Known throughout the California coast for their infectious grooves and uptempo concerts, Badfish have developed a reputation for being one of the finest ska reggae bands on the West Coast. Formed in 2001, Badfish has become one of the biggest club and theater acts, consistently selling out many shows at some of the most prominent venues throughout the country, turning several hundred fans away from the doors each night. Badfish rivals the biggest tributes in the music business. 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 attitude of Sublime cannot be faked, so Badfish doesn’t try – its own tribute is one that works. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime’s music, Badfish, A Tribute to Sublime has continued to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for quite 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. They are brought back to Revolution by popular demand! Don’t miss this show!
Twenty years into its pioneering journey, Gainesville, Fla., natives Less Than Jake – comprised of lyricist/drummer Vinnie Fiorello, vocalist/guitarist Chris DeMakes, vocalist/bassist Roger Manganelli, saxophonist Peter “JR” Wasilewski, and trombonist Buddy Schaub – have had their fair share of moments. For a band obsessed with interacting with its fans, both online and after shows; for a band that is so concerned with making sure the fan gets the perfect experience, with well-known hijinks in every live performance; for a band with seemingly unlimited creativity in the form of physical products, from custom-made cereal boxes to unique vinyl packaging; and for a band that is so passionate when writing new music, 20 years begins to seem like an even longer amount of time. Ever-adapting to the constant change in an unsure music industry, LessThan Jake is still making cannonball-sized splashes in the deep end while many of its peers timidly eye shallow waters.
