the bandů
forgotten toys is a modern/contemporary rock band that is currently working on completing their third CD. The members of the band are seriously involved in their musical projects, and all have several years of valuable stage and studio experience.

the CD ...
The last forgotten toys CD was a full-length/12-track record entitled 'through the window'. That record is a driving rock record, creatively blending straightforward rock instrumentation, catchy hooks, melodies, harmony, and at times, an edgy modern 'techno' sound. With a focus on 'quality', their last CD was mixed and mastered by two of Chicago's finest: Chris Shepard of Chicago Recording Company (Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, Dave Matthews, etc.), and Dan Stout of Colossal Mastering.

radio airplay...
forgotten toys have enjoyed a small share of airtime on a few major Chicagoland radio stations and about a dozen college stations (check the radio page on the website for audio links). Their recorded original music has received a decent amount of airplay, and they have also done a few interviews and live performances on-the-air.

buzz from the press...
forgotten toys has been the focus of articles and reviews in several newspapers and publications. Some attention has been given to the new CD, as well as their shows @ the House of Blues, Double Door, and other venues.

fans & following...
The lead vocalist of the band, Dae, has regularly done solo acoustic performances at least twice every month for years. This consistent exposure, as well as forgotten toys' energetic live shows, has resulted in a solid, steady following, producing consistent turnouts at clubs and venues.

fund-raiser efforts...
new day productions, with the help of Dae & forgotten toys, has worked hard at organizing and participating in several fund-raiser/benefit shows (Midwest flood relief, Toys for Tots, Animal Shelter Benefits, etc.), some of which have received national attention for their successes.
