The Tosspints' style of music has been influenced by 3 lifetimes of living through the school of hard knocks, brought to bear from war, loss, degradation, and hard drinking. A band created entirely by a family who has had to make it through life the hard way and use their experience to create songs about the more distressed side of being human. Their fast paced no nonsense stage show drives songs straight into the audience one after the other, pushing their own style of up tempo minor chord melodies out with the highest possible energy level.
Made up of brothers Don Zuzula (guitar, vocals), a combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and younger brother and Zak Zuzula (bass, vocals), a union school teacher, along with drummer John Johnson, they draw from their world experience and working class upbringing in the rust belt city of Saginaw, Michigan for their poetically dark yet up-tempo songs.
Their powerful stage presence and unending barrage of music from the beginning of their set to the end of the dark, yet high energy show has earned them spots on stage with iconic underground rock heroes such as The Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers, Murder by death, The Young Dubliners, The Goddamn Gallows, Skinny Lister and Flatfoot 56, as well as earned festival showcases from The Michigan Irish Music Festival, 2013 CBGB's Festival in New York City, and the George Killians Irish Red Ruckus in Boston, MA. Their songwriting skills have been recognized in the 2011 John Lennon Songwriting Contest where they earned a finalist position and their powerful fan support has earned them a spot on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour Ernie
Ball Stage and Alternative Press Magazine Detroit's Band of the Month for December 2012.
