The Toreadors was founded in the fall of 2008 and made few gigs. The band got properly started in the fall of 2009 when they started to rehearsal for backing up Mick Lewis of Whirlwind in January 2010 in Helsinki. After that gig we played few years as a Rockabilly Trio and backed up Nick Dadd and Mick Lewis of Whirlwind on their Finland gig.
The Toreadors has played back up for Original 50’s artists Joe Clay and Hayden Thompson, Rhythm ’n’ Blues artist Little Gizzelle and Revival Rockabilly artists Jimmie Lee Maslon and Mick Lewis and Nick Dadd of Whirlwind.
After few years the band increased with a Saxophone player and three years ago with a Piano player, so the current line up is a quintet including Aki Linneo on Drums, Timo Tarkela Saxophone and Vocals, Tomi Valasvuo Double Bass and Vocals, Hessu Pirhonen Piano and Tommy Dahlström Guitar and Vocals.
The Toreadors are active playing gigs and recording and sounding better than ever.
