Badfish

Badfish

with Trae Pierce & the T-Stones opening

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!

Trae Pierce & the T-Stones opening

A veteran of the stage, Trae has been touring with bands such as Sugarfoot’s Ohio Players, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Dr Hook, James Brown and more for over three decades. In addition to his time on the road, Trae has produced and recorded with hip-hop, rock and blues icons such as Flo-Rida, Phil Collins, Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel, and Emmylou Harris. He has made appearances on national television and movies and earned a shelf full of awards including four Grammys, three Doves, and a NAACP Image Award, and yet somehow this virtuoso bassist has managed to fly under the radar. That is about to change. Trae’s solo debut is a bass-driven masterpiece of funk, blues, and rock, featuring soulful hooks, powerful riffs, and the talk-box bass made famous by Trae himself.
