MEET THE HEADLINERS
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! Badfish is made up of Pat Downes (Guitar, Vocals), Joel Hanks (Bass), Scott Begin (Drums), Dorian Duffy (Keys, Guitar).
PaperCutt is an 80s Hair Metal band with a flair for performance. They like to hang out with peoples moms and sisters backstage! Papercutt also drinks lots of Jack Daniels and Malibu Rum. Also, Papercutt enjoys a good novel by Danielle Steel. The band is comprised of Thorny Rose (Screeching Vocals), Skid Mark (taste tester & Rhythm Guitar), The Shredder (Noodling Lead Guitar), SLYDE-ON-IN (Droppin’ the Bass), Tug Boat/Tony Lee (Cowbell & Drums). They’re sure to show you a good time.
