Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime
Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime
Badfish is a tribute band dedicated to playing the music of Sublime. The group is named after a song appearing on the album 40oz. to Freedom. Formed in 2001 at the University of Rhode Island, the group's members, who were computer science majors, began playing local Rhode Island clubs and quickly began selling out shows. They continued touring the East Coast and Midwest of the U.S., becoming popular on college campuses among Sublime fans who never were able to see the band due to Bradley Nowell's 1996 death. Since then the group has done multiple national tours per year. In 2008, the band was nominated for Best Tribute Act in the Boston Music Awards.

"Think of God as a great ocean... though we all might take different streams and rivers to get to him, we're all essentially going to the same place." - Mighty Mystic

Considered one of the leaders in the East Coast Reggae Movement, reggae artist Mighty Mystic's fresh sound and musical diversity has proved to be a magnet for music lovers in search of something refreshing and new. It has attracted listeners of all ages, and from all walks of life. A charismatic man on a mission: Mighty Mystic has gone from being a fan of reggae music, to being a contributor to the art. On November 24, 2010, after releasing singles for nearly four years, Mighty Mystic released his debut, full-length album "Wake up the World" which hit iTunes, Amazon, and everywhere digital downloads were sold, by storm. The album peaked at #4 on iTunes Reggae Charts, and unleashed 17 brand new original tracks, mixed with fan favorites out into the world. Mystic shares, "My album can be summed up in one word: Universal. Music is life, and life is very broad, so I wanted to design something that can suit all people, that was my mission with this album".
