Artist Bio

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd,” which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, and maybe even some Frank Zappa as well. This spring 2015 the band finishes a year long tour of the U.K., US and Canada where they spread their contagious brand of quirky Americana promoting the 2014 release of ‘A Box of Everything’ – their Sony Red distributed ‘greatest hits you never heard’. Now beginning work on their sixth studio album, “A Very Unusual Head”, Joziah Longo, (lead singer/songwriter for the band) describes the new bundle of songs as “A notebook of music about those go-to topics: meta-physical science and religion, poking fun with scorching humor at the state of the world, and a few anthemic beauties that will hopefully sweep everyone off their feet for a moment… the sound may be more adventurous this time – we’ve always had a bit of psychedelic grit that steals from our British cousins.” For the uninitiated, the band’s all over the map melodic avant folk conjures Tom Petty, Dinosaur Jr., and a fuller Buffalo Tom. Equal parts Washington Irving and Woodstock, the band taps a broad palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. Playing art school roots-rock, trad folk and a moody but uplifting americana, they possess an extensive instrumental arsenal (accordion, cello, mandolin, theremin). “The entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in Longo’s voice.”- The Big Issue, Scotland, U.K.

Together since the late 90’s where they met in art school, they settled in Sleepy Hollow, New York, and formed The Slambovian Circus of Dreams. The band has toured nationally and abroad since forming in 1998. Known for their electrifying live performances, and critically acclaimed original music, they have an extremely devoted fan base.

The band produces Halloween shows every year at moving locations – in 2010 they even brought their legendary Halloween show, ‘The Grand Slambovian Extraterrestrial Hillbilly~Pirate Ball’ to London’s Electric Ballroom AND New York City’s Gramercy Theater. “Saturday was a blast! I want you to know how great I thought your show was – you guys really made the Gramercy shine and ooze with your own personality.” – Harvey Leeds, Live Nation NYC (This year’s show will be at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.)

In 2010 bandleader and songwriter Longo, (known for tall tales and philosophizing) began work with Broadway theater legend Theodore Mann writing the musical score for 2 productions performed at Broadway’s Circle in The Square Theater in New York City from 2010-2012.

Soon unleashing their hauntingly signature songs on the world once again, the next album is scheduled for release in early 2016. The new songs should knit into the band’s classics like an old paisley quilt wrapped around a very large family. The ultimate DIY’ers, the band runs its own label and has previously released 4 critically acclaimed studio albums –“The Grand Slambovians”2010, ‘The Great Unravel’ (2008), 2004’s double-disc ‘Flapjacks from the Sky’, and ‘A Good Thief Tips His Hat‘ (1998).
