Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated band, Smash Mouth will grace the stage at the Tri-State Rodeo on Friday, September 8th.  They will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut, smash-hit album “Fush Yu Mang”, released July 8th, 1997.  Out of nowhere, the single “Walkin’ On The Sun” was an immediate international sensation. (Quickly shooting to #1 on the Billboard charts, and eventually boosting “FYM” sales to over 3 million copies in the U.S. alone.) In the two decades since, Smash Mouth has not slowed down. In fact, they are as vital and vibrant as ever.
Smash Mouth didn’t slow down after the success of “FYM”, they racked up a string of top-ten hits, including “All-Star”, “Then The Morning Comes”, and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby” with their follow-up album Astro Lounge which approached quadruple platinum.

Smash Mouth’s third, self-named album, features the jubilant first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m a Believer”. Around this time, Smash Mouth crosses over into the film world by providing the musical heart of the soundtrack for “Shrek”, and even making a cameo appearance in the movie “Rat Race”. In recent years, Smash Mouth has focused on entertaining troops in such places as Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

A look back at Smash Mouth’s formative years shows us a band determined to make an impact from the get-go. Formed in 1994, the band immediately begins recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood, CA. In June of 1997, Smash Mouth is signed to Interscope Records when label brass catch wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being ADDED to highly influential LA radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin (!) of their song “Walkin’ On The Sun”.
2017 will also see the band releasing a new album of all-original material. And though I’m not allowed to divulge any details…look forward to seeing a whole lot of Smash Mouth on your TV screen very soon. 2017 is already shaping up to be a banner year for the veteran San Jose rockers.
