Indi rock band Twin Peaks played new music from their album Wild Onion to the sold out crowd at Rafters in Rossland on Saturday, March 7. The barely legal band members; front man Cadien Lake
James, Clay Frankel on guitar, Jack Dolan the bassist and drummer Connor Brodner really put on a show getting in amongst the action on the crowded dance floor and strumming away on their knees. These musicians are a must see when performing in the flesh and are even more amazing live then when recorded.
Singer-songwriters James, Frankel and Dolan shared the spotlight on vocals and played to one another’s strengths as Connor kept things moving with a steady beat and even splitting one of the drums!
When asked about a song he wrote titled Fade Away Dolan said “It’s about looking at life and smashing it in the face until you break your hand. I hope you play this during your most epic of battles in this world.”
The musicians have been playing together since they were in elementary school and the chemistry these guys have enabled the audience to connect with their limbs and shake their Strawberry Smoothie on the dance floor.
The band played after the local opening act John Lee Hooker. The next tour stop for the Chicago based gents is Sioux Falls, South Dakota before moving on to Oregon and California.
