WEEGE & THE WONDERTWINS
With wild live performances of original music, Weege & The Wondertwins channel the vintage vibes of The Kinks, Julie London, Bessie Smith, and more. Prepare to be enchanted, delighted, and thrilled to your core.
Frontwoman Lexi Weege is a true vocal acrobat, leaping from dangerous, sultry growl to playful lilting in a single bound. You would be hard-pressed to find as transfixing a storyteller. Unapologetic, brazen, and boldfaced, Weege’s mastery of narrative is as thrilling as it is wrenching.
Backed by identical twins Tom and AJ DelNegro, drummer Kade Parkin, and guitarist Nick Ferrara, Weege is buoyant on the steady foundation of the self-taught Wonderboys, who lend perfect harmonies and rollicking shout choruses to originals and old favorites alike.
Their debut album “Marigold” arrived in 2017, followed by “Do I Seem Weird Lately?” in 2019, followed by what the band does best: tour. Performing hundreds of self-booked, self-promoted shows all over the country in just a few years, Weege & The Wondertwins are true seasoned professionals, and their work ethic shows.
Weege & The Wondertwins are not to be missed. Like a lone dog howling at the moon in the dead of night, like the open road, or the glowing stars over the desert, they call to you, pull you in with their irresistible magnetism, and make you family.
ABOUT THE VENUE
The Shea is a theater which keeps reinventing itself. Established in 1927 by Denis Shea, this up-to-date movie theater was designed in the "Spanish" style so popular in the Hollywood of the twenties. That time is still vivid in the minds of some Turners Falls residents as a time of five cent matinees, movie serials and (in the thirties) dish nights, when you could see a movie and add a piece of "Depression Glass" or china to your table setting. Nowadays, The Shea provides performance space for a variety of attractions designed to appeal to the widest range of tastes. Musical offerings include folk, pop, rock, swing, jazz, country and traditional. Theatrical productions encompass musical comedy, drama, comedy, and political satire. In addition, audiences can take advantage of magic shows, children's shows and silent film revivals.
