Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime
Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime
The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime’s music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime’s essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does.
The Expanders
The Expanders began playing reggae music together in the summer of 2003,
and today are one of the hardest working reggae bands in Southern California.
They have come to be known for their vintage style of reggae, played in the
tradition of classic 1970’s Jamaican groups like The Ethiopians, The Gladiators
and The Mighty Diamonds.
Their music is centered in three-part vocal harmonies and strong song writing,
with lyrics that range from socially heavy to playful and upbeat.
