JOHNNY TOYMAKER is a dynamic, emotionally charged punk pop group born out of the extraordinary Milwaukee music scene. Having played countless Midwest shows, JOHNNY TOYMAKER has built a loyal following of those who love honest, well-crafted songs. Singer/guitarist Nate Kresse’s voice oozes both raw emotion and heart felt attitude, while guitarist Juan Avalos uncorks a bottle of energy each time he picks up his 6 string. Add to this the exploding rhythms of Robert DeAngelis on drums, Anthony Hanratty on bass and the sheer power of the song writing make JOHNNY TOYMAKER a welcome and exciting addition to the "emo/pop/punk scene". With nerve endings exposed, JOHNNY TOYMAKER’s live show is a blistering exploration of the basic questions to which living opens itself. Kinetic and catchy, raw and focused, JOHNNY TOYMAKER drives the audience and creates a world where a guitar line suddenly becomes your next breath, and movement is the only option.
