Having started as an all original band in July 1999, the band has continued to develop a fan base in Columbus and throughout Ohio. In the time since the band’s start, they have completed the release of their debut studio release “Codename: Hard-Hat” to positive reviews. Both the Columbus Alive and Columbus Dispatch have likened TOAST to such bands as Widespread Panic, MOE and Steely Dan, to name a few. TOAST received national press when RELIX magazine featured a review of the band’s CD in their December ’01 issue’s “On The Verge” column. The band has also received radio airplay on Columbus’ WOBN, numerous internet radio shows and Annapolis based WRNR where the CD made Bill Wright’s top 30 CD’s of 2001. The CD also features guest performances from members of Ekoostik Hookah, and The Mullins Band.
