03-27-2009 – Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Prescott, AZ

A fantastic show at Embry-Riddle last night. The crowd was fantastic (even ‘Spring Break Guy’) and the campus activities board was super accommodating! These are the kind of college shows I like! Here’s what was played…

Thanks again to the students and staff of Embry-Riddle! I’m just hoping I didn’t get caught by any of these pesky roadside Radar Cameras they have here in Arizona!

The Throwing Toasters song ‘Rainbow’s End (The Generic Irish Song)’ which was the theme song from the Myopic Productions film ‘Rainbow’s End’ was played during a St. Patrick’s Day set of tunes on this week’s Dr. Demento show! Tune in if the good Doctor is on in your area, otherwise, you can listen to the show online at www.DrDemento.com!

Yes, you read that right, O.Y.M.A. was played at a college show. I have to add at the request of the Campus Activities Board! Again it was so much fun playing this show, having family and friend sin the crowd along with the great O.I.T. staff and students! I’ll add some pictures when I get back to Burbank, but they outdid themselves on the publicity! Posters, lighted board outside and the coolest was they presented me with a toaster at the end of the show! SO much fun! THANKS O.I.T.!

03-11-09 – Willamette University – Salem, OR

This was a fun show. I was booked to host this show which was a talent show featuring acts made up of W.U. students. The acts were all fantastic, from the band, to the solo singers, to the jugglers, to the guy who walked on a basketball and sag, to the winner: an amazing breakdancing act!

Here’s a list of what I played…

NEWS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

Comedian To Play Oregon Institute of Technology,
College Where His Parents Met

Burbank, CA, March 3, 2009 – Grant Baciocco’s comedy music act, Throwing Toasters has played some pretty impressive shows. He’s opened for the legendary “Weird Al” Yankovic and has played a sold out show at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. On his current nationwide college tour, however, the one gig he’s looking forward to is his Thursday, March 12, 2009 show at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls, Oregon.

When asked what’s so important about this gig, Baciocco smiles and says, “Simple. If it weren’t for OIT I wouldn’t be here. My parents met while they were both students here in the early seventies.” Grant Mother, then Christina DeVore, grew up in Klamath Falls. She graduated from Klamath Union High and went on to study at OIT. There she met a young man from San Francisco, Greg Baciocco. “They met at the mailboxes in Residence Halls one day and the rest is history.” Jim DeVore, Grant’s Grandfather still resides in Klamath Falls and so does his Aunt and three of his cousins.

Grant will be brining his comedy music act, Throwing Toasters to O.I.T. at 7:00 PM on March 12, 2009. The show is in the Student Union Auditorium and is open to the public. Non O.I.T. students are $3. The show is free for current students. “I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ve been pestering my parents on details about their time here and hope to use some of that information in the show.”
