  • “Toad the Wet Sprocket” at the Cave

    Aug 16, 2014 | 06:00PM – 11:00PM

    When Monty Python’s Eric Idle created the fictional band “Toad the Wet Sprocket” for the program “Rutland Weekend Television” in 1975, he never dreamed that anyone would actually use such a silly name.   Against all odds, the joke became permanent. “Toad the Wet Sprocket” has been touring ever since with all four original members: lead singer Glen Phillips, guitarist Todd Nichols, bassist Dean Dinning, and drummer Randy Guss. From 1989-1998, they made 5 studio albums which combined sold over four million copies, had five major radio hits, and won over audiences across North America and Europe.

    After breaking up in 1998, Toad would get together sporadically to play shows on a casual basis, but their hard core fans never gave up hope for a new album. After successful tours in 2006-2010, the band finally decided to put the last piece of the puzzle in place and a new album “ New Constellation” was released in the Fall of 2013.

    The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6pm Concert starts at 8pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.
