Toledo Kesch

Tasty, swampy blues

Toledo Kesch

Portland, Ore. is home to Toledo Kesch. Based in the blues, their sound can best be described as rock-n-roll nuanced with southern flavors and a Northwest edge. Together for over 20 years, they’ve developed a sound that is at once familiar yet grooves with original rhythms and percussive sounds reminiscent of bands such as Little Feat, Steely Dan and the E-Street Band. Tasty guitar, swampy keyboard solos, full vocal harmonies and an always with solid rhythmic underpinnings make that notorious flavah come alive. Their distinct sound is on display in their two most recent records For The Money and their self-titled Toledo Kesch. Songs such as the groovin' "Slow Down Jeffrey," the soulful "Always Be Mine," the country western tinged "Dangerous" and Brazilian street party "That Thang" are all available on iTunes, CDBaby and from the smiley person at the merch table at their gigs.

TK is sought after for private events, as well at various venues in the Portland area including Secret Society, Duff’s Garage, Trails End and The Tilicum. The guys have also performed for the Local Roots Live Series which was recorded and aired on Salem's KMUZ community radio.


They also filmed a live performance at CCTV, which was aired in both Salem and Portland, Ore.
