Acclaimed as Toronto's best party band,

The Carpet Frogs formed in 1993 when Just Alice front man Nick Sinopoli teamed with infamous jam band Ground Zero.


Canadian rocker Greg Godovitz (GODDO) was a member of the band until 1996. His tenure resulted in the group's sophomore release Frog Curry. The album charted nationally and garnered a U.S. distribution deal. 


In 1995, The Carpet Frogs received dual nominations as Central Canada Independent Artist Of The Year and Q107's Best Independent Act.


In 1998, the band captured the attention of Canadian Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member Burton Cummings. After an impromptu jam at a local Toronto pub,  The Carpet Frogs became The Burton Cummings Band.








After performing as The Bachman Cummings Band on the nationally televised CBC special and DVD Bachman Cummings: First Time Around The Carpet Frogs joined the two Canadian rock icons on a seventeen-city Canadian tour.

The band then backed Burton on his 2010 combined CD/DVD release, Above the Ground.


By invitation of the Canadian government,        The Carpet Frogs entertained 20,0000 Canadian, American, and Australian troops in the Middle East cities of Dubai and Kandahar.
