Explore the depths of Americana ‘one trippy tune at a time’ with New York’s Slambovian Circus of Dreams. Voted Chronogram Magazine’s “Best Band of 2022” for their rootsy rockin’ psychedelia, the Slambovians’ deep connection with audiences and exciting live shows are legendary. Dylan, Bowie, Incredible String Band, Syd Barrett and The Waterboys may flavor the musical mix, but the Slambovians’ musicianship and songwriting stand on its own.
With vocals “soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic” the resident shaman of Slambovia, lead singer Joziah Longo, is joined onstage by bandmates Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, mandolin, flute) and the brilliant guitar-slinging and mandolin-playing skills of Sharkey McEwen – creating a show that constantly evolves “with a little help from their friends,” — RJ McCarty (keys, bass, sax), Bob Torsello (bass), and Matthew Abourezk (drums).

Woodstock-tinged psychedelia, a hint of southern rock and solid songwriting elevates this version of Americana to new heights.
The band’s latest studio release, “A Very Unusual Head” is considered to be “their finest work to date.” – Rock’n’Reel Magazine, UK. Anthony Thistlethwaite is featured on the album, as well as singer-songwriter Dar Williams, who also covers the Slambovians’ “Sullivan Lane” on her new album. “I’ll Meet You Here.”

Tall Travis

Tall Travis 1 small

Tall Travis’s music was described by the Vermont Cynic as “a cacophony of folk instrumentation and engaging lyrics… well executed and lyrically compelling.” Fans of The Decemberists, The Head and the Heart, the Mountain Goats, and Trampled by Turtles will feel at home with Tall Travis’s material. Their original songs run the gamut, from pensive tracks contemplating the nature of life and death to loud, defiant rejections of the world’s negativity. The band’s recordings and live performances are characterized by strong harmonies and diverse instrumentation.

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams met Tall Travis at the Black Bear Americana Festival a few years back and have been scheming about a collaboration ever since. With Tall Travis’ strong Vermont ties, the Highland Center show seemed a perfect opportunity. This will be a unique and entertaining evening for fans of both bands and newcomers alike!
