COOS BAY — Each season Music on the Bay gives a local band center stage for one of their scheduled concerts, this year Toyz - It's a Rock Show will play the 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, Starlight Series concert in Mingus Park.

This local band has been performing regular gigs and guest performances since the early '90s. Last year Toyz - It's a Rock Show was voted The World's 2016 Best of the South Coast's Best Band.

The band members include: Vinnie Cavarra, lead guitar/vocals; Kevin Mason, vocals/drums; "Dr. Bob" Richards, drums; and Tony Esperance, bass/vocals/keyboards. These musicians have performed for year's which is why they've earned the title of "Best Rock Band" in the 2016 South Coast Music Awards; Vinnie Cavarra was voted "Best Guitarist," Bob Richards "Best Drummer," and Kevin Mason "Best Male Vocalist." The name says it all: TOYZ -“It’s a Rock Show.”
