This little band of musical frogs is hidden in a series of tall arborvitae hedges. It’s not easy to find, but when you do, your motion triggers a Dixieland jazz performance!

    Fun! Something about this reminds me of The Triplets of Belleville.

    Oh yeah! This is exactly our musical band at the very beginning of the journey. Now we are quite successful on Soundcloud and all thanks to the help of Promosoundgroup. These guys helped us promote our music and songs in just a couple of months and now we just enjoy life, perform at corporate parties and already have a good army of real fans.
