Formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York in the late nineties, Gandalf Murphy & The Slambovian Circus of Dreams' live shows are where the real magic comes down, earning them critical acclaim as well as a fiercely loyal following. On stage they create an enchanting atmosphere, using traditional folk instruments, electric guitars, the occasional theremin and the distinctive singing and songwriting of Joziah Longo. Citing influences as diverse as Hank Williams, Dylan, Bowie, Incredible String Band and early Pink Floyd, the band's music is a mental roller coaster of whimsical and thought-provoking songs.
The Circus band includes founding members Sharkey McEwen (guitars, mandolin, backing vocals), Joziah Longo (lead vocals, guitars, harmonica), Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, flute, theremin), Tony Zuzulo (percussion), and touring members Chen Longo (bass) and Orien Longo (keyboards, backing vocals).
