THE TWISTERS

COME OUT SWINGIN'

2009-08-17

The Twisters remain one of Canada’s hottest exports. Mixing west coast jump blues, rockabilly, reggae and gospel the Twisters can really shake things up. The CD opens with their signature swing sound that will fill the dance floor after the first note. The track “Doghouse” combines western swing with rockabilly and sounds like a meeting of the Love Dogs and the Stray Cats. “Take My Own Advice” departs from the jump swing sounds and lays down a cool reggae beat. “I Refuse To Get Old” could be many of our theme song and showcases the talents of Dave Horel on harmonica. It will be easy to make comparisons of Dave to Rod Piazza or Magic Dick throughout this entire release. “Party Goin’ On” has a full blown high energy gospel sound to it and will have you in the aisles in a full sweat begging for more. The Twisters have truly Come Out Swingin’ on this disc and blew this kid away. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
