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. **Roots Of Creation (RoC) performing Grateful Dub:** Now RoC has taken on a unique new project: *Grateful Dub*. Combining their longtime love for reggae-dub style music and the Grateful Dead, RoC reworked some of the world’s favorite Dead tunes into a new studio album. RoC had the pleasure of working in the studio with the legendary 5-time Grammy winner **Errol Brown** who was Bob Marley’s engineer and now Rebelution’s live sound engineer for this project. *Grateful Dub* is also being performed live in its entirety at festivals, theatres, and clubs around the country, and features rotating special guests including Melvin Seals (JGB), Scott Guberman (Phil Lesh) full horn sections, and others. *Grateful Dub* captures the spirit and magic of the Grateful Dead, while laying it down reggae-dub style.
A family friendly event, attendees are invited to bring their own chairs and blankets. No outside food or beverages allowed on sight. The concert will happen rain or shine.
