The Mottola Twins first performed live when they were eight years old. Mom and Dad set up instruments for the boys in front of a strip mall during Christmas. Anthony and Vincent played holiday songs that they had been practicing.
Over the past eight years Anthony and Vincent have continued to perform in talent shows in elementary, middle, and high school. The boys have also done many performances at their church, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church where they attended faith formation and Life, a teen youth program.
Vincent loves dancing, playing drums, piano and acoustic guitar. Anthony and Vincent both love photography, acting, and travel, and performed in the play Bye Bye Birdie at the Richey Suncoast Theatre. The Mottola Twins were selected one of 26 talented youths in the Tampa Bay Area out of 300 applicants to join the Grammy Revolution Project at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Anthony composed two original songs and performed them live at Ruth Eckerd Hall, and came first runner up in a local singing contest at the 21st Annual Philippine Festival. The boys are devoted to their studies and being respectful to everyone.
The Mottola Twins perform locally as an acoustic duo playing anything from Justin Bieber, Greenday to James Taylor. Anthony and Vincent recently played at the Grand Opening of the Rays 3rd baseman Evan Longoria’s restaurant, Ducky’s. They also performed at Taste of South Tampa, Oldsmar Beef O Brady’s, and are preparing for their third performance at Tarpon Springs First Friday.
