    Toronto was formed in 2003 in Moscow by a group of young ambitious musicians, and became a source of manpower for the Moscow club scene.

    The band became a striking phenomenon that quickly reached the headlines of the legendary club News Pub on Petrovka. The first band members were Elina Tumayeva - vocals, Dan Yakushevich - guitar, vocals, Ilya Sokolov - keyboards, Alexander Matytsyn - bass, Oleg Grigoryev - drums.

    Yakushevich, Matytsyn and Grigoryev were previously the backbone of another band P.S., and played cover versions of blues hits with Chuck Redgister, an American who had settled down in Russia. After the groups breakup, Dan Yakushevich performed with the "EROPLAN" band passionately tearing strings while playing world rock hits, but was reunited with old friends to create a new band. The bands slogan, as proclaimed by Yakushevich was We play pop as rock, and rock as pop!.

    Oleg Grigoryev soon received an invitation to play in the band Flowers, and in exchange the drumers post was taken by Vyacheslav Emetc. Emetc performed with the band for almost a year. After, his place was taken by Andrey Krotov, a person who had worked with many stars, from Alena Apina to Alsou.

    Staff turnover continued when Krotov and Sokolov (now the Arizona band) left the band, and Oleg Grigoryev returned as drummer, while Oleg Pavlushin joined Toronto on keyboard after performing with the band Kvartal. Grigoriev, who went to work for Vlad Topalov, vacated the seat for Alexander Penkin as drummer (who managed for a time to work with Trofim and Long Play).
    Thus, in 2005, the backbone of the instrumental group was formed.

    A new stage for Toronto began when the band, after a long period of auditions, found young singer Anna Shteh. In 2007, Shteh Anna and Alexander Matytsyn left the band, and created a successful club project Beverly Hills, which exists to this day.

    The new Singer - Lena "Wasp" Osaulenko - and bassist Anton Kaz'min coming from a jazz ensemble Pikaboo, brought fresh notes to the band's sound.
    The autumn of 2008 brought a happy pregnancy to the Wasp and a new band prima - Katya Lapshina, a beauty and a great singer who won many awards at Russian and international competitions with her beautiful and strong voice, and a unique style and charm.

    This is how the golden composition of the Toronto band was formed:

    Dan Yakushevich - guitar, vocals
    ex-Tricky Dan, PS, Eroplan, Angara

    Oleg Pavlushin - keyboards, vocals

    Well gladly consider your musical recommendations and other suggestions! To do this itisnt necessary to register! Its enough to add your name, the message (name of the song) and the verification code.

    How to recommend?

    Its easy to determine the chances that a certain composition will be added, simply by listening to the station for a few hours. Its even faster to get oriented by looking through the TOP100 tracks.

    Three main criteria:

    1) The song should be melodic! The simplest sign of the melodic quality of a composition: desire to sing along. Or, as a minimum, when the song stops the tune should be easily continued in the mind.

    2) Of course melodic songs exist in any genre, but the track must follow our stations format. The format is limited from different sides with a few main directions: soul, funk, rock, disco, blues, reggae and other relatively calm genres. The most important thing is to avoid extremes: metal, heavy rock, rap,"chanson", opera, and other styles will unfortunately stick out from the main direction even with a bright melody.

    3) Good quality! A lot of great music, recorded mainly before the 60s, doesnt have the quality of modern sound recording. This can be taken as motivation to find a good cover.

    All recommended compositions are stored in the music database of the radio and may be playedon-air at any moment, but sometimes this happens with a significant delay.
    After the decision is made, a composition is put on-air and appears in the TOP/30/100 section of recent additions. If a composition was added on the station but attributed to another recommender it means it was recommended by them before you.
