The members of the Twi-Lighters met in the military with Fred Martin at lead, joined by Joe Indelicato, Lynn Holthaus and Ed Breamer. The Twi-Lighters favored close harmony and could "rumble" with any doo-wop group of the day.
Their first release, "To Love in Vain," was written by Paul Trefzger and released on the Fraternity label in October of 1961 (Fraternity 889). That track and its flip "The Beginning of Love," were recorded by Paul and Bud at a small Cincinnati studio in Mariemont, and received reasonable airplay, leading to The Twi-Lighters working a TV dance party and record hop appearances.
That success gave Paul and Bud the confidence to establish Saxony Records.
