Menage A Twang

Known for clever lyrics, close harmonies, and matching dresses, Ménage à Twang is a folk band that blends the sassy spirit of Loretta Lynn with the sardonic humor of Tina Fey. Formed in 2006, the band has spent years honing their signature performance style at venues such as The Knitting Factory, The Living Room, Pianos, Pete’s Candy Store, Littlefield’s, Union Hall, and the Bell House. In December 2008, the Ménage released their self-titled debut album. Their follow up, We Don’t Judge, was released in 2011.

Ménage à Twang has been featured on AfterEllen.com, Brooklyn Based, Gothamist, Flavorpill, the YouTube Music Spotlight, Brooklyn Vegan blog, the Nerve Scanner, Philebrity.com, Digg.com, and in Politico, the New Yorker Online The Daily News and Time Out New York’s “Own This City” section. Past shows were the Editor’s Pick in both the NY Post and the Brooklyn Rail.

"A Brooklyn singing group is putting a little bit of country music into its tunes about city life. Instead of songs about lost loves, dead dogs and broken-down pickups, Brooklyn trio Ménage à Twang is singing about lousy subway service, boring jobs and being forced to share studio apartments." - Elizabeth Lazarowitz, NY Daily News
