VIDEO PREMIERE: Twin Peaks – “Fade Away” (Live @ WDBM)

Twin Peaks is a four piece group from the Chicago area. They definitely fall into the Rock ‘n’ Roll category, and blend a bit of a real heavy pop to their music. From bar chords to funk bass licks and all the way to quick guitar solos, Twin Peaks is simply great and their performance at our studio proved it. Watch them kill it here at the WDBM studios with their song “Fade Away”.
