About Smash Mouth

First of all, the band’s unparalleled wealth of original and legendary material is strong and deep. Smash Mouth boasts five chart-topping smash hits: 1997’s “Walkin’ On The Sun”; 1998’s “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”; 1999’s “All-Star” and “Then The Morning Comes”; and 2001’s “I’m A Believer” are all firmly entrenched in the culture lexicon. Then there’s 2001’s “Pacific Coast Party” and 1997’s “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”...both of which made the top-30.

Combine these with the myriad SM songs that have been prominently featured in movies and on television over the years, and you’ve got a non-stop barrage of greatest hits. A show every audience wants. Quite simply...Smash Mouth not only has the best songs, they have a lot of them.

But the best thing about a Smash Mouth show is it’s unequaled, across-the-board, universal appeal. More than any other band, Smash Mouth is internationally loved by people of all ages and tastes. The band’s clean and irresistibly catchy songs are delivered with such joy and finesse, Smash Mouth is appropriate for literally any event. Loved globally for it’s fun and positive message, Smash Mouth music is also nearly impossible NOT to dance to.

About Remember Jones

Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy. Often backed and supported by a large ensemble of musicians, his original music and creative, theatrical events have played to countless packed and sold-out clubs and theaters throughout the United States.

Remember Jones’ debut album, Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!, was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via IndieGoGo, and created in front of a live studio audience with a 25-piece band. In 2017, his subsequent release, Tranquilizer!, was recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN, under the production of Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Langhorne Slim) and was named one of Paste Magazine and Daytrotter’s Top 10 R&B/Soul Artists of 2017. A 3rd album, currently untitled, is in production and planned for a 2021 release.
