How to Hire SMASH MOUTH For Your Event!
Smash Mouth is an American rock band from San Jose,
California. Smash Mouth (named after Mike Ditka's term "smash mouth football") was formed in San Jose, California, in 1994 when boyhood friends and former band compadres Steve Harwell (vocals) and Kevin Coleman (drums) recruited Greg Camp (guitar) from a local cover band. Camp then persuaded Paul De Lisle (bass), with whom he had played in another outfit, to take a chance on the new band.

Smash Mouth first came to public prominence
when "Nervous In The Alley," a track from their first professionally produced demo tape, was played frequently during April 1996 on local rock station KOME. A support slot to
No Doubt and
Beck at the KOME music festival followed, along with press and record label interest.

Soon thereafter, the quartet inked a deal with Interscope Records, which released their debut, "Fush
Yu Mang," in 1997. Smash Mouth supported the album with extensive touring, including tours with
Third Eye Blind and
Blur, among others. That same year Smash Mouth performed at Edgefest along with Helmet,
Faith No More,
Reel Big Fish,
Our Lady Peace,
Caroline’s Spine, Outhouse,
Artificial Joy Club,
and Groove Pilots.
Despite their meteoric rise, all four members of the band had spent time in other ventures. Singer Steve Harwell came from the most unusual background, having previously led the House Of Pain-inspired hip-hop group F.O.S. (Freedom Of Speech). The other
members are Greg Camp (guitar), Paul De Lisle (bass) and Kevin Coleman (drums).
The far more accessible follow-up, "Astro Lounge," broke into the US Top 10, bolstered by the Top 5 success of the highly catchy "All Star." The band's self-titled third album featured new drummer Michael Urbano.
In 2020, Smash Mouth played at the Buffalo Chip
Music Festival alongside,
Their discography includes seven studio albums, four
compilation albums, 19 singles and 13 music videos.
