One the most influential bands of a generation is celebrated with the group Sublimed Live.
Drummer Chris Chamberlain, bassist Mikey Ortiz and guitarist and singer Ryan Rickman play songs of Sublime on Friday, Oct. 4, in Whiskey Dick’s Saloon in South Lake Tahoe.
Sublime was known as a ska-punk band. Its music inspired the genre California reggae and bands such as Rebelution and Slightly Stoopid. Front man Bradley Nowell died in 1996.
Opening the show will be Corn Doggy Dog and the 1/2LB. The band is fronted by Todd “Zman” Zalkins, a well-known stand up comic, was the master of ceremonies of many Sublime shows and was the star of the bands video for “Date Rape”.
The Half Pound consists of members of the seminal Long Beach punk band the Falling Idols. Sublime covered their theme song, Falling Idols, bassist Randy Bradbury is currently the bass player for Pennywise, and vocalist David Quackenbush is the signer of the Vandals. In its two albums Corn Dog has redone many of the Falling Idols’ classic songs with the blessing of Bradbury and Quackenbush, who’s names appear in the writing credits.
