Toad the Wet Sprocket Coming to Hawaii!

One of my all time favorite groups from the early 1990’s was Toad the Wet Sprocket or “TTWS” as fans like to call them.  I’m stoked to hear that they are going to be coming to Hawaii performing at the Royal Lahaina on Thursday, May 5th and  performing at the Royal Kona Resort on Friday, May 6th.

I’ve got lots of favorite TTWS songs but my all time favorite is probably this one… “Walk on the Ocean”:

…On April 12th, 2011 the band released a new Greatest Hits album titled “All You Want” in digital and disc form via their official website, the 11 track CD includes brand new studio versions of their hits, this will allow the band to regain their publishing and licensing of these songs, as they have no access to the versions they did for Columbia Records in the ’90s, aside from their first two albums, which they have regained full control over and plan to re-release, in remastered form, on their own label, Abe’s Records. this new hits disc will be released into stores and on all digital retailers and online retailers later in the summer.

Another favorite song of mine was “All I Want”:

Dave Lawrence from Hawaii Public Radio informed me that he learned of the concert from a previous post I had written and he contacted the management team of TTWS and now has gotten a performance by their front man Glen Phillips on Oahu as well.

“…Singer/songwriter Glen Phillips, the front man for the successful American indie rock band Toad The Wet Sprocket, will make his debut in Hawaii Public Radio’s Atherton Performing Arts Studio in a solo concert on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. In addition to his single Oahu performance, he will also be performing a solo concert on Kauai (May 5th in Kapaa), following which, he and Toad The Wet Sprocket will be performing on Maui at the Royal Lahaina Resort on May 6th On May 7th, the band will also appear in Kailua-Kona at the Royal Kona Resort…”

I’m stoked the Royal Kona Resort has been bringing in so many quality groups of late!
