Just took off for the UK!

In addition to Joziah, Tink and Sharkey, we have a new rhythm section for this tour – two lifelong Slambovian fans: bassist RJ MacCárthaigh & veteran rock drummer Matt Abourezk (drummer with the band Thin White Rope). We just finished the new EP in time for the tour and it will be available at our shows.

“We thought it was time to go visit the Queen on the 4th and let her know we’re doing alright!” – Joziah says…

‘The Never Was’

We finished the final mix of a song for the new album on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. ‘The Never Was’, a tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on that day, and throughout the ages. Here is a small part of it for you to hear…
A special thank you to producer Dio Tadin, who has been at our side and a great ally in the Slambovian Culture Wars, down in the creative trenches – that’s what doing an album requires!
We’ll be playing ‘The Never Was’ and other new ones at at this weekend’s shows – spread the word!
Rams Head On Stage, Thursday June 13 – Annapolis, MD
The Tin Pan, Friday June 14 – Richmond, VA

For you northerners, see you at the Clearwater Festival in the Dance Tent Sunday…

This Weekend in MA – Iron Horse June 1st, Passim June 2nd

This weekend the band is at Northampton’s Iron Horse Music Hall Saturday June 1, 7:00 pm. Then on to Cambridge for a Slambovian Underground show at Club Passim on Sunday, June 2, 7:30 pm. For more info about the trio show, see below…


Band members Joziah Longo, Tink Lloyd and Sharkey McEwen appear in a limited number of engagements this year as The Slambovian Underground – a trio that performs a full complement of Slambovian standards plus some special material rarely heard at full band shows. Longo’s original and compelling songwriting combine with McEwen’s engaging electric guitar work and Lloyd’s multi-instrumental touches in an intimate setting.  These shows 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.

The Slambovian Underground had their debut performance at Club Passim in Cambridge in December 2018 and were immediately booked for a return engagement in June! Don’t miss out on a chance to hear this format that is getting a lot of buzz right now!
