"Show review"

“Next up was the Twin Cats, and let me just say – I can dig it! With a bassist that slaps like Victor Wooten, a sax player that could play with anyone, a keyboardist with style, a drummer that really knows his beats, and a guitarist that can really play some jazz, this band stole the show! Very jazzy, very funky, undoubtedly diggable, these guys really took me there. It’s hard to classify or compare a band like this to anyone else, but I would say, if you twist my arm, that they have a little Medeski, Marten and Wood, a bit of Morphine, and perhaps a little Bela Fleck and the Flecktones (sans banjo). They really incorporated the arrangement theory of less is more, which a lot of bands don’t understand – that is, when you’ve got so much going on, musically, everyone doesn’t have to play every note, otherwise it will get cluttered and jumbled. Their uncanny understanding of this concept is probably why they have such good dynamics. Of course, good musicianship always helps, too. I think they actually played a song in 7/8! I’ve never even heard of that time signature, but that’s what I heard…these guys are really doin’ it.
These guys really read each other well. If you can dig jazz or funk or jam, check these guys out. I was able to talk briefly with the sax player, Nick Gerlock, who explained that their name is derived from the fact that the drummer and guitarist are identical twins! They are based out of Broadripple, and they’ve been playing together for a year and a half. Funk is their passion, which is obvious, especially considering their influences, including Maceo Parker, Tower of Power, Herbie Hancock, and James Brown. You can find them online at I think you’ll agree with my assessment, which is, in one word, WOWSA!” -Greg Newman IndyMusicScene.Com


"Nuvo best of 2005"

“The Twin Cats are by far the most original and entertaining group around town right now. Their smooth blend of funk, jam, jazz and imported rhythms make everyone move in some way, shape or form. Catch them hosting CT Peppers’ open mic night every other Wednesday or at one of their many shows to see what I mean. If you do, you’ll be hooked, though, so be warned. ”

"Nuvo best of 2004"

"I don't know if "rock band" is a good way to describe the Twin Cats, but I don't really know how you would describe it. With a perfect mixture of jazz and funk you can't help but want to shake your booty all night long. With only a year under their belt the Twin Cats have already accomplished so much. Winning WKLU 101.9's November Battle of the Jam bands, and playing at such clubs as the Patio, Birdy's, Rock Lobster, and Uncle Festers in Bloomington. In a time when DJs and cover bands rule the bars, these guys are still going strong and staying true to the music they love to make." -Mandy Nobbe Nuvo Newsweekly -Best of Indy 2004 Issue - Nuvo Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


In the midst of DJ's and cover bands becoming popular in Indianapolis, The Twin Cats home town, this group of "Young Funksters" are staying true to the music they love to make. The Twin Cats have a gift of bringing out the feelings we all go through in life and making that into music, music that is flavored with the life styles these young musicians have lead growing up around Indianapolis. The Twin Cats are becoming popular in almost every venue they have played, with inspirational help coming from such musicians as local saxophonist Frank Glover, Johny "Guitar" Watson, James Brown, Herbie Hancock, the Commodores, Wayne Shorter, and Tower of Power
