Tweed inspires and excites with music fueled from high energy performance and improvisation. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of funk, rock and electronica. The band was formed at University of Delaware and now calls Philadelphia their stomping ground. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.


Founding members AJ DiBiase (guitar), Jon Tomzcak (synth) and Joe Vela (drums) added bass player Dan McDonald to their lineup in June 2013 stimulating new energy and momentum. With multiple tours and countless festivals under their belt, Tweed has proven they can fill larger rooms across the East coast with precision and style.  Bust out your dancing shoes, this ain’t your grandfather's tweed!

"Ironically the Newark band Tweed is named after a soft fabric, yet their psychedelic sound, which includes a blend of electronica, in addition to other genres, is anything but plush." - Middletown Transcript

"Their music is rage-tastic—it's good, clean fun that simulates the experience of psychedelics" - UD Review

"The musicianship and cohesiveness displayed at The Blockley shows that Tweed has a presence big enough to fill larger venues and the musical chops to rage with the best." - We Went Hard
