The Twist Description 🙂
“We don’t just switch instruments but we also switch up vocals & sing together. “When you hear a band with only one singer/no harmonies, it tends to get monotone fast, so we do our best to sidestep that to keep everyone tapping their feet 🙂 “Happy”
The Trio can pull off its unique approach because of the seasoned players involved and the deep history between Jason Taylor and Todd King. Taylor & King performed together more than 20 years ago in a Christian rock band called Birthright. After the band split, Jason spent years doing the occasional solo gig before jumping back into bands… Thanks to an ad Taylor found seeking musicians, he ran into King for the first time in 18 years. Soon after, the pair discovered Sam Sprinkle at a blues jam benefit. Since forming up four years ago, The Twisted Trio has spent its time playing several areas here in the upstate, Like Rock Hill, Simpsonville, Fountain Inn, Spartanburg, Anderson, Travelers Rest, Grey Court, Laurens, Greenville and Greer,,, playing everything from Iron Maiden to Elvis. No material is taboo, we truly believe this was the key to the band’s success early on.
“We started trying to learn songs that were out of the ordinary as soon as we got together, but overall “Our main focus is to concentrate & cater to what the crowd wants.”
While the band’s set is made up mostly of cover songs, we make time for a couple original tunes. Like ” In Carolina” that has a Southern rock feel in the vein of the Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See.” Also Another untitled original from King has the band exploring its funky side,., a rocking/twisted version of “Boogie Shoes.”
When it comes to covers, Jason & Todd take advantage of the fact that they have very different voices. Taylor’s voice is kinda gruff/bluesy, while King’s tenor voice lends itself more to the likes of Journey or Iron Maiden & many more. Of course, the band takes the time to gauge the crowd during the first few songs, but even if it drifts predominantly into classic rock, we always make time for Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train, or The Trooper 🙂
“We stay in safe territory with crowds for the most part, but we have to throw out some unexpected stuff just for fun, & of course an overall Twist to the music we’ve all loved for years… It’s TWISTED 🙂
