Tweed inspires and excites with music fueled from high energy performance and improvisation.

(Clay Parnell, Ian McGuire, Allen Aucoin)
The power trio CIA consists of Allen Aucoin on drums (The Disco Biscuits, Dr. Fameus), Clay Parnell on bass (Particle, BioDiesel, BP) and Ian McGuire on the keys (MJ Project, Sonic Spank, Blurry Nights). CIA’s often high energy, high quality live performances have earned them acclaim among fans as a dynamic and explosive ensemble. CIA’s style borrows heavily from the genres of acid jazz, breaks and drum n bass, while regularly steering into experimental territories whose boundaries are highlighted by a blending of genres. As one fan put it, CIA plays “down to business dance beats for the bad kids”.
