WHO ARE THEY: Badfish are a three-piece tribute to Sublime, the innovative rock/pop/groove band whose career was cut tragically with the death of lead singer Brad Nowell in 1996. The band incorporates the spirit of Sublime into an authentic tribute that is not only accurate, but has been incredibly successful. Badfish maintains a rigorous touring schedule and has a dedicated following of fans who offer much support.

WHAT TO EXPECT: One of the tragedies that was associated with the death of Sublime lead singer Brad Nowell was that many of the people who wound up become fans of the group never got to see them perform live. Thanks to Badfish, fans are able to experience the energy and emotion of what a live Sublime show was all about. Although the surviving members of Sublime ended up reuniting in 2009, it hasn’t slowed down Badfish one bit. This is a top notch act who has logged many miles under their belt on the road and Sunday’s show at the House of Blues at Showboat Casino Hotel should be a rocking affair.
