Our Story

Rockslide has strong dedication to a blend of Classic and 80's rock. Rockslide has captivated crowds from Reno to the Bay Area for the past 26 years. The group has performed at nightclubs, corporate events, and private parties.

Providing lead vocals and guitar is Tony Tuoto. Tony has performed in several club bands in Northern California. His voice is reminiscent of Lou Gramm or Paul Rogers while his musical roots lay in the blues of the Allman Brothers and vintage Clapton.
Filling out the musical texture of the band is multi-keyboardest/vocalist Thad Foster. Though classically trained, his musical influences include Jonathan Cain and Elton John. Thad's southern rock vocal styling brings an added dimension to the group.


New member Daren McGavren brings strong lead vocals to the band. His lead guitar sizzles and his slide guitar screams. Daren is a graduate of GIT and has a wealth of performing experience. From Joe Perry to Carlos Santana, Daren is a master of multiple styles.
The cornerstone of the Rockslide rhythm section is  bassist Ike Reeves.  Ike's solid bass playing helps lay the foundation for the band. Ike has performed with multiple bands with a wide variety of styles.


Rockslide is fortunate to have two very talented drummers that alternate performances. Both Mitch Rothbardt and Rick Jensen bring a wealth of talent to the band!!
