Tobin-Wilcox is a delightful music duo known for delivering witty, intelligent lyrics with a humorous twist.
Hailing from Columbus, Jeff Tobin (singer/songwriter) and Geoff Wilcox (vocals/bass) bridge the gap between Bob Dylan and Monty Python with songs that are refreshingly offbeat and irreverent while also poignant and socially relevant. Think pre-Pixar Randy Newman and The Onion stuffed into Simon and Garfunkel, and They Might Be Giants set against a coffeehouse stage.
Tobin-Wilcox has entertained audiences at clubs and festivals throughout Columbus, including Comfest 2013 and Doo Dah Parade 2013. The band’s song “Rocket Belt” was recently featured in Popular Science magazine (an honor The Beatles never achieved, Tobin likes to point out). Jeff Tobin was also a grand-prize winner in last year’s Columbus Bicentennial Song Contest.
Jeff and Geoff are proud to be a part of the Columbus renaissance and extremely honored to be a part of TEDxColumbus 2013.
