Beginning on stage at TOAD in Cambridge, MA during a weekly residency in March of 2009, Baker Thomas Band has always been an eclectic collection of musicians and good friends getting together to make great music and have a blast. With anywhere from 7 to 10 and even more musicians on stage, the BTB is a wrecking ball of good times and great tunes. Vocal hooks and rock and roll lyrics are backed by one of the sickest bands you'll hear. Horns, violin, mandolin and harmonicas soar over the top, dueling guitars fill up the middle and the bottom is held down by rock solid bass and a thunderous kick drum. The clever and catchy hit songs cover the spectrum of classic rock, funk and groove, with hints of bluegrass and jam band.... so many influences... one big sound. When you think of us, think of 'The Band' We don't sound like The Band, but we are a rolling party. We're loose enough to be spontaneous and fun but we're pros, seasoned musicians and peers who have been crossing paths and sharing stages in the cities of Boston, Cambridge and Somerville for quite sometime. Baker Thomas Band is dangerous and deadly fun. We have The Secret Weapon, The Legend, The Professor, The Shredder, The Dancer, The Young Buck, Big Papa, The Fearless Leader and often more! We are a band of characters for sure! The BTB has our core players, but sit-in performers is the norm on any given night, for we have one of the best bands in town, lightning quick on the uptake and the confidence to ride the line. Come on down to a show and you'll be cookin' up a good time with Baker Thomas Band soon enough!
