Toast Party is an alt­-rock band based out of Austin, Texas and has been playing numerous gigs in Austin and Houston in the past two years.

Benny Rose, aka Jake Laporte, is the brains behind most Toast Party tracks, recording the very first few tracks on his own in his bedroom. With the live band, he is on the guitar & vox while Stuart Sayes and Alex Duck keep the groove alive on bass and drums.

With soft, catchy verses and loud choruses that you can sing along to, these guys give you the best of both worlds. Some tracks remind me of Toro y Moi and others remind me of Cajun Dance Party. Benny Rose’s production chops really shine on their tracks and from the videos on their Facebook.

These guys know how to interact with their crowd no matter how big or small the venue is. You don’t want to miss these guys at MR Fest.
