Toadies-&-Fuel-ConcertWhat: Toadies & Fuel Concert
When: Friday August 14, 2015

Description: Toadies are an alternative rock band from Fort Worth, Texas. The band’s best known lineup consisted of Vaden Todd Lewis (guitar, vocals) Mark Reznicek (drums), Lisa Umbarger (bass), and Clark Vogeler (guitar). When the band reformed in 2006, Umbarger amicably declined to participate and has been replaced by Doni Blair. They are best known for the hit single “Possum Kingdom,”

The band reformed for a reunion show on March 11, 2006, headlining the Greenville Ave St. Patrick’s Day parade concert. Toadies toured extensively throughout the 1990s, opening for such artists as Red Hot Chili Peppers, White Zombie, Bush, and The Butthole Surfers. They also headlined and co-headlined tours with acts such as Brutal Juice, Baboon, Supersuckers, and The Reverend Horton Heat. The primary reason for the breakup of the band was that Lisa Umbarger simply did not want to be a part of it anymore, and bandleader Todd Lewis felt that the band could not continue without her. Since disbanding, members of the band have gone on to other projects. Todd Lewis is now in The Burden Brothers and Mark Reznicek is now in Eleven Hundred Springs.
