In 2011, the concept's founders began by inviting musician friends to come and “jam” with them to the music of Toto, giving its name to Totojam. Quickly, a core of loyal and motivated musicians was formed: this is how the tribute was born.


Concerts followed, notably on the big Funkytown stage of the Geneva festivals in 2012 and 2013. After a 2-year break (2015-2016), some members have changed but the Totojam spirit remains the same.


The group is currently working to expand its repertoire by drawing on Toto's many albums. It is also difficult to choose from the rich discography of this legendary group.


Toto Jam is made up of 6 musicians: Lolo on keyboard, Renato on guitar, Jack on bass, Bernard on drums, Dudu on vocals and Welma, backing vocalist.

Passion, high standards and professionalism, around thirty legendary pieces from the American group.


The group is structured and surrounded by a team made up of:

- Christian Alciato, their dedicated sound engineer, who is the contact person for technical aspects.

- Corinne Marion-Gallois, their manager and manager of the New Gold Dream Records label, contact person for the organization of all their concerts and contractual aspects.
