The Frankel sisters gave many young guys like me double vision; their girl-next-door looks had wide appeal. In those days, they also appeared beyond the little screen at home.
One time, during the 1960s, these female doppelgangers joined comedian Bob Hope on one of his USO roadshows in Vietnam. The G.I. audience at Da Nang Air Base loved the squeaky clean chicle sisters just as much as buxom Raquel Welch, also on the stage tour.
Now enter Vermont’s addition to the entertainment world’s love affair with twin performers—that’s teen sensation Take 2.
Take 2 is a dynamic duo of identical boy twins. The duo consists of talented singers and songwriters Adrian and Julian Woodrow, 18, of Manchester, Vt.
According to Take 2’s publicist Heather Chirtea, the teen twins will graduate from high school this year.
“As teenagers, they taught themselves to play the ukulele, guitar, and piano. Schools started asking them to play live,” Chirtea said. “After seeing how underfunded and forgotten the local music programs were, the twins started performing at schools to inspire other students to enjoy and create music. They sing popular cover songs, their own originals, play guitar and ukulele, and talk about what it was like to go through bootcamp on the “X-Factor” and “The Voice”—where they performed in front of 4,000 people.
Chirtea said the brothers like to share stories about how they got started singing and songwriting. It’s not surprising since the Vermont boys have already generated over 2.4 million hits on YouTube where you can find their songs and performances. A new C.D. album, titled “End of the Night” released around Thanksgiving 2014, is getting the twins more attention, too.
“My favorite track on the album is ‘Keep Me Dancin’’, it’s upbeat, fun and really catchy.” Adrian said. “Other songs on the album range from the slow and swooning ‘French Love Song’, one I wrote with ‘The Lady and the Tramp’ song ‘Bella Notte’ in mind, to the acoustic pop song ‘The Man’. ‘The Man’ is a ukulele piece with a fast-paced pop style.”
“The chorus sticks in your head and the beat moves your feet,” brother Julian said. “We get the audience singing along with us on this one.”
If you’re the least bit interested in seeing the Take 2 brothers just before they hit the international big time—and it seems like just a matter of time now— you can see them perform live at the Vergennes Eagles Club on Saturday, May 2. The event includes a concert and D.J. dance.
The doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:30. Prior to the their Vergennes debut, the brothers will share their experiences in the music business with students of the Beeman and Bristol schools.
Take 2 provides wholesome family entertainment. So families are welcome at the Eagles Club show. Tickets are $6 to benefit local school music programs. A cash bar will be open for adults. The Eagles Club is located at 67 New Haven Rd. in Vergennes.
