Well known rock band Sponge is taking over the pool at Sway Pool Lounge to give the audience a taste of the sensation that has been going on since the group officially got its start in 1992.

Sponge released the debut album Rotting Pinata in 1994, which garnered airplay on radio stations across the country and the album’s hit singles “Plowed” and “Molly” were constantly heard on MTV. Both songs landed on the No. 5 spot on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, which caused the album to reach Gold and eventually Platinum status.

The band’s sophomore album Wax Ecstatic released through Columbia Records, featured hit singles that landed on the Top Ten Billboard hits. Songs from this record were also featured on popular films, such as “The Craft” and “Chasing Amy.”

After reaching such a height in their career, the band members reveled in more success with appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Conan O’ Brien Show.” Sponge has also shared stages across the globe with acclaimed groups, such as Nickelback, KISS and Alice in Chains.

After decades of hard work, the band is still going strong. Sponge is currently touring to promote its most recent EP Destroy the Boy. For more information on Sponge, visit
