Can you believe that it has been 20 years since G. Love and Special Sauce released their self-titled debut album that featured the hits “Cold Beverage” and “Baby’s Got Sauce”?  Brings back such great memories of high school days.

Fun fact #1: I was one of the first people anywhere to play the single “Blues Music” on the radio “91.7 WPAA broadcasting live from the basement of Evans Hall on the campus of Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts…”

Fun fact #2: I went to school with G. Love aka Garrett Dutton at Germantown Friends School in Philly.

Now 20 years later we are all grown up, and to the delight of many thirtysomethings, the original lineup of G. Love, “Jimi Jazz” Prescott and “The Houseman” Jeffrey Clemens have reunited to record the new album, Sugar, which will release on April 22.  You can pre-order at Philadelphonic.com.  G and the Sauce have also announced a 20th Anniversary U.S. tour to support Sugar that will include complete performances of their debut album at each stop.  Congratulations to the band for reaching this milestone anniversary and continuing to entertain us.

Check out the video for the first single “Nothing Quite Like Home” below.  The song was co-written with Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons and includes supporting vocals from Ben Harper and Marc Broussard.
