Hailing from Providence, RI and growing up in the nearby suburbs, Toad and the Stooligans is far from the typical hip hop group. Formed in early 2015, the high school friends joined together with the common goal of playing a different brand of hip hop. Heavily influenced by funk, jazz and a plethora of other genres, the Stooligans mesh multiple sounds together to create a canvas for their dual-vocal delivery.

Since their formation, the Stooligans have played extensively in the Providence area, including winning the 90.7 WXIN Battle of the Bands in 2017 and being named 2018 Breakthrough Hip Hop Act by Motif Magazine. Their debut album, "Very Handsome", was self-released on September 15th, 2017 and was recorded with John DelloIacono at Bridge East Studios in East Brigewater, MA.
