Roy's Hall presents "A Very Slambovian Christmas"

originally published: 11/29/2022


(BLAIRSTOWN, NJ) -- The Slambovian Circus of Dreams is a perennial favorite at Roy’s Hall and consistently sells out their annual "A Very Slambovian Christmas" show at Roy’s. The show returns to Roy’s Hall on Saturday, December 10 at 8:00pm.  

As known as The Grand Slambovians, the band pioneered the alt-folk/Americana genre, staying on the fringes of the music industry and under the radar while producing several critically acclaimed studio albums. Drawing on a set list comprised of traditional Christmas songs with a twist, a sprinkling of original holiday tunes, and a generous helping of non-traditional musical fare, it is guaranteed there will be something for everyone.

The Hudson Valley’s 'best band' brings Christmas songs "with a Slambovian twist" and rockin’ original holiday tunes for a fun "outside the box" and multi-media holiday show. A rootsy psychedelica that hints at Dylan, Bowie, Neil Young, The Beatles, Incredible String Band, Waterboys, and Wilco with the perfect mix of Christmas tradition and cool vibes for all ages and persuasions. Celebrate the holidays and have "A Very Slambovian Christmas"!

Tickets are $32 in advance/$37 at the door. Tickets are available for purchase online. Ages 16 + recommended.

Roy's Hall is located at 30 Main Street in Blairstown, New Jersey.

The band features Joziah, multi-instrumentalist Tink Lloyd, Sharkey on guitars, RJ McCarty (keys, bass, sax), Bob Torsello (bass), and Matthew Abourezk (drums).

The "Very Slambovian Christmas" show is guaranteed to "flip your switch" and spark the holiday spirit! 

"Like a snowball full of heart and unabashed beauty with songs of hope and resistant joy." -
