Tracy Jo and the Toads
After living and studying music in New Orleans, performing with members of The Grateful Dead, The Disco Biscuits, Jen Durkin, and many more; Tracy Jo got together with former MOJO bandmate, Jon Kamal, to form a new group featuring the singer in the northeast.
Tracy Jo & The Toads is a blend of blues and gritty soul brought together as true rock n' roll. With a clear roots rock influence, the band is led by a young, vocal powerhouse. Each member of this close-knit group of musicians brings their own professional and developed sound to the stage.
With rich harmonies and songs reminiscent of Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Alabama Shakes, and early Etta James; Tracy Jo and the Toads bring energy and new life to a classic sound. If you're a fan of rock n' roll, you're already a fan of the toads.
