The dynamic duo, twins Nalani & Sarina, swung through town in November. Since they were playing 2 days in a row in Baltimore, including our show 11/10/16, we managed to snag an hour of their time on the 11th for a Studio Seizure session. With a pop style well-rooted in classic R&B and Soul music, these two always put on a great show.

For their Seizure we let them be the DJs and, not surprisingly, a lot of killer songs came up in their mix. Whether you’re talking vintage Stax Records or modern folks like Allen Stone, Nalani & Sarina know their music. And how about that time they covered a Bruce Springsteen song with The Boss in the audience?! Listen in to hear great stories and songs on this week’s Studio Seizure.
