The Twi-Lites is a sextet of jazz-pop musicians from different musical disciplines united around the principle of playing flexible repertoire of hits, rarities and originals with a foot in jazz, pop, R&B, folk and rock with strong melodies, harmonies and economical arrangements.
The band originated in 2017 around drummer Michael DiMario, keyboardist/guitarist/ songwriter Bruce Martin, multi-instrumentalist Amy Dennison, bassist Bill Reid, lead guitarist Greg Sayles and singer Karie-Lee Sutherland, developing a repertoire of some 70 songs, including covers from the Great American Songbook (Gershwin, Cole Porter, etc.), and pop songs from the late 20th century, including Britpop, Motown, folk-rock (Dylan, Rolling Stones) early New Wave (Blondie, Go-Gos) and 20th-century-styled originals by Bruce. Since then, drummer Kevin Marsh has replaced co-founder DiMario. Band has principally appeared at festival-style and music series settings.
We pride ourselves on performing classics with a twist.
