Holiday Highlight…

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!

ttownemailReplicating 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

Slambovians Headline Cold Spring 4th of July: Review

uncleslamWanted 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!”

“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

Stephen Hawking – He’s A “Force of Nature”

Breaking News! ”21 Songs For The 21st Century”

Since the start of 2015, Joziah has been pushed by his imaginary friends to release “21 Songs For The 21st Century” in an effort to get some of the endless flow of songs that keep coming down to him out to you, our beloved Slambovians.

These songs, he thinks, will be “in the rough” –  live video performances of various songs that he currently or recently has been working on. There may be songs from the new Slambovian Circus of Dreams album (possibly due in September,) the Joziah and The Remnant project, from the musical he’s working on called “Very Unusual Heads” or from the China project he’s been writing called “The Costume of Ch’ien” or possibly from something he doesn’t even know he’s doing yet.

Anyway, it should be an adventure of some sort or another or maybe it won’t happen at all. So stay tuned…
He may even post a song a week at times – but we’ll see…
(It should be faster than he’s previously got songs out up to this point in time, yay!)
If nothing else happens, here’s this – the first of  “21 Songs For The 21st Century”:
Stephen Hawking (Force of Nature) – Song #1

#1web

(Shot live on the stage in the living room with two iPhones and some swirly lights.)
“Force of Nature” is a song inspired by the nature of the universe and its effect on brilliant scientists like Stephen Hawking. It is the first release of 21 Songs for the 21st Century. The biopic of Mr Hawking, ‘The Theory of Everything’ is nominated for ‘Best Picture’ and should be bringing home a few Oscars from the 2015 Academy Awards Feb. 22, 2015. Hats off to you Mr. Hawking!
