‘Peace Frog’ brings the drama and rock theater that made the Doors famous. Dark and spooky, mystical and hypnotic, the band demonstrates the ability to transform any room into an actual Doors concert experience.

In his too-short career, Jim Morrison wrote some of the most haunting lyrics in his era. He told his fans that ‘Peace Frog’ was based on a childhood experience seeing Native Americans in Arizona on the road after being hit by a car. Morrison co-founded The Doors during the summer of 1965 in Venice, California. The band spent two years in obscurity until shooting to prominence with their number-one single in the United States, “Light My Fire,” taken from their self-titled debut album. Morrison wrote or co-wrote many of the Doors’ songs. He recorded a total of six studio albums with The Doors, all of which sold well and received critical acclaim.
Born in Melbourne, Florida, in 1942, his nomadic childhood took him to many different locations throughout the United States with his father, an admiral in the U.S. Navy. He attended St. Petersburg Community College and Florida State University in 1962 and 1963 before going to UCLA to earn a degree in filmmaking in 1965, the year he co-founded The Doors in Venice, California.
The band spent two years in obscurity until shooting to prominence with their number-one single in the United States, “Light My Fire,” taken from their self-titled debut album. Morrison wrote or co-wrote many of the Doors’ songs, including “Light My Fire”, “Break On Through (To the Other Side)“, “The End“, “Moonlight Drive“, “People Are Strange“, “Hello, I Love You“, “Roadhouse Blues“, “L.A. Woman“, and “Riders on the Storm“. He recorded a total of six studio albums with the Doors, all of which sold well and received critical acclaim. He died unexpectedly at the age of 27 in 1971 in Paris, France. As no autopsy was performed, the cause of his death remains unknown.
Morrison was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Doors in 1993. Morrison can no longer perform live, but when you witness ‘Peace Frog’ you will think you are at Doors concert. It is a must-see for all Doors fans and for anyone looking to experience an amazing recreation of a Doors show!
