    Years ago, (’88-’98) I owned a bar that featured bands on the weekends, and TOYZ was a favorite in our place – packed the place when they played, and had a great rapport with our clientele. The female lead singer’s name was Ruthie, not Ruby, as you have listed.

      We are far from perfect, that’s why this is an interactive site for West Michigan music history. I will get to it and check it out and change it as soon as I can. Thanks, Doug Taylor Admin
