Once a fringe genre of music, Rockabilly, has now burst onto the mainstream music stage and refuses to leave. The ultimate combination of high-energy, creative lyricism and performance, and sassy artists. Whether a seasoned listener or new to the Rockabilly scene, Twang is the band you need to see. When they first found their way into the spotlight audiences were swept off their feet. Now with a more experience under their belt Twang is determined to, not only knock you over but leave you begging for more.
Tim Collett on slap bass and vocals is the founding and ongoing member of iconic Australian rockabilly act, 'The Convertibles'. Tim's long association with the Rockabilly genre has forged a rhythmic, percussive, solid, titillating slap bass style and has been a mentor to many upcoming enthusiasts. Tim also has a rich vocal ability that can range from smooth to gritty and is equally at home with a big crooner or right on the outer edge with a wild Rockabilly number.
Dean Kendal on drums and vocals was also a founding member of another iconic Queensland Rockabilly act, 'The Shakin Quavers' as well as performing a long stint with the Convertibles. Dean is a wild man on the skins and with his lineage, the Rockabilly feel is as natural to him as breathing. Dean onstage can be both visually and aurally exciting as he embellishes his intense solid beat control with frenetic bursts.
On vocals and acoustics is multi award winning Country music performer, Maree Gwynne who at one time in her early career shared honours with the likes of Keith Urban. To hear Maree's big voice and witness her upbeat boppy and sassy onstage persona channels memories of rockabilly queens like Wanda Jackson and Janice Martin. Maree's warm, personable and chatty nature is also always a big hit with all audiences.
Last but not least on lead guitar and vocals is Dan Fargo who has been playing the traps and paying his dues for a good while. Dan in his own right is an in-demand performer and his vocal and picking skills are much acclaimed. His past stints with roots blues; rock and country acts has helped Dan reinforce and develop his own unique Rockabilly guitar style. Dan's considerable vocal abilities from crisp and growly to warm and affable lilts compliment his fine instrumentation.
