A Review of the Toto Sydney Concert
When billed as one of the world’s most accomplished musicians, TOTO were no ordinary band. Steve Lukather, the band’s frontman, made an impression as the last to enter the centre mike. The crowd erupted and began playing air-guitar as he praised his fellow musicians. TOTO were ready to tear the house down. During their encore, the crowd was ecstatic, and roaring with excitement and anticipation, the band took the stage.
Toto’s versatility is evident in the variety of songs they have recorded and performed. The band has been a top choice for music festivals and events for decades and continues to evolve with time. With a range of styles ranging from classic rock to modern pop, Toto is one band that never disappoints. The group is also known for their trademark synth lines and big hits. The Toto Sydney concert exemplifies these qualities.
Before joining Toto, David Hungate had worked with various bands. His repertoire ranged from soft rock to pop/rock, and from adult contemporary to arena rock. He has also played with jazz, soul, urban contemporary, country, and more. Although Hungate was originally a session player in L.A., his versatility and talent made him the perfect fit for the band. Toto’s lineup was largely made up of busy studio players, but Hungate’s versatile playing style made him the perfect fit for the band.
While most people associate Toto Hongkong with their legendary drummer, the band has also been the subject of a documentary film. David Paich was the band’s keyboardist, and is also one of the group’s award-winning composers. Paich wrote numerous hit songs, and he also sang lead vocals on several of their biggest hits. He co-founded the band with Jimmy Porcaro when he was in high school.
