What can you say about a group that takes "Banned From Argo" and turns it into a greasy roadhouse rock and roll song? That writes a love song for a Zombie? That writes a love song for a video game emulator? You say they’re Toyboat.
Take classic rock, hard edged 70's British-style blues rock and 80's hard rock, add filk and you have Toyboat. They play a combination of classic filk songs in a style you have never heard them done on before as well as their own SF-F songs. They mash-up filk lyrics with songs you know. Some of their songs are serious, some are funny, some are just odd. They have brought their show to conventions all over the Midwest. They have made ears ring on stages, in meetings rooms, and at room parties. Individually, the members of the band have played at conventions, filk circles, coffee houses, clubs and basements all over the US. There is no safe minimum distance. Do not panic, do not try to run. Just repeat after me... Toyboat... Toyboat... Toyboat...
