The Slambovian Circus of Dreams Celebrate Release of New Album at New York City's Webster Hall, April 12
A BOX OF EVERYTHING to be released on Red River Entertainment April 1
THE NEW YORK TIMES says of the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, "Their songs are imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism... they take the stage by storm!" They've been compared to an array of artists including the Waterboys, Jethro Tull, The Decemberists, a quirkier Tom Petty or Buffalo Tom with an exotic instrumental arsenal. The group's "dusty Americana ballads" may evoke Dylan, Cracker, or the Wallflowers, but then along comes one of those Pink Floyd-esque cinematic anthems with otherworldly slide mandolin, accordion and cello and suddenly you're in a whole different dimension! Although there are lots of comparisons, UK'S MAVERICK MAGAZINE calls them "Mightily impressive and hugely original."

A BOX OF EVERYTHING is The Slambovian Circus of Dreams' first new release with the Sony / RED-distributed Red River Entertainment. Due out April 1st, A BOX OF EVERYTHING is a compilation of "the greatest Slambovian hits you've never heard" newly remastered with three new studio cuts - the upbeat title track "A Box of EveryThing," Syd Barrett-inspired "A Very Unusual Head" and the anthemic "Alligators'"that justifies the Pink Floyd-esque descriptions of the band. The A BOX OF EVERYTHING CD Release Show at Webster Hall April 12th is a special one-time event, with special guests (who played on the album) performing with the band and a multimedia show created for the upcoming tour.
From Sleepy Hollow, New York, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams (AKA The Grand Slambovians) pioneered the alt-folk/americana genre totally under the radar for over a decade. Defying traditional rules of success (like changing their name at whim), they built their career from the ground up with a loyal fan base fueling and supporting them since open mic days in New York to national tours of the US, Canada and the UK.
"We've done very well as an independent band, but one of our goals has been to find someone who plays business like Sharkey plays guitar. We think that Bob Frank of Red River is that guy. We're inspired to have Bob (former president of E1 Music Worldwide/Koch Records) on board at this point in our career," says lead singer/songwriter Joziah Longo. "He's a force of nature, constantly building creative alliances with people that any band would love to have on their team."
Though approached by labels for years, in 2013 the band decided to dance with Red River having been among the first artists tapped to sign with their newly formed company.
The Slambovian Circus of Dreams are: Joziah Longo songwriter/vocals/guitar/ harmonica, Sharkey McEwen - guitar/mandolin, multi-instrumentalist Tink Lloyd - accordion, cello, uke, theremin, melodica and Eric Puente, percussion.
