About The Toyes
Grants Pass, OR
The Toyes are an American Reggae/Rock band originally based on Oahu, now living in Grants Pass, Oregon. Their guitar-heavy style has been described as a "cross between Bob Marley and Barenaked Ladies." They are perhaps most famous as the original songwriters and recorders of the song "Smoke Two Joints". It was originally recorded in 1983, and was re-released on their 1996 debut album The Toyes. An influential version was recorded by the band Sublime; the song has since been mistakenly attributed to them or to Bob Marley.
