One of the finest jumpin? swing bands around, the music of Vancouver?s Twisters has been dubbed ?blues-a-billy?. The Twisters have been rocking it up with their brand of West-Cost party blues for almost a decade. They?re a fixture on the Canadian Blues scene and have earned a reputation as one of the best blues bands in the country, receiving numerous accolades and awards over the years.
The group includes David ?Hurricane?Hoerl (harmonica and vocals), Brandon Isaak (guitar and vocals), Sandy Smith (drums, guitar and vocals) and James Taylor (upright bass and trumpet). David has played with the best blues musicians including Albert Collins, Big Mama Thornton, and Sonny Rhodes.
