The Grand Slambovians

Friday, May 24, 2013 8:00p
Caffe Lena Saratoga Springs, NY

The music of The Grand Slambovians has been variously described as "hillbilly-Floyd," "folk-pop," "alt-country, roots-rock," and "surreal Americana;" a clear indicator of its singularly indescribable uniqueness. Dancing freely between all existing religious and philosophical mythologies, the music is uplifting, empowering, and a lot of fun.

Aug 03, 2012 - Slambovia on The Grand Slambovians
The Grand Slambovians

The Grand Slambovians AKA Gandalf Murphy must be seen live to be fully appreciated. And though their studio albums are full of wild brilliance and dynamic hippie soul, until you've survived the Alice-in-Wonderland, full-frontal assault of a live show, you just haven't had the full experience. They've been called "the hillbilly Pink Floyd," which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, and maybe even some Syd Barrett as well. For the uninitiated, the band's all over the map melodic avant-folk is equal parts Washington Irving, Woodstock, British Invasion tapping into a broad palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. "Simply one of the finest American bands..." - All Music Guide "Love at first spin!" - Americana UK "Mightily impressive and hugely original" - Maverick Magazine, UK "Super AND Natural... I love this band!" - WXPN Radio,PA "Lively songs that are imbued with mysticism." - New York Times
