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.

*4 tickets for $60. Limited quantity available, while supplies last.
**To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of 40 Oz to Freedom, Badfish will be performing the album in its entirety
Roots of Creation
Roots of Creation
Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam favorites like Gathering of The Vibes, Wakarusa and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offer up a high-energy, infectious experience. Recognized as a Top 20 artist on the Relix/Jamband radio chart, a festival staple, and an internationally touring powerhouse, RoC have been awarded “Favorite Jam Band” by Cider Magazine and “Best Band In New Hampshire” by the New England Music Awards. RoC mix their jam-reggae hybrid sound with homegrown roots, guitar-heavy rock, and lead singer/guitarist Brett Wilson’s introspective and conscious laden lyrics. Their biggest project to date, Livin Free, is an 18-track studio LP, complemented by a 3-disc deluxe collection with both dub/remix and acoustic versions, plus limited edition double 12” vinyl. Releasing April 22nd on RoC’s label, Bombshelter Records, with distribution by ILS/Caroline/Universal Music Group, Livin Free features Yeti Beats, Melvin Seals, Ras MG, Rubblebucket, Billy Kottage and more
