Grammy Award-winning American rock band Hootie & the Blowfish sold over 25 million records worldwide since their debut in 1994. Hootie and the Blowfish is the band that defined alternative rock in the ‘90s, and you probably know all the band’s timeless hits from Hold My Hand to Come Back Song. Their 1994 debut album, by the way, Cracked Rear View, is the 16th-best-selling album of all time in the US that was certified platinum 16 times. The band is also popular in Canada – they have three number-one singles there.
The band Hootie & the Blowfish formed in 1986 - the quartet met during their freshmen year at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. They started by playing cover tunes as The Wolf Brothers and independently released two cassette demo Eps a few years later. By that time, they already adopted their iconic name, which is simply a conjunction of the nicknames of two of their college friends. A year before their official debut, they also pressed 50,000 copies of a self-released EP, Kootchypop. As for now, the band is well known not only for their great music but also for charity work. In 2006, for example, the entire band and crew traveled to New Orleans for five days of building houses in Musicians' Village; they’ve also have sponsored the annual spring Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournament since 1995.
