Enjoy a performance of moody, electrifying tunes
PUTNEY- Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of acoustic and electric Americana music from Sleepy Hollow, NY, by The Slambovian Circus of Dreams (aka The Grand Slambovians) on Saturday, February 22 at 7:30 pm.
The music of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams has been described as “hillbilly-Floyd,” “folk-pop,” “alt-country, roots-rock” and “surreal Americana.”
The Slambovian Circus of Dreams is Joziah Longo (lead vocals, guitars, harmonica), Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, uke, theremin, melodica), Sharkey McEwen (guitars, mandolin, backing vocals), Felipe Torres (drums, percussion), and Bob Torsello (bass). Bandleader and songwriter Longo, (known for tall tales and philosophizing) has written two musicals with Broadway legend Theodore Mann, headlined at Carnegie Hall, and was the first American musician invited to perform in mainland China in the early ‘90s.
Known for electrifying live performances of moody but upbeat original alt-roots rock music, they have a devoted and ever-expanding fan base. In 2010 they brought their legendary Halloween show, “The Grand Slambovian Extraterrestrial Hillbilly~Pirate Ball” to London’s Electric Ballroom and NYC’s Gramercy Theater.
Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill. Tickets are $22 in advance or $26 at the door. For tickets or more information call (802) 387-0102 or visit www.nextstagearts.org.
