Formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York, The Grand Slambovians (aka Slambovian Circus of Dreams) has pioneered the alt-folk/Americana genre totally under the radar for over a decade. Defying traditional rules of success they built their career from the ground up with a loyal fan base fueling and supporting them since their open-mic days in New York. Approached by major labels for years, in 2013 the band signed with Red River Entertainment with hopes of expanding the Slambovian territory.

The Grand Slambovians are: Joziah Longo — songwriter/vocals/guitar/harmonica; Sharkey McEwen — guitar/mandolin, multi-instrumentalist; Tink Lloyd — accordion/cello/ukelele/theremin, melodica; and Eric Puente — drums/percussion.
