Twiddle Announces Return As House Band For The Dan Patrick Show

first_imgVermont’s own jam quartet Twiddle has announced they will return as the house band for popular sports talk radio program The Dan Patrick Show on Friday, April 19th.Twiddle and Dan Patrick are no strangers to each other. In 2017, The Dan Patrick Show brought up the popular comparison between Phish and Twiddle in a unique segment, following up on a recent bit that aired a few weeks prior about Phish. Patrick introduced Twiddle by saying he was told they sounded like Phish, so he ultimately checked them out and said he liked them despite not liking jam bands in general. He astutely pointed out that the band has some Dave Matthews Band influences, and says “there’s some talent in there” while talking about them.The Dan Patrick Show Devotes A Full Segment To Discussing Twiddle [Watch]Following the 2017 segment, Dan Patrick tapped Twiddle as his backing band on April 19th, 2018. On Friday, the band will partake in some of the usual Dan Patrick skits along with performing a mix of covers and originals requested by Dan Patrick himself.The Dan Patrick Shows airs from 9 a.m. (EST) to 12 p.m. (EST) and can be found on DIRECTV’s Audience channel 239, over 300 radio stations around the country, SiriusXM channel 211, streamed on the SiriusXM app, and through Bleacher Report Live here.Following their appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Twiddle will head to Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Steel for a performance on Saturday, April 20th, along with previously announced special guest Robert Randolph for one of the band’s three sets. Additionally, fans at home are invited to join the fun with a free webcast via Relix. While the live stream is free, there will be a digital “Donation Button” so viewers can show their support for the band’s non-profit organization, the White Light Foundation.
