are opening the showcase up to their fans, as well as music industry friends. Tickets are $25. Showtime is 10 PM. TICKETS: http://tinyurl.com/slam-iridium
Of note: New Slambovian drummer Felipe Torres (Carmine Appice’s SLAMM, Davy Jones) will be doing his first New York show with the band at the Iridium performance.
The Iridium is at 1650 Broadway in Manhattan, and near the B,D,E, N,R,W, 1 trains. (Note: There is a $15 food and drink minimum per person.)
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!
Replicating 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
A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-Presentation

Wanted to share this review of Saturday’s performance with everyone from one of the head organizers…
“The highlight, of course was the music. The entire lineup was perfect. But I have to say, our Headliners (the Slambovians) delivered one of the most astounding sets I’ve seen in the 10 years I’ve been following them. They brought the entire crowd to life for over two hours, making it look easy. The after-Fireworks set was so perfect, I’ll never forget the sight of watching West Point’s fireworks behind us while the Band played “Over the Rainbow”; I felt like I was in a freakin’ Spielberg movie LOL!”
The Faeries of Fernwood Forest will be at this weekends festival deep in the woods along with other creatures. The Slambovians perform 2 times on Saturday – 5:00 pm on the Star Stage and a late night set at the Masquerade Ball for those who are camping. Come as you are – finding costumes & masks there is part of the fun.

“Who stretched the elephant’s legs, I bet it was you…” a sneak peek of Joziah’s new song, “Solve It All Dālí”. Salvadore Dalí is and was a great inspiration to Joziah as a young man studying art at the Parthenon in Philadelphia. Here’s a rough version of his tribute to Dali which will be on the next Slambovian Circus of Dreams album… Happy Birthday Salvadore Dalí – (solve-it-all daily). May 11, 2015.
Hey everybody, as many of you know our long time friend Philadelphia DJ and folk radio legend Gene Shay has retired from WXPN.
As one of Gene’s favorite acts, we were asked to send a video greeting for his tribute party last month at Ardmore Music Hall.
We heard it got some laughs at the show, so here’s our ‘bon voyage’ to Gene… – Tink
