The Toasters have been around since 1981 and have undertaken their 28th YEAR ANNIVERSARY TOUR IN 2008. Formed on the Lower East Side of Manhattan they traded punches with the best of them at the legendary CBGB's Club (RIP) on the Bowery. With early releases produced by the great Joe Jackson they zoomed into prominence as America's early ska pioneers and have been blazing the way for the rest of them ever since. Alongside bands like Fishbone they helped engineer the American ska craze in the 80's and 90's.
Since that time they have continued to provide an international benchmark for the genre whilst never losing sight of where they cam from.
2009 will see them undertaking yet another world tour. 28 years, 5000 live concerts, 16 albums, a million miles...but most of all - 100% SKA
