Iron Horse Presents: The Grand Slambovians

January 3, 2015 - 7:00 pm at Iron Horse Music Hall
20 Center St

“Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism… they took the stage by storm!” – NY Times
“Mightily impressive and hugely original.” -Maverick Magazine, UK
“Simply one of the finest American bands out there . . .” – All Music

The Grand Slambovians formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York over a decade ago. The Grand Slambovians (aka The Slambovian Circus of Dreams) formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York over a decade ago. Pioneers of the alt-folk/americana genre, their melodic avant-folk conjures a quirkier Tom Petty or a fuller Buffalo Tom featuring an other-worldly slide mandolin, accordion, cello and styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. Headlining major music festivals and venues across the U.S., Canada and the UK, they built their career from the ground up with a loyal fan base supporting them all the way…  Rightly voted ‘Best Band’ three consecutive years by Hudson Valley Magazine where they reside, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams are equal parts Washington Irving and Woodstock, Zappa, the Who, The Beatles, The Band, and their fiercely independent selves, presenting not only quirky Americana and Zen-like anthems, but a universe entirely of their own making.
