REEL BIG FISH
The ska-punk re-revival of the 1990s may have waned, but Cali’s Reel Big Fish is still rocking the “kids” nearly 20 years since the band’s debut. RBF’s infectious and spastic show, laden with corny humor, remains a must-see for fans of the genre and party types everywhere. The group may not break the charts like Sublime, No Doubt or Rancid did, but these cats still bounce onto the stage, horns blazing, and have a grand old time. Their 2009 covers album, Fame, Fortune and Fornication, is a blast, with one of the funkiest versions of “Brown Eyed Girl” ever committed to tape.
