Platinum-selling band Toad the Wet Sprocket, folk-rockers Dawes and folk-pop "Wild Child" Brett Dennen come out to play for the KFOG Concert for Kids. Named after a Monty Python comedy sketch, Toad the Wet Sprocket became one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the early '90s. Their alternative pop sound had just enough of the jangly college radio sound, melded with smooth, listenable pop melodies to make them a hit with modern rock and mainstream music fans. They became a commercial success after the release of their 1991 album Fear, scoring hits with "All I Want," "Fall Down" and "Walk on the Ocean." They'll mix old favorites with new music from their first release in over 15 years, New Constellation. Learn More

For many enthusiasts, David Murray is already a jazz legend, if we look at the number of albums he has recorded, of concerts he has performed and at the number of awards with which his career to date has already been crowned (Grammy Award, Guggenheim Fellowship, Bird Award, Danish Jazz Bar Prize, musician of the ‘80s by the Village Voice…). However, just over a quarter of a century into his career, his music still expresses the verve and inspiration of youth, throughout a career which is prolific as much in terms of output as in terms of musical orientation (from the World Saxophone Quartet, of which he is one of the founders, to his octet, not forgetting his big band and the encounter with the Gwo Ka Masters of Guadeloupe, amongst many other groups and creations), all of it with the greatest musicians. David Murray goes down as a worthy successor for some of the biggest names in jazz, and he is now contributing to the rise of young talents such as Lafayette Gilchrist, a young pianist who has already been widely acclaimed by the critics.
