Philadelphia's funktronica powerhouse, Tweed, is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of funk, rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of high energy performance and improvisation. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging disco dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.

 

The band was formed in 2010 in the basement parties and college underground at University of Delaware. In 2013, Joe, Jon, and AJ added Dan on bass and soon after took the national stage of clubs and venues across the country. With unwavering determination and a uniquely cohesive sound, they have proven they can bring the party anywhere they go.
