This is an E-mail I recieved about Frogg Cafe's tour. They started out as a Zappa Cover Band and play a very complex style of music. Check 'em out at ProgRock Record website. I'll be ordering this soon.
This is an exciting time for Frogg Cafe and we thank everyone for contributing to the support of our music. We have really felt appreciated at our recent shows and it is a great feeling to perform under those circumstances. We also owe a ton of thanks to the many people who are working hard for us behind the scenes in Germany, Belgium, Austria, Canada and of course here at home. This Saturday marks the beginning of a series of live shows and events that we've always dreamed of being part of!
So here is what we are up to, hope to see you soon!
