The Powdered Toast Men is a two piece acoustic 90s alternative rock tribute band. They perform a wide selection of songs from the days when all the bands went unplugged . Formed in early 2014 as a result of a mutual love for the rock music of the early 90s and the belief in the greatness and purity of the stripped-down acoustic sound, The Powdered Toast Men seek to bring all of your favorite 90s alternative rock, grunge, and pop classics from bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, and many more as well as one-hit-wonders and deep cuts you haven’t heard in years.
Price Range: $300 and up
Gig Length: 90 - 300 minutes
The Powdered Toast Men perform up to 4 hours/sets of acoustic guitar and vocal covers of over 30 early to mid 90s alternative rock, grunge, and pop bands -the variety of bands we perform is surpassed only by our enthusiasm for performing the songs. We love to play the hits from the era as well as those radio singles you haven't heard in a while. You will hear a variety of songs from bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Gin Blossoms, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Live, Nirvana, Counting Crows, Sublime, Oasis, Stone Temple Pilots and many more. A perfect fit for small venues, bars, restaurants, and private parties as well as large crowds. The band has a minimal load-in time and stage footprint and can provide a PA large enough for a medium sized event.
We also welcome private clients to suggest bands that they would like highlighted. Our combined repertoire features a wide variety of classic and contemporary rock, pop, RnB, soul, reggae, and country. Additionally, if there are availability or budget conflicts, the members of the duo have more than enough material and ability to perform solo sets for your venue or event - please inquire further if you are interested in this option. Generally solo sets will be less expensive, offer a bit more song diversity, and may be more appropriate for smaller, more low key events/nights/venues.
Additional Booking Notes
Our setup is simple. 2 vocal mics with stands, 2 acoustic guitars.
