Toast and Jam is a “rootsy” Bend, OR based duo featuring Ben Delery and Jeff Miller on two acoustic guitars with dynamic vocal harmonies.  Don't be surprised if you also catch us with a piano, harmonica, ukulele, djembe, a banjo, or our full band!  While we would characterize our style as acoustic folk rock, our extensive set list ranges anywhere from The Eagles and Steve Miller Band to The Dave Matthews Band, James Taylor to Guns and Roses, Jason Mraz and even some Frank Sinatra.  We will work with you to create the ideal soundtrack for your event.

 

Ask us about having chickapig at your next event!

So why Chickapig? Here’s why….. its awesome… but also because the guitars Jeff and Ben play at the shows are built by master luthier Brian Calhoun who owns Rockbridge Guitar Company and creator of Chickapig. Jeff got turned onto Rockbridge because he is a die hard Dave Matthews Band fan and Brian builds guitars for Dave. Jeff commissioned Brian to build him a guitar a while back and in the process Jeff fell in love with hand crafted quality of the guitars but also the home grown board game Brian invented with the help of Dave Matthews. What started out with humble beginnings, with Brian’s mom making the pieces out of scrap guitar wood, has now turned into a national phenomenon. So much so that NPR did a special broadcast on the game. Check it out here. When you come out to a TNJ show ask about chickapig and we can get you a board and teach you how to play. You won’t regret it!
