About the Broadways...
The Broadway Twisters performed their stunning live debut supporting platinum selling artist Paul Young’s new Tex-Mex band Los Pacaminos. Since then they’ve hot-footed bandstands across the country including The Gypsy Hotel, Ronnie Scott’s and the 100 Club with the likes of The Urban Voodoo Machine, Si Cranstoun, Daddy Long Legs, Ruts DC, Shonen Knife, Tenpole Tudor, Theatre of Hate, John Otway and Steve Conte from The New York Dolls.
In April 2016 they performed at Muse’s end of Drones Tour party at the Brooklyn Bowl in the 02 arena.
In 2019 the band were featured on the Urban Voodoo Machine’s covers album ‘Friends and Family’ alongside such exalted company as Jim Jones and Wilko Johnson.
Along with hi-octane 50’s classics and a few ‘off the beaten track’ toons The Broadway Twisters’ incendiary brand of noir-country trash-R&R is evolving into something unique – think Allen Ginsberg meets Dale Hawkins.
And now... the long-awaited debut album! "South by South West 2"
