Twiddle kept the jams flowing at the College Street Music Hall last weekend, hitting the famed New Haven, CT venue for two nights on Friday and Saturday. The band had some fun on night one with members of Dopapod and Kung Fu, and the musical magic continued with a great second showing in Connecticut.
Due to an illness, keyboardist Ryan Dempsey was unable to perform, and Josh Dobbs from Cats Under The Stars filled in for the entire night. The show also featured Adrian Tramontano of Kung Fu, who added percussion to the entire performance as well. Twiddle’s core members, Mihali, Zdenek, and Brook Jordan, were only amplified by the new energy on stage, opening with “White Light” and keeping the set rocking throughout.
The band also welcomed their fair share of special guests on night two, including Teddy Midnight guitarist Wiley Griffin at points during both sets. The West End Blend Horns also made an appearance, joining in on “Polluted Beauty” and “Lost In The Cold” at the end of set one. Finally, Kung Fu bassist Chris DeAngelis appeared in the show-closing “Latin Tang,” even getting in to a bass battle with Zdenek Gubb. When bassists battle, we all win.
