Peridoni, a jam band from Cincy, opened the show on the Tavern Side.  They sounded tight and put on an excellent set.  I had a delicious brisket sandwich from the kitchen as I watched them wow the audience.

Twiddle started up on the Main Stage in the band room, the other room in Woodlands Tavern.  At first glance, Twiddle looked like one of the most natural and musically cohesive groups I had seen in quite some time.  The bassist and keyboardist were trading solos during one of the earlier songs in the first set.

What this band seemed to be was a band of brothers, a group of real dudes who are exeptionaly talented and love to jam.  They even had custom made action figures on top of the bass and guitar half stacks.  The show was great and the place was packed to the gills.  I’d love to check out Twiddle at a festival or bigger venue.  It seems as though they were a tad big to play Woodlands.  But playing to a packed room of screaming fans can have it’s perks.

Twiddle is a four piece jam band from Vermont.  They had already toured much of the Northeast before graduating College.  They are scheduled for a lot of Festivals this Summer.   They mix sounds of jazz, jam, rap, reggae, soul, and folk to meld eclectic sets of music into epic live shows.  They’re a fun band to watch, and their sound is incredible.
