Cabrini students opted to spend their evening with a couple of dorks, not only dorks but skinny dorks.

A band by the name Two Skinny Dorks shared their music with a small crowd in Jazzman’s. This duo, originally from Cleveland, Ohio is currently on their “Spread the Love Tour.” This unsigned band has been highly praised by bands, such as, Dave Matthews and Blessed Union of Souls. The duo consists of lead vocals, Jake Blazer and Eric Penrod on guitar. Although these two musicians make-up the band, they often bring along different friends to play, so they introduced, Matt Corey who serenaded the audience with his saxophone.

They started their performance by playing songs off of their new album “Spread Love,” and as the performance went on they took requests from the audience. They performed a great rendition of songs from bands such as Buffalo Springfield. They entertained the crowd with upbeat numbers such as “Just Be” to sappy loves songs such as “I Hope I Don’t Fall In love With You.” Many of the songs consisted of an acoustic pop-funk style, with some elements of rap. It was evident that they played with an immense amount of enthusiasm.

Basically, they were having fun which probably helped the crowd enjoy the concert on a higher level. Despite the very small crowd, the overall atmosphere had a very positive vibe. Their songs all shared amazing melodies and catchy tunes. By the end of the performance, it seemed that they won the audience over. The guys took the time out after the show to sign autograph and talk to the students. When asked why they are still unsigned, and if they were planning to become signed, Jake Blazer said, ” Many people ask us this question. How we see the situation is we just enjoy what we are doing, such as performing for you guys. So, whether we get signed to a label doesn’t matter. We just want to enjoy and do what we do.”

During the signings, many of the students had shown a high interest in the band, and they were purchasing their CDs and striking up many conversations with the members. Among the audience, freshman, Fiona Bride thought the band put on an amazing performance. Fiona said, “I thought they were great. They were a great band with a great sound. I loved everything about it.” The guys are currently on tour until late April, early May. They can be seen and heard at colleges, radio stations, and certain television appearances. If you are into bands such as: O.A.R, Dave Matthews Band, or Blessed Union of Souls, you might want to look more into this band.
