Twin Fin consists of Dana Hartman on vox and guitar, Cole G Benjamin on vox and saxophone, Paul Wickerson on guitar, Eric Roelofsen playing the upright bass, and Brad "Lavard" Ondrovcik on drums. They are an energetic group from Ontario, Canada that plays everything from swing to rockabilly, blues, and jazz. Twin Fin’s high-energy shows include their own original songs in addition to that of Janis Martin, Louis Prima, Brian Setzer, and many more.
The band’s debut record, Whisky, Wine, and Venom Love features ten of Twin Fins’ creative new songs in a way that captures all of the energy of their live shows. The album was also nominated for CHRW Radio’s Album of the Year as well as Jack Richardson London Music Awards’ Best Blues Artist, though to say the album is strictly blues is a bit limiting.
The opening track on Whisky, Wine, and Venom Love greets us with a groovin’ swing tune, “Jungle Room.” On “Long Gone Daddy,” we can hear the spirit of '60s swing music revived and reinvented with a fresh new perspective. Twin Fin’s debut album is full of powerful, high-energy hits. Finally, the album closes out with “Jalopy,” another poppy song that will have you toe tappin’ and booty shakin’. With cool rockabilly melodies for the new school and swing music for today’s generation, Whisky, Wine, and Venom Love has a retro feel that any dance music fan today will love.
