Full band playing



Few bands can lay claim to the unique and colorful musical pedigree that makes Twist of Fate synonymous with summer, outdoor celebrations and just plain good times. Whether it's light "cocktail music" to set the mood at the beginning of the night, current favorites, Motown, full-tilt dance tunes or straight ahead American rock 'n' roll, the band prides itself on being equally adept at many styles of music, while adding their own unique blend of sound and spirit. What's more, if there is a tune you really want to hear for an upcoming event, the band can work it up at your request.

"Great summer album" - 5/5 stars

“This record shows off Twist of Fate’s versatility, as the band transitions from ska to reggae to pop to calypso and back again. Favorites include their cover of Men at Work’s “Down Under” — listen for the familiar lead played on steel pans — and the harder “Caroline Breeze.” Definitely a great album to have on your iPod for the first BBQ of the summer.” - ABede

Out of the Cellar album cover



In our quaint suburban village 23 miles north of NYC, we have found an extension of our practice space. A cozy, basement bar with the greatest bartenders, cool regulars and good company offered into the wee hours of the morning. For those of you faraway or those close who have to stay up past our starting time, we want you to know Twist of Fate in our watering hole, the Cellar Bar. As expected within its doors, Buffett is revered, Corona runs abundantly and the feel and sounds of our tropical roots warm the nights.

Follow the Rhumbline album cover



Our first record plays homage to our yearly ritual of driving down to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The record was made during a transitional time in Twist of Fate’s history and features a potpourri of friends lending their talents to the album, including guests musicians Sharon Leal and Kevin Mambo.
