Press Kit

Listen to this sampler of Bug Toast’s music.

Bug Toast defies categorization, playing genre-bending, world-influenced, progressive folk on bouzouki, accordion, guitar, bass, violin, and percussion, with textured instrumentation, vocal harmonies and interesting time signatures. Blended from two musical families, the combination of brothers, father/brother/daughter plus husband makes for familial yet unfamiliar music. The group creates the arrangements together, creating richly textured, interwoven pieces with careful attention to counterpoint, voicing, harmonies, and rhythms.

Bug Toast is excited to be a part of the dynamic, innovative, and renowned music scene in Portland, Oregon.

Bug Toast
is flexible with different types of configurations:
* Full band with both acoustic and electric instruments, vocals, a drum kit and an array of percussion instruments
* Acoustic instruments with minimal amplification (only enough so that the bouzouki can be heard next to the accordion!), hand drums and percussion (no drum kit)
* Our full array of original compositions, many featuring vocals and lyrics, but also plenty of instrumental compositions
* Instrumental music only, with our typical influences from around the world
