Strong vocal power, including four lead vocalists and melodic four-part harmonies, audience engaging showmanship, and “tight” professional musicianship featuring a blend of electric and acoustic guitars make The Skinny Little Twits a favorite at many venues.
The Skinny Little Twits, whose name reflects the fun and light heartedness of this talented eclectic group, are comprised of musicians who in some prior projects have been signed with major recording labels.
Their members have shared the stage over the years with some of the biggest names in rock music. The Twits have opened for National acts the Go Go's, Christopher Cross and “Weird Al” Yankovic and have head-lined concerts for various cities, festivals, fairs, corporations and venues.
The Twits repertoire encompasses both cover songs from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and original music. Cover songs range from funky dance to the ever-popular classic rock. Their catchy original music has a decidedly classic rock feel made unique by the members' widely varied influences including
rock, blues and country.
Based out of the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys, the Skinny Little Twits were founded in 1991 by Iowan guitarist/singer/
songwriter Mike Pieper and other “honorary” Twits. Writing together, they created a moderate rock sound with influences including the Eagles, Doobie Brothers and Eric Clapton.
Early performances were casual coffeehouse gatherings with other musician friends lending their talents to the mix.
After several years, the band took on a more permanent direction. In 1997 Rich Mortlock, formerly with Atlantic Records, joined as co-lead vocalist after living and performing in Europe and on the U.S. west coast.
Theo Mordey, a native Californian who has toured nationally with various stage productions including Jesus Christ Superstar, Tommy, Evita, A Chorus Line and We Will Rock You enhanced the Twits line-up on drums in 2008. In 2010 dynamic lead guitar player Paul Standel whose broad musical talents originally surface on L.A.'s Sunset Strip was introduced to the line-up.
In 2012 Curt Harding, a life long multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter with extensive performance experience enhanced the Twits line-up on bass guitar.
To date The Twits continue to entertain large enthusiastic crowds with their trademark “Ultimate Tribute to the Legends of Classic Rock”.
In a scene dominated by Tribute Bands playing the music of a single act, The Skinny Little Twits are an exciting alternative to any concert event! Complete with a lineup of world class musicians, The Twits are revered by fans as THE ULTIMATE CONCERT EXPERIENCE.
