The Me Toos
Musical Inspiration:The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Johnny Cash, The Sonics
Sound: Rock and Roll
The Me Toos are a collaboration of three diverse and talented musicians out of Pittsburgh, PA. The band generates a blues-based sound with rock and roll, garage, and punk influences. The Me Toos were created in 2008 by guitarist/singer Jesse Baldoni and bassist Ben Vivio. Long time drummer Tom Pashby's recent departure gives the band the opportunity to introduce drummer and backing vocalist Kevin Koch.
The Me Toos have played with national acts such as Chicago's The Right Now (soul/pop), Baltimore's Kelly Bell Band ("phat blues"), and shared a bill with Leon Russell at the Pittsburgh Ribs on the River Festival. The Me Toos have also been involved in Pittsburgh's Bloomfest, Snowball, Bash on The Blvd, and The Deutschtown Music Festival.
The band has released a full length album, “When Wilkes Met Barre" and an EP titled "All My Creatures." An exciting new self titled EP was released at Howlers with support from local acts The Neffs and Roulette Waves.
