From BluesTraveler.net:

Frogwings began as an Allman Brothers/Aquarium Rescue Unit side project in 1997, with Edwin McCain as the lead singer. The band ran off five gigs in seven days in late May 1997, and the jazz/rock/calypso/metal fusion began. Founding members Butch Trucks [drums] and Jimmy Herring [guitar] were joined by the Burbridge brothers, Kofi [flute] and Oteil [bass], as well as Butch’s nephew Derek [guitar/, and band and percussion-mate Marc Quinones. The successful May run was followed by a two-week trip up and down the East coast in December, and this run cemented Frogwings as a permanent part of the Allman Brothers Band sideshow.

After a single Florida appearance in 1998, Edwin McCain was forced to leave the band due to issues with his record label [McCain was becoming a national star in his own right due to several hit singles off his latest album, Misguided Roses and the label no doubt wanted him to concentrate on his own band] and Blues Traveler’s John Popper was recruited as the new voice of Frogwings. Butch Trucks recalls the initial meeting between Popper and the rest of the band in a 1999 interview with JamBands.com:

Oh wow, I had no idea what would happen. We wrote a lot of stuff with Edwin and now John’s come in with his harp and his writing and his singing. It’s a lot harder edge now, a lot more rock ‘n’ roll oriented. It’s fun. I’m enjoying the hell out of it. We’re just going at it. We’re writing songs and playing and just having a ball doing it. [...] We worked up 14 songs in five days last week. John Popper and Oteil were writing a song a day. It was amazing. They run the gamut from a calypso song to The Thrill Is Gone kind of a blues feel to a really uptempo Latin groove to one that is almost industrial thrash rock. On the surface, that’s what you’re hearing, but when you listen to what the bass and the guitars are doing, it’s fucking incredible. Really cool. It’s like industrial rock meets James Brown.

After rehearsing together for only two weeks in late January of 1999, the newest version of Frogwings hit the road with an inaugural gig at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI, supported by Derek Trucks’ band, whose leader pulled double duty all tour long. Two nights later, the band began a three-night stand at New York’s Wetlands Preserve, and rocked the house for over two hours each night, including a guest appearance by ex-Allman Warren Haynes on night two’s encore of Hot ‘Lanta. The entire tour was recorded for a live album, eventually entitled “Croakin’ At Toad’s”, released in late 2000. After the album was released, Dean Budnick interviewed Derek Trucks, again for Jambands.com, in which the younger Trucks reflected on the band’s genesis, tour and future.

Earlier in 2000, Butch Trucks and company began a record label, Flying Frog Records, taking on jam-band types such as Schleigho and the Slip. No further plans have been announced for Frogwings as of now but whenever band members are free, there is always the possibility of another brief tour…

* with violin only

Possibly the most-hyped show the band has ever played, this was billed as “where rock & roll slams into a full symphonic orchestra”. The band played with 25 members of the Paramus Symphony Orchestra backing them and even made the unusual step of releasing the setlist ahead of time. Me’Shell NdegeOcello and Medeski, Martin & Wood played sets with the orchestra to open the show, Chris Rock emceed the evening’s events, and DJ Swamp played a short set before Blues Traveler took the stage.

After the main set was played, the band left the stage and the lights came up, leading to much displeasure amongst the crowd – many of whom were expecting a full show – so the band came back out to play an impromptu encore, joined by one brave violinist from the orchestra (who had remained on stage).

Notes:
- Track 1 cut in during Chan’s guitar intro; I faded in.
- Clone provided to me had a cut in d1t11 where it was obvious some music
was missing. Cut patched with an audience version of the track that had
been included as filler on the same tape; the patch runs from 4:11 to
4:36 and was matched as closely in volume as possible.
- Minor dropout at 10:10 of d2t01.
- Tape stopped after the end of d2t05; no music is lost.
