Straz Center for the Performing Arts - Carol Morsani Hall
Adam Duritz (vocals), Jim Bogios (drums), David Bryson (guitar), Charlie Gillingham (keyboards), David Immergluck (guitar), Millard Powers (bass) and Dan Vickrey (guitar) - have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multiplatinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993. The band is currently finalizing their seventh studio album, scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2014. This album will be the band's first new material since 2007. Toad the Wet Sprocket released their first LP, Bread & Circus, 25 years ago on their own independent label, Abe's Records. Now, they've just released their latest, New Constellation, on the same label and in the same spirit of unwavering independence, but this time with the help and enthusiastic support of their fans. Toad the Wet Sprocket (Glen Phillips on lead vocals and guitar, Dean Dinning on bass and vocals, Todd Nichols on lead guitar and vocals, and Randy Guss on the drums) share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course of those 25 years.
