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.
Sun-Dried Vibes provide a fresh twist to the reggae/rock genre with their high-energy live performances that crank out infectious sing-a-longs laced with a positive message. SDV will be heard, since their inception the group has played around 275 dates a year. The trio of road warriors quickly became a festival favorite with two full length albums under their belt and a long list of tour history that grabbed fans from all demographics. In 2014 one of the most progressive promoters in the world took notice and added SDV to the major festival 'California Roots: Carolina Sessions' sharing the bill with the Rebelution, Matisyahu, Collie Buddz, Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad, Katchafire and more in Wilmington, NC.
2015 is full of momentum and new opportunities. SDV will set out on a national tour this summer highlighted by an appearance at the largest reggae music festival in the world. California Roots Music & Arts Festival will take place this May in Monterey, CA and the group is humbled to share the bill with SOJA, Steel Pulse, Dirty Heads, Chronixx, The Roots and many more. Sun Dried Vibes will also start working on their new album in San Diego this June.
The ensemble joined forces in the July of 2010 in Rock Hill, SC. On August 28th 2011 Zach Fowler (Lead Vox/ Gtr), Evan Tyler (Bass), and Alex Winchester (Drums) released 'Give Thanks' as their debut album and began filling up rooms along the east coast. On April 8th, 2014 their sophomore album "Back2Square1" debuted on the iTunes Reggae Charts at #6 and the hit single "Young One" ft. Jeremy Anderson (TreeHouse) was featured as the MP3 Leak of the Week by The Pier (www.thepier.org).
Sun-Dried Vibes took home back to back awards for South Carolina's Rock Band of the Year in 2012 & 2013 voted on by the SC Music Awards and were voted Charlotte's Best Local Band 2012 by the Readers of Creative Loafing.
It's not a secret that the Sun-Dried Vibes family includes a very loyal fan base, the higher ups have definitely taken notice. SDV has had the pleasure of supporting major acts of all genres including The Dirty Heads, 311, Slightly Stoopid, Ballyhoo, The Movement, Passafire, The Expendables, Natural Vibrations, The Aggrolites, The Supervillains, Less Than Jake, AWOL Nation, Neon Trees, The Nappy Roots and many more.
See Water is the love child of reggae and punk rock. This up-and-coming band from Charleston, SC will take your ears on a roller-coaster ride through laid-back jams and hard-hitting rock riffs. Their style is similar to that of a mosh-pit on the beach at sunset. If their music was a cocktail, it would be a long island iced tea; at first you think, “There’s no way you can mix all of that together,” but sure enough, you take a sip only to find that it’s delicious and intoxicating.
See Water have been proving themselves in all their unorthodox glory at Music Farm Charleston and The Charleston Pour House, as well as numerous venues throughout the southeast and US Virgin Islands, while performing alongside acts like Badfish, Passafire, TreeHouse!, Fear Nuttin Band, and Sun-Dried Vibes. After their debut release, an acoustic EP entitled 'Diluted Acoustica', See Water began recording their first full-length album 'Hit The Moon' at Truphonic Recording Studios. The album captures the energy of a live See Water performance, with added elements from Charleston's own Ross Bogan (The Movement, Sol Driven Train, Long Miles), Parker DeWitt (Blue Dogs) and Walker Barnes (MooseKick), to name a few. 'Hit The Moon' is set to be released early next year and is led by the first action-packed rock-ska single, 'Echo', available now on iTunes and Spotify. In the meantime, we advise you to hop on the party wagon and join See Water's die-hard fans, the Squid Squad, at their next show.
"When you see a body of water, whether calm or violent, it makes you feel something, and that's what we're here to do."
