If you lived in Lawrence in the '70s and you liked bands like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Tree Frog was the band to see. Known locally for their epic four-hour performances at places like The Lawrence Opera House (now Liberty Hall) and Off-the-Wall Hall (now The Bottleneck), Tree Frog was actually a nationally touring band that was just one big break away from the big time. They never did catch that break, but they did spend a decade on the road playing every college campus and bar-alley bar from Athens, Georgia to Missoula, Montana. Though Tree Frog disbanded shortly after the disco craze hit, the members reunite every couple years to play at Liberty Hall.
