One Question Interviews: Frog

Tom White (Frog)

SPB: What do you remember of playing your first live show?

White: We played 15 second covers as a house band for a live improv comedy show. We played between acts, but most of the acts didn't know we were going to play, so they would walk out and start talking, and then have to stop so we could belt out a few seconds of "The Scientist." We played one original song at the end of each night, and at that point our only song was "Nancy Kerrigan."  

We played 5 or so of these shows before we had enough material to play an actual full set to an actual empty bar. That was an amazing time for us. Huge thanks to Danny Jolles.
