OXFORD – This Saturday, Oct 3 beginning at 7:30 p.m., 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to welcome The Grand Slambovians back to its quaint stage in the heard of downtown Oxford.
Singled out as Hudson Valley Magazine's “Band of the Year,” The Grand Slambovians – or Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams as they’re otherwise known – routinely creates an enchanting atmosphere wherever they perform by wielding traditional folk instruments, tasty electric guitar and distinctive singing and songwriting.
The Slambovians’ pioneered the alt-folk/Americana genre. Their melodic avant-folk conjures a quirkier Tom Petty or fuller Buffalo Tom with an exotic instrumental arsenal. If you like Dylan, Bowie, The Decemberists, you’ll find a lot to love about this band which features an otherworldly slide mandolin, accordion, cello and styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems.
