Trimmed down Toques and Beards still rock it

E-mail Print PDF

The Slice had a decent crowd for the New Weather Machine and a trimmed down Toques and Beards.
 While I just missed New Weather Machine, I was interested to hear a trimmed down Toques and Beards including Taylor Ackerman and Brett Skauge trading guitar and bass and Tyler Bird on drums with all three singing lead vocals.

 They began their set with a couple songs I hadn’t heard before, including the superb ‘Trash’ sung by Ackerman who was also on guitar for this one.

 They even threw in a Dr. Hook cover and then picked up the tempo with a couple upbeat numbers. They work well as a trio though I missed Jason Schultchen’s bass playing and vocals, which gave the band a little something extra.

 They tapped into their country side on a  great cover of David Allan Coe’s ‘Time Off for Bad Behaviour.’ Then they tapped into a set of more Sadies style psychedelic country rock featuring music from their CDs.
