Twist of Fate to perform at Greenwich Point

Summer vacation may be over, fall is looming just weeks away, but there’s time for one last concert in the Friends of Greenwich Point’s summer series of free concerts.

Twist of Fate will play at Greenwich Point on Sunday, Sept. 7, at 4:30 to 6 p.m. to close out the summer music series. This is a free concert open to residents and guests, but a beach pass is required to enter.

According to the Friends of Greenwich Point, “Few bands can lay claim to the colorful musical pedigree of Twist of Fate. Their inviting Caribbean tilt and mastery of R&B, Motown chestnuts, hip-hop, rap, reggae and popular rock tunes from every era, make them synonymous with summer, outdoor celebrations and just plain good times. Their diverse repertoire enables them to fit in to any occasion and satisfy any age group’s musical taste.”

Twist of Fate’s front man, Adam Reist, has been praised by music fans for his ability to work with the crowd and get a great effect going for the concerts. He and his wife, Dayna, who plays steel drums in the band, started out as street performers at the South Street Seaport, where reading a crowd and adapting to its changing dynamics are keys to consistent success.

“One of the band’s enduring hallmarks is Adam’s well-timed use of a wireless mic to engage and involve persons in the audience,” Friends of Greenwich Point said. “He combines equal parts Jimmy Buffet, James Brown, Bruno Mars and Grandmaster Flash to envelop everyone into Twist of Fate’s live-music experience.”

The band is rounded out by the polyphasetic Chris Allen on tenor saxophone and guitar; Robert Brissette on bass and vocals, and Joe Brady, a veteran of Broadway pit bands, jazz ensembles and musical director of the Murray Avenue School Orchestra, playing the drums.

In case of rain, the concert will be held at the Eastern Civic Center. For more information, visit Friendsofgreenwichpoint.org.
