Vermont-natives Twiddle hosted their annual Friendsgiving shows at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y. on Friday and Saturday night. The quartet was joined by special guests Keller Williams, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Jake Brownstein and Scott Hannay.
The band, which consists of Mihali Savoulidis (lead vocals, guitar), Ryan Dempsey (keys, vocals), Brook Jordan (drums, vocals) and Zdenek Gubb (bass, vocals), kicked off Saturday night with “Zazu’s Flight” followed by “Doinkinbonk!!!” Twiddle then rolled into “Too Many Puppies” before throwing it back to “Doinkinbonk!!!” The set concluded with guest Keller Williams joining in for “Best Feeling.”
The second set opened with a jammy flow of “Apples” into “Every Soul” followed by “Apples” reprised. “Lost In The Cold” included guest guitarist Brandon “Taz” Niederaue to close the evening’s set. The band quickly took the stage once more for an “All Along The Watchtower” encore with both Scott Hannay and Brandon “Taz” Niederaue.
Saturday’s show began with a sweet jam of “Blueberry Tumble” into “GooBerry Jelly” followed by “Blueberry Tumble” once more. The band continued into “Daydream Farmer” with a “Find Your Cloud” tease.
The last set included a debut cover of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” with guest Scott Hannay and Jake Brownstein followed by fan-favorite “Brown Chicken Brown Cow” with a “Zazu’s Flight” reprise from night-one. Finally, the two-night run ended with a “Beethoven and Greene” encore.
