181. Toad the Wet Sprocket at South Barrington Arboretum Music Fest

 Anyone up for a FREE music festival this weekend?  Prepare to flash back to the 90’s because Toad the Wet Sprocket is one of ten bands performing at the Arboretum of South Barrington’s two-day Block Party and Music Fest, which starts at noon tomorrow.

There’s a great lineup of performers for both Saturday and Sunday, but the headlining band is Toad the Wet Sprocket performing at 8:30 on Saturday night. Named in honor of a sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe, this 4-piece band of Santa Barbara, CA high school cronies came to be known as Toad the Wet Sprocket in 1986. The band’s big commercial breakthrough came in 1991 (the year I graduated from high school) as the single “All I Want” became a Top 20 hit. Another single from Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Fear LP, “Walk on the Ocean,” also became a successful track for the band.
Here’s a look at the scheduled performers for the fest and an oldie but goodie by Toad the Wet Sprocket……
