Saturday July 9 – NEARFEST (North East Art Rock Festival)

Saturday Sept 10 – PROG IN THE PARK FESTIVAL 2005 – Rochester, NY


All was quiet on the western front until our old friend Pete Pardo of 
Sea of Tranquility http://www.seaoftranquility.org launched a grenade 
into the back of Shawn Gordon's minivan while he was taking his 
ProgRock children out for ice cream.  

Pete has started a website poll entitled "Who is your favorite 
ProgRock Records artist?"! 

As of now, the Froggs are thoroughly getting their asses kicked by 
our good pals in Man on Fire!  We are in second place trailing by 
over 25 votes.  And Cryptic Vision is close behind; their scouts have 
spotted the back of Bill's head in their telescope!

Now people, I understand that the MOF guys are much better looking 
then us.  And you might like their music better.  But keep this in 
mind…a vote for the Frogg is a vote for the chubby kid on the 
playground getting his ass beat for his lunch money…don't let this 
tragedy go on for one more day!

PROGDAY Festival – Support the Cause

Most of you know that anyone willing to sponsor and organize a prog 
rock festival does it for the love of the music and not the money.  
Most of these wonderful events end up breaking even or losing money 
and the ones who come out ahead use that dough to book next year's 

ProgDay is a great example of a grass roots operation that puts on a 
wonderful festival every year!

Lew Fisher of The Progressive Music Society has single-handedly 
enlisted a number of bands for their help in keeping ProgDay alive.  
Nine great bands have donated tracks, six which are previously 
unreleased, for a compilation disc to raise money for the festival.

Tracks from The Strawbs, Djam Karet, Nathan Mahl, Trettioariga 
Kriget, Wobbler, Sonus Umbra, Gert Emmens, The Muffins, and Guy 
Manning.  Many of these bands are friends with the Froggs, it's 
important for us to support each other and the organizations that 
present us to the fans.

How long does it take Steve Uh to buy maple syrup and smoked salmon 
at the border?  If you guessed 40 minutes, you're right!

We had a great time performing in Montreal!  Thanks to Robert, Jerry 
and Denis of Proglands for putting together a great live experience 
for us.

Also, a huge thanks to our new crazy friends in Karcius!  Man, these

I feel the need to tell you about Mike Keneally's upcoming tour.

about the Froggs.
