Toast and Jam in 2010

August 9, 2010

Band: Toast & Jam
Home: Chatham Ontario Canada
Genre: Cover duo of popular music
Formed: 2003

Members:
Michael Uher – Vocals, guitar
Mark Slater – Percussion, vocals, guitar

Mike grew up in Blenheim and Mark grew up in Chatham, but was born in Leeds England.

Note from their official facebook group: okay, get “BREAKFAST” out of your head……here’s the real story: Mike and Mark created this unique duo in 2003, as a second band to their trio, THIS END UP. What started as a little idea grew into a popular and in-demand musical act. They do over 200 shows a year these days, and no sign of letting up, with engagements in southern Ontario, Ohio, and even the occasional show in Nassau Bahamas!
With some great vocal harmonies, an acoustic guitar (and sometimes two) and a unique percussion ensemble that has since been copied by many others, these guys play a very big repertoire of music, with pop, rock, folk and country from the 1950’s to today.

In 2010, the duo took their cover band act to many places including Windsor, Port Stanley, Rondeau, Tobermory, Pelee Island, Kelley’s Island, Ohio, Lasalle, Chatham, Illinois, Nebraska, and much more.

Formed: 2003
What : Top 40 Cover Band

Members:
Michael Uher

   So, Mark & Mike were talking one day… “Hey Mike, we should do an acoustic show – like, unplugged versions of our THIS END UP tunes, and some other cool tunes from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, maybe throw in some comedy tunes…”

   “A brilliant plan, Mark.  Then we can play some smaller places, do the whole audience participation/sing-along/request thing.  And here’s an idea for our name:   How about TOAST & JAM?  Get it?  We toast…and then we jam!”
All in good fun.

They put out a live cd, recorded at Patrick O. Ryan’s in Windsor
