Brand New Friend" is the first single off the new album "Introducing, The Jelly of the Month Club." The Jelly of the Month Club was founded by a group of friends and fellow music lovers that include Bud Gaugh and Todd Forman of Sublime, Bert Susanka of The Ziggens, Mic Dangerously of Zen Robbi, and Mr. Crumb of Mr. Crumb. The Club's first offering is an upbeat feel good folk song with hints of swing jazz and knee-slapping bluegrass that echoes a bygone era of American roots music. The song explores the joy of making new friends as told by Mr. Bullfrog, a guitar-strumming vagabond. On his musical adventure he befriends the banjo-plucking Mr. Firefly and the xylophone-rocking Mr. Alligator as they lend their unique voices to the building chorus that celebrates the meaning of camaraderie and friendship. If you listen carefully, you might just hear the soft whistling of the reeds and the cool hum of the Bayou.


Mr. Bullfrog sitting on a lily pad singing a song
he's been hopping along all day
He loves to sing and play his guitar every evening in the swampy marsh....all alone, always

He never hung out on the log with any of the other frogs
for a while he was on his own
Then one day Mr. Firefly heard the frog and he stopped on by he said "Hey there Frog I'm a banjo player. Let's make this a duo what do you say"
the frog said..
Wah, Wah Wah
There's nothing like a brand new friend

So Mr. Bullfrog and Mr. Firefly singing their songs
they're both playing along all day
they love to sing and strum those guitars every evening in the swampy marsh
Then one day Mr. Bullfrog said,
he said "hey there Mr. Firefly, you think there's someone that we could find that knows how to play the xylophone?"
Then right out of the everglades popped out Mr. Alligator he said
"my name's Mr. Alligator as you know. And I love to play my xylophone."
Wah, Wah, Wah
There's nothing like a brand new friend
