Blain and Brian Swabb were born and raised, and still live in Greenville, Ohio. 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 were performing most weekends.
After graduating from High School, the two traveled the Midwest playing 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 Brothers Place”, which they had for fifteen years.
In 1998, the twins went back on the road, and now average over 450 shows per year. They cover most of Ohio and surrounding states, also the months of January, February and March you will find their shows divided between Florida, Texas and Arizona.

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, he is the emcee for the group.
Blain is the oldest by 26 minutes. He can play the heck out of his Gibson 8-string mandolin, but is equally at home on his 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.
