43 YEARS OF PLAYING MUSIC, 1972 - 2015
Identical twin brothers who love to sing and play their instruments as much as they
love to entertain an audience. Intertwining wonderful vocal
ability with excellent
musicianship, and mixing it all with comedy, audience participation, and a high energy
show. Top 40 and classic country, current country, and classic rock is the music they
love to perform. If you catch a show, you will also likely hear Motown, Bluegrass, and Blues.
Blain and Brian Swabb were born and raised, and still live in Greenville, Ohio,
Darke County. They started picking their instruments at a young age, and by the time
they turned 13 years old the twins formed their first group. At 14 years old they
performing most weekends. After graduating from high school, the two traveled the
Midwest playing the hotel and resort circuit. After 8 years on the road, they came back
to their hometown to own, operate, and perform in their nightclub,
“My Brother’s Place”, which they had for 15 years. In 1998, the twins went back out
on the road, and now average over 500 shows per year. They cover most of Ohio and
Spittin’ Image are two of the most versatile, fun-loving, enthusiastic performers you’ve
ever seen. With extensive and outstanding musical skills and a terrific variety of
fine-tuned comedy routines, Spittin’ Image will surprise and delight your audience.
Brian does most of the lead vocals and also adds the harmony to the sound.
He is a wonderful guitar player and probably knows a million chords. Besides
sequencing all the added background instrumentation ( drums, bass, piano, etc…),
he is the emcee for the group.
Blain is the oldest twin (by 26 minutes). He can play the heck out of his
Gibson 8-string mandolin, but is equally at home on his custom made 5-string
mandolin. When he’s not playing the mandolin he is playing his harmonicas or
adding his vocal talents. He also has a love of doing pantomimes.
