“Like a snowball full of heart and unabashed beauty with songs of hope and resistant joy." - Jambase.com
From the snow-filled highlands of upstate New York, The Slambovian Underground (The Slambovian Circus of Dreams sans rhythm section) bring a show full of holiday songs guaranteed to 'flip your switch' and turn on the holiday spirit! Christmas songs “with a Slambovian twist” and sprinkles of rockin’ original holiday tunes for a slightly ‘outside the box’ holiday show. The perfect mix of Christmas tradition and cool vibes for all ages and persuasions. Celebrate the holidays and have ‘A Very Slambovian Christmas’!
Founding band members Joziah Longo, Tink Lloyd and Sharkey McEwen appear as a trio for this holiday show of traditional/favorite Christmas songs alongside original Slambovian holiday tunes. 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.
Called everything from ‘hillbilly-Pink Floyd’ to ‘folk-pop’ to ‘surreal americana’, New York’s Slambovian Circus of Dreams “is a riveting, mesmerizing, crazy, amazing machine of music.” – Chronogram Magazine. A rootsy psychedelica that MAVERICK MAGAZINE calls “Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana,” their melodic avant-folk conjures with an exotic instrumental arsenal and palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. The Slambovians charm from the first note with “Great songs and a whole lotta heart!” – DJ Meg Griffin, SiriusXM.
Passim acknowledges that we stand on the traditional land of the Massachusett Peoples, and want to honor their land and people past and present.
