Conceived, written, and performed by Michael E. Moats
Co-written and performed by Addi Twigg (of "Steeler Ladies" and "Steel Defense")

Addi Twigg & Sean G. Donaldson make up the group - BAIT & SWITCH - they brew a special blend of magical pop comedy that’s sure to hook you from the very start -- without keeping you up at night or giving you the shakes.
B&S performs in a wide variety of venues where we feel it is our duty to make blind dates bearable again. No ditty is sacred, no ballad beyond our reach. With decades of pop music at our fingertips, we’re bound to distort one or two of your favorites! Check out their site!
