Vancouver's energetic jump blues band The Twisters have been wowing audiences and making them dance locally and all over the world since the early 2000s. Founded by harpist Dave "Hurricane" Hoerl and guitarist Brandon Isaak, the band released their debut album, Fulla Hot Air, in 2001, followed by Long Hard Road the next year. In 2005, the quartet took a well-needed pause after a tragic road accident took the life of their bassist and injured other members. With the addition of new bassist Keith Picot and drummer Matt Pease, the band soon moved on and recorded a new album, the Juno-nominated After the Storm (2006), with Northern Blues label. In 2009, The Twisters released Come out Swingin', featuring Kenny Wayne on piano.
