Terminal Bar TweetUp! This Friday – 11 p.m. at The Terminal Bar


Okay. Let it never be said that the Terminal Bar isn’t a hip place. It is a totally rad place…that just happens to not have redecorated in the last 5 decades.

So…Let’s make it rock with a TweetUp! This Friday night at 11 p.m., my band will be taking the stage in full TweetUp style, taking photos of the crowd and posting them to TwitPic, telling you all in 140 characters or less what I could just say into the microphone in 3 words or less.  Let’s do this, Minneapolis!

I don’t know if the Terminal Bar can handle a TweetUp of this caliber, but we shall see! Here are the details:

What: Terminal Bar TweetUp featuring Toby Cryns and his band
Where: 409 E. Hennepin, Minneapolis, MN, 55414
When: Friday, Aug. 14
Cost: $5
Time: 11 p.m.

See you there!

Terminal Bar – HELL YEAH!!!

Ummm…Maybe my title overstated what transpired last night. Maybe not. The Terminal Bar show last night was a blast. My voice felt great, and Ryan and John totally nailed their parts. Put simply, we were in a groove, we were rocking it, and we didn’t take any prisoners. I was dancing and working it so hard that I probably sweat out a cow, myself!

Then, afterwards, the two booking guys were beyond kind and blew more smoke up my ass than I ever thought possible! They were really nice, supportive, and really dug our show. In fact, they liked it so much that they asked to have us back on a weekend night (read: $mucho dinero$). YEEEEHAWWW!!!

Does anyone have any photos from last night?

Sweat. Rock. Terminal Bar.

Sweaty Toby

That photo above is of me immediately after John and I laid down a mean 12-song jam in my apartment last night.  It is HOT up in HRRRR!!!

Tonight, my band will be taking it to the streets!  One night only!  The Terminal Bar.  Us, our instruments, and a gaggle of America’s finest citizens.
We go on at 9:30ish.  I actually don’t know the exact time.  They told me that we go on second.

See you there?

Terminal Bar Rocked!!

Last night’s show at The Terminal Bar in Nordeast Minneapolis was grrrreat! We were a bit rusty, playing our first show as a band in 3 months, but the rustyness equated to pure energy and musicianship onstage. Many times I felt like my guitar chops weren’t up to snuff, but John’s drumming and Ryan’s bass playing picked up my slack and allowed my vocals to bring it home.

Speaking of vocals, my pipes are a bit tired at present, as I have been recording vocal parts for the new record between practice sessions for upcoming shows and yelling at friends on the basketball court (I’m a rather vocal bball player). Speaking of that, here’s some trivia for you – Did you know that I was an NCAA Division II basketball prospect coming out of high school? Of course that doesn’t matter these days, except for the fact that I get to say that, which sounds cool to say – kind of like saying, “I toured the West Coast!” I do love basketball, though. My old knees are barely holding up these days, though, and I am forced to run in straight lines and play lazy defense as a precaution to causing my body serious injury – WTF?!

So I’m playing a show tonight at Corner Coffee at 8 p.m. which will feature Jim from Crows in the Corn on the washboard. Can’t wait! Here’s the map to Corner Coffee:
