The Weekapaug Orchestra
The Weekapaug Orchestra The Weekapaug Orchestra is a group of longtime friends and musicians who share a love for improvisational music and a deep respect for the band Phish. This project has been in the works for several years but finally came to be on January 28th at the Funk Box in Baltimore, MD before a sell-out crowd. The Band consists of Ryan Porter, formerly of the Bridge, on Bass and vocals, Matt Chase of Black-Eyed Susan, on guitar and vocals, Aaron Levy of Black-Eyed Susan, on keys and vocals, and lastly Paul Weinberg, formerly of the Bridge, on drums. Over the past ten years they have played together in several different bands throughout the Baltimore area, but this is the first time the 4 of them have collaborated as a solid unit. With the addition of lighting expert and avid Phish-head, James Curran, on his monster lighting rig, T.W.O took its final shape and is poised to fill the void left by Phish's recent departure. The most important philosophy of T.W.O is having fun, and hopefully anyone who attends a show will quickly realize that!
