The Crivitz band TOCCOA not only recorded their debut CD in MCE's studio, but also released it on the MCE label.
TOCCOA was founded in spring 2014 by singer Marc Brendemühl, guitarist Sandy Babenihr and bassist Matthias "Löffel" Weiß, who sadly died in June 2017. In summer 2015, lead guitarist Marcial Garzon from Colombia and drummer Jens Bartels joined the band.
The Crivitz boys quickly gained a firm and dedicated, but steadily growing fan base. The band's own annual music festival "ROCK AM SEE in BARNIN" contributed to their growing popularity, as did numerous joint performances with various US artists on their tours of Germany. In 2015 and 2016, TOCCOA played more than 20 concerts each.
After the death of band co-founder Matthias Weiß, Sebastian Zimmermann was hired as the new bass player. In May 2020, Jens Bartels left the band. Since then, Hubertus Wolf has replaced him on drums.
