Toy Soldiers (Philadelphia)

Rock/Roots

Remember the Weezer video for ‘Buddy Holly?’ Toy Soldiers could actually fit in on Happy Days. The Fonz would especially love them. Toy Soldiers might be the hardest working band in Pennsylvania. They’re constantly performing, perpetually on tour. It’s not just a matter of the Soldiers wanting to rock, it’s a matter of the band being in rather high demand. The group sits solidly in the Rock genre, but without all the clatter and noise. The group’s The Maybe Boys was released this month through L.A.’s Rocket Science Ventures.
