The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes

Smash Mouth

July 09,2022

Turlock, CA (May 13, 2022) – “Hey now you’re a rockstar get the show on” and get to Stanislaus County Fair, where The Fun is Back!

The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes American Multi-Platinum Rock Band

Smash Mouth! Saturday, July 09, 2022, at the Xfinity Mobile Concert Series on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m.  The concert will be hosted by I Heart Radio and is free with the price of Fair admission.


            “You can’t help but dance and sing along to “I’m a believer” such a great memorable song!” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. The Fun is definitely Back! with this amazing American Rock band!


2022 is upon us. Another fresh new reset of the month odometer!

But this particular New Year is especially exciting and significant for Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum legends Smash Mouth…as it neatly coincides with a fresh new beginning for the San Jose rock/pop icons.


This year welcomes a shockingly improved and utterly re-energized Smash Mouth with the proud introduction of their hugely-talented new front man Zach Goode.


The New York City-born, Los Angeles-based Goode boasts a dazzlingly impressive, never-ending list of stage credits as both actor and singer. His beautifully rough-and-tumble…yet pitch-perfect and rangy…vocal style instantly proving a perfect match for Smash Mouth’s beachy brand of high energy Alt-pop.


A look back at Smash Mouth’s formative years shows a band determined to make an impact from the get-go. Formed in late 1994, the band immediately begins recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood. In June of 1997, Smash Mouth is signed to Interscope Records when label brass catch wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being ADDED to monumentally influential L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin’ On The Sun”.


Smash mouth’s major-label debut “Fush Yu Mang” goes more than DOUBLE PLATINUM and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece; 1999’s brilliant follow-up album “Astrolounge”. Boasting three top-ten hits (All-Star…Then The Morning Comes…Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby), sales for “Astrolounge” nearly double those for “Fush Yu Mang”. Approaching nearly QUADRUPLE PLATINUM status.


Several catch phrases come to mind with Smash Mouth at the dawn of 2022. Onward and upward! Bigger and better! New and vastly improved!


But here’s the reality: Smash Mouth is now poised to consistently deliver the best live show you’ll see in 2022.


And here’s why: Ammunition. Smash Mouth has the best songs. And more of them than any of our friendly competitors. Period.


And in new recruit Zach Goode, Smash Mouth has landed the perfect commanding/veteran front man who will return them to the top of the mountain. And keep them there.


So, buckle your seatbelt and brace yourself for Smash Mouth in 2022.


It’s guaranteed to be a thrilling and fulfilling top-billing super-thing.


You’ll see…

…and hear.
