BATH — New York’s Slambovian Circus of Dreams bring their warm, raucous — and decidedly unsleepy — brand of “Punk Classical Hillbilly Pink Floyd” to the Chocolate Church for one night, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. The historic arts venue is at 804 Washington St.

The classic rock-steeped band from New York’s Hudson Valley has built a national following, with fans of their rootsy, radio-friendly sound stretching from coast to coast. One can hear strains of artists like Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young and Pink Floyd in their unique blend of psych rock and Americana-folk, painted in broad strokes with flashes of accordion, washes of cello, howls of harmonica and glittering notes of mandolin.

Their last release, “A Box of Everything,” pulls fan favorites from various titles in their catalog, and nearly every song sounds like a radio hit that should have happened. Original tunes feature waltzing violins, searing guitars and soaring Theremin, shades of George Harrison and 1970s “Laurel Canyon rock” (think Neil Young, Jackson Browne) blending with the group’s own singular musical vision and lyrical poetry. Songs like “Very Happy Now” and “The Trans-Slambovian Bipolar Express” exude a joyous kind of energy, while tunes like “Talkin’ to the Buddha” and “Light a Way” are shrouded in mystical, purpose-driven naval-gazing.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $24 at the door.
