“THE TWANGBUSTERS deftly mix up a “juke joint cocktail for your soles” – a potent blend of 50’s/60’s honkytonk country, boogie woogie and jump blues – shaken and stirred! Described as “Patsy Cline meets Bessie Smith” and “the love child of Loretta Lynn & Jerry Lee Lewis”, the band is led by “Miss Paula” Bradley, on piano, rhythm guitar, and dynamic vocals. No stranger to Northeastern audiences, she is a founding member /lead singer of “Girl Howdy” and has toured with Americana darlings “Uncle Earl”, as well as with musical powerhouses Tony Trischka and Bruce Molsky. Joining her are roots rhythm aces Kevin Maul (“The Lustre Kings”) on slidin’ steel guitar; Peter Bearup (“The Coveralls) on sizzling electric guitar; Jaybird Gorleski (“Rocket Velvet”) on doghouse bass and Bob Resnick, drums, and together they mine the catalogs of such diverse greats as Carl Smith, Patsy Cline, Ruth Brown and Webb Pierce, to name a few!

“The love child of Loretta Lynn and Jerry Lee Lewis

“Paula and the Twangbusters did a great job of getting us all up swing dancing and Two-stepping all night long!”

“Paula Bradley and The Twangbusters had the crowd jumping around Friday afternoon with their Millbury Peanut Butter and Jam in the Park concert series …Bradley, who sounds like a bluesy Patsy Cline, got them going with her “Cattin’ Around” rendition. Quick with a smile, and encouraging the folks to dance, the Twangbusters proved to be a crowd favorite, with an eclectic blend of blues, country, bop and boogie.”

“The Twangbusters brought an exceptional performance downtown and truly made a our first Country in the City theme a success.”
— Sarah Fitzgerald, Downtown Pittsfield Third Thursdays Chair
“…this one is like a cool slice of Patsy Cline, beautiful and soulful, with a sad twang and a heck of a lot of soul. This really is a band that’s worth all the hype.”
