If you'd like to help out the Froggs and be a street team member, please reply to this e-mail and let us know. We need help with local promotion for all of these shows listed above. We need good folks like you to help us out by putting flyers up, contacting (or providing us with info about) radio stations, newspapers, online websites, and any and all media outlets you can think of. You can really make a difference in helping to keep our original music on its feet. It's an MTV world and we don't have anything pretty enough to "expose" at the Superbowl Half-Time show to get some free shock publicity! But seriously, the odds are against any group trying to go against the musical norm. People who are willing to help are priceless, we'd love to hear from you! NEW STUDIO CD We are coming to the end of the recording process for our 3rd studio CD entitled "Fortunate Observer of Time". This one is a HUGE project; marimba and violin are being recorded as we speak. We're real proud of this recording and can't wait to share it with you. Pre-sale will be announced soon. FREE LIVE FROGG RECORDINGS All you have to do is join the LILLYPADD and the shows will arrive at your doorstep to burn and pass along!

Roach III is ready to launch the 2nd offering so this would be an ideal time to join.
