Adrian Tramontano

December is for holidays, and this year was no exception. The rising jam rock band Dogs In A Pile put on an outstanding, sold-out show at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ on December 16, 2023, that included a visit by Mr. Grinch, as well as some stellar covers. This performance was part of a two-night stand at the legendary Jersey Shore venue in honor of the December holidays. Percussionist Adrian Tramontano (Twiddle) sat in for the second set.

As the sun sets on the remaining dates in the Twiddle ledger, the band continues to put on inspiring shows, starting with the first night of the Levitt Pavilion in Westport, CT on July 21, 2023. This cozy, lush environment fostered the perfect place for the quintet to perform their magic. Both Mihali and Friends and Kung Fu opened, giving a definite festival vibe.

No moments are ever guaranteed in life. No band has felt that harder than Lotus recently, having lost their longtime percussionist Chuck Morris, along with his son Charley, in a tragic kayaking accident on March 16, 2023. The remaining members of Lotus, along with many friends, gathered at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on May 6, 2023 to honor the lives of Chuck and Charley.

Twiddle, the upbeat jam rock quartet from Vermont, continued their "Distance Makes the Heart" tour at Webster Hall in New York, NY on April 6, 2023. This bittersweet run has become very special for both the band and their fans after Twiddle announced that they will take an indefinite hiatus upon the conclusion of 2023.
