Slamboree is a new collective of musicians, circus performers, daredevils and entertainers. Bass-driven beats mix with live orchestra, guitars, percussion, loops, visuals, brass, accordion, pyrotechnics and circus. The genres bounce around breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, dub, techno and electro fused with Balkan, folk, and ‘gypsy’ flavours… all original and all live.
‘If youre into Gypsy, Balkan circus bands crossed with wobbly bassline rave then check out this lot… Going off!!!’
‘An unlikely cross between traditional Balkan music, a circus, and a full on rave… the energy, juggling hats, knives, brightly coloured costumes and just generally having a laugh on stage worked brilliantly. Slamboree are a perfect festival band!’
Embracing: ‘all aspects of theatricality in a brimming blend of hillbilly-folk, funk and reggae styles, producing a joyfully haphazard sound with a manifesto to entertain. A tendency towards mischievous musical madness, resulting in a collection of songs that cross genres and styles with complete abandon. Their first love will always remain funk and ska. Check out the new video ‘Devil Drives’.
