Roots-ee put this question on the board a while back concerning the Twinkle Brothers:
Q:Now I wonder how the name 'Twinkle Brothers" emerged as being "THE" name that the Grant breddas chose for their eventual stage name?
Is there any background as to why the name 'Twinklle Brothers' came up?
Also do "Twinkles" live in JA and/or UK and/or the US?

I sent your question to my breddren The Twinkle Brothers direct and this is thier answer they sent me. I told you I would find out and let you know and here it is my friend hope this finds you well. Blessings, Denny

A:Greetings Denny:
Twinkle Brothers' name was given to them by an elder Rastaman many, many years ago. The name has never changed. Twinkle reside in UK and US, as well as JA. Hope that answers your questions.

Bless, Twinkles

I posted this here so all the massive can see it.

Hey, I thought my answer to the Twinkle's name was more thorough and interesting! LOL

Bring the Twinkle Brothers every year and I will never complain!

Toots is inna Portland + Eugene.
riffy,
Repeating the good Ras Danny above -
here is a little more info.
Portland is smaller venue Roseland Theater but security
is out of hand 1000 seat.
Eugene is much better for reggae shows I think
McDonald Theater 2500 seat.
But the "Prezident Brown" show is a benefit with non-reggae beforehand. I figure he should be on about 10-11.
His show in Eugene is a special trip for him. Hes not on tour right now I don't thinlk.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th
Portland, Oregon 97209

McDonald Theatre
1010 Willamette St
Eugene, Or.

Hope this helps. My daughter lives in Wilsonville
and I work in Woodburn.
