At age 17 under the watchful eye of Bill Walton, he began to study music at the prestigious Sandole Studio in Philadelphia. Steve Girardi was one of the guitar teachers for Mihali Savoulidis growing up in NJ (Mihali refers to him as Sensei or Maestro).He started working with Savoulidis around the year 2000 at the Summit Music Studio and continued working with him throughout most of his time at Columbia High School. Girardi has also graced the Mihali solo stage on multiple occasions including his NYC debut this year at the Cutting Room in NYC. His most recent sit in with Mihali was during his current solo tour at The Milkboy in Philadelphia, Pa on December 2, 2017.

In Grubby's words
"Twiddles music is a new tile in the mosaic, with clear connections to what has come before, but with something new that expands the realm of what music can be. New original music pushing what has become before, but stemming from reggae, funk, rock, bluegrass, jazz, and even hip-hop all with lyrics to make you think and improvisational jams that reach for the ungraspable
its an orgasmic fuzzball that will move your feet - and your mind."


Annie in the Water Bio:
Beginning as a duo years ago, the band has evolved into the five-piece powerhouse that it is today. Members Brad Hester (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Michael Lashomb (lead guitar/vocals), Josh West (drums/percussion/vocals), JD Tolstoi (keyboards/organ/vocals), and Billy Comstock (bass/vocals) have been taking the east coast by sonic-storm together since last April, with performances at StrangeCreek, Disc Jam, ADK Independence Music Festival and the Frendly Gathering (among others), and the momentum is increasing. The music is a groove-infused combination of rock, reggae, and funk, with a healthy dose of improvisation. Five strong personalities, five-part harmonies and conscious lyrics are an integral part of the bands original sound. The group is a band of friends focused on bringing positive vibes and raising the vibration of any room or stage they play, and their heartfelt performances bring smiles and get the booties shaking.
