Twiddle & Frends Memorial Meltdown Announced for Memorial Day Weekend
LAKE GEORGE – Those looking for something to do Memorial Day Weekend need look no further. Announced today was the Twiddle & Frends Memorial Meltdown. Scheduled to take place at the Charles R. Wood Festival Commons in downtown Lake George on Saturday, May 28th and Sunday, May 29th, the Memorial Meltdown will feature two sets by Vermont jamband Twiddle each night, along with performances by Lucid, Marble Eyes and the Whiskey Dicks (with special guests Ryan Dempsey of Twiddle and guitar virtuoso Joe Cirotti) on Saturday and Roots of Creation, Sophistafunk and Baked Shrimp on Sunday.
With 17 years of relentless touring behind them, Twiddle has built an impressive resume spanning Red Rocks to Bonnaroo, and multiple sellouts of historic rock venues across the country. In the live setting, more and more people are invigorated by Twiddle’s community, promoting positivity and the band’s skillful improvisational music. So many like-minded people believe in the greater good, and they find that good in Twiddle, who donates $1 of every ticket sale to The White Light Foundation, Twiddle’s affiliate 501c3 organization. The White Light Foundation, in turn, makes financial contributions to non-profits local to where the band is playing. Comprised of Zdenek Gubb on bass and vocals, Ryan Dempsey on keyboards and vocals, Mihali Savoulidis on guitar and lead vocals and Brook Jordan on percussion and vocals, Twiddle has amassed a large loyal following, with many of their fans seeing multiple shows per tour.
The two-day event, which is being produced by the same folks who produce Adirondack Independence Music Festival at the same location, will also feature a variety of food and craft vendors.
Gates open each day at 1:30 pm with music set to begin at 2:30 pm and run until about 11:00 pm. Tickets for the all-ages event go on sale Friday, March 4th at 10:00 am. For more info visit: www.memorialmeltdown.com.
