Joziah and Tink perform with special “co-conspirators,” including Mimi Sun Longo (MSL) and Chen Longo (former Slambovian bassist). 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 creative core of the band in a relaxed setting with artists and friends.
The evening will also be a mini-showcase of the outstanding songwriters that recorded at Big Blue Studios in 2018, including engineer Dio Tadin and keyboard player Tristan Tadin, who played and toured with us all year. Join us for a very special night, celebrating the new songwriters in the tribe!

We’re very excited to play in this beautifully renovated theater that dates back to the 1880’s. There’s a lot of history here behind the modern and comfortable renovations.
