I should have known it was a Froggy…

I remember the first time I played my Froggy Baritone was at the Ovation Center in Madison, WI, which by the way is one of the greatest venues in America. I forget the sound guy’s name – he’s been there forever– but I play the first few notes on it starting a sound check and he literally yelled from the top deck, “What the f__ is that?”

“It’s a Froggy baritone.”

“Yeah, I should have known it was a Froggy, but the baritone thing is new to me.”

And I said, “It’s new to me, too.”

I get that wherever I go.
