Upcoming Events for The Hip Abduction

The band's major focus pools Zimbabwean, Malian, and Caribbean rhythms. However, the lyrics and content remain distinctly North American at heart. A little Paul Simon, Zimbabwe's Oliver Mtukudzi, and roots reggae have most definitely played a role in shaping the sound of this band. Singer/songwriter David New keeps the theme moving from his years spent traveling South America. Hip Abduction events follow a world, rock, afro-beat, and reggae motif, with heavy emphasis placed on the dub-reggae-inspired bass lines of Chris Powers and the unique drumming techniques of Pat Hernly. Tight drumming coupled with a strong melodic groove structure is at the core of each tune. THA overlays jazz/funk style instrumental melodies combined with hip-shaking reggae and traditional West African instruments such as the kora and kamalengoni. Members have played and resided in the Caribbean, Micronesia, Ecuador, India, New Orleans, Philadelphia, NYC, Brazil, and DC.

Upcoming Events for Twiddle

Twiddle has started a frenzy on both coasts with complexities that conjure up Coltrane, Ranglin, and Zappa, yet still embracing the roots of Jam traditions. Finally a group of virtuoso musicians who not only understand climactic build and release, but deliver their intricate compositions night after night to jazz purists and screaming fans, all at the same time. You've got a true cross-over band when parents and their college-age children all go to the same show. Twiddle is a sound that defiantly weaves and dodges through genres. It's three-dimensional music. You can see it from all sides, and even serve it to your guests. It's Twiddle. Tasty.
