The tribute band came together in 2001 when a bunch of computer science majors from the University of Rhode Island decided that they needed to carry on the Sublime legend. They started playing at different dive bars around town, and audiences everywhere were falling in love with them. Soon enough each and every show was sold out and they were starting to work out a concert tour across the country.
Making up the works of Badfish are Joel Hanks on bass, Scott Begin on drums, Pat Downes on vocals and guitar and well as Dave Ladin on vocals and guitar and last but not least Ben Schomp on horns, keys and guitar. Badfish have been playing around the country from college town to city to concert halls far and in between. Much of their loyal fan base stems from those avid Sublime fanatics who never got the opportunity to see the world famous group before the passing of Sublime's guitarist Bradley Nowell back in 1996.
