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 excell musicianship, and mixing it all with comedy, audience participation, and a high energy show.  Top 40 and classic country mixed with classic rock and roll is the music they love to perform.  But, the twins also enjoy singing gospel and pop standards from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. 


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 timethey turned 13 years old the twins formed their first group.  At 14 years old they were 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 surrounding states. 




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.
