Twisted Hams is a rock 'n' roll band from El Paso, Texas. The band was formed by three local science teachers and has expanded to a four piece group (sometimes five). The current members are Nicole O'Leary, Paul Hyder, Ron Lambert, and Randy Russ. Although the name was originally derived from a sandwich, it is really indicative of the bands quirky music and showy attitude. The band is diverse in its musical influences and plays a wide variety of styles. Mostly, just good ol' feel good rock n' roll with influences from folk rock, rockabilly, jazz, ska, punk and even Zappa. These styles are blended in a smooth and pleasing way that attracts a wide range of  listeners. Some of our songs have tongue-in-cheek lyrics that come off as being slightly irreverent.  Dennis Woo of KTEP radio described our music as "original classic rock". We recorded our first CD in July of 2012 at El Adobe Studios in El Paso, Texas. Our second CD, titled "Twisted Hams", recorded at Sweat Shop Studio, was released (Dec. 2015) and is now available on http://CD and iTunes.

As we like to say...

 “We take our not-so-serious music seriously.”
