The Long Beach Dub Allstars are an American dub/ska/rock band formed in 1997 and disbanded in 2002, but reformed 10 years later. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_0

History Long Beach Dub Allstars_section_0

Initial career (1997–2001) Long Beach Dub Allstars_section_1

Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh met in childhood (in 1979) and later started their first garage punk band, consisting of drums, bass and vocals. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_1

In 1988, with Bradley Nowell, they formed the ska punk and reggae rock band Sublime, which went on to sell over 17 million albums worldwide. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_2

After Nowell's fatal heroin overdose in 1996, Wilson and Gaugh founded the Long Beach Dub Allstars (LBDAS), joined by frequent Sublime contributors Michael "Miguel" Happoldt, Todd Forman, and "Field" Marshall Goodman. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_3

Eric Wilson said: "We will never replace the greatness that Sublime did or what Bradley has done." Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_4

The LBDAS were originally a 10-piece and they recorded their debut recording called Right Back, which shortly after completion in 1999 saw the departure of three members. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_5

Their second album, Wonders of the World was recorded and released in 2001. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_6

It featured "Sunny Hours" featuring will.i.am from The Black Eyed Peas. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_7

"Sunny Hours" was also used as the theme song for the Friends spin-off Joey. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_8

Breakup and aftermath (2002–2012) Long Beach Dub Allstars_section_2

In 2002, rumors that the band had broken up began to surface. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_9

Apparently the band had taken a hard-drug-free vow and some of the band's members had broken this vow, which caused Bud Gaugh to quit and join Eyes Adrift with Krist Novoselic of Nirvana and Curt Kirkwood of Meat Puppets. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_10

Gaugh subsequently played with Kirkwood and Michael Happoldt in the band Volcano. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_11

Eric Wilson, Trey Pangborn and RAS-1 formed Long Beach Shortbus with former Slightly Stoopid and temporary Sublime drummer, Kelly Vargas (later replaced by Damion Ramirez). Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_12

Marshall Goodman, Jack Maness and Opie Ortiz formed Dubcat, with members of Hepcat. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_13

Shortbus has had slightly more success than Dubcat, though the latter has yet to release an album. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_14

Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh have been reunited in Sublime with Rome, a new incarnation of Sublime which chiefly performs songs by that band and features Rome Ramirez in place of Bradley Nowell. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_15

Reunion (2012–present) Long Beach Dub Allstars_section_3

On September 1, 2012, Long Beach Dub Allstars played their first show in 11 years at the Queen Mary Events Park next to the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, where they opened for The Wailers and played alongside Tribal Seeds. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_16

Then on September 30, 2012, Long Beach Dub Allstars performed at the Yost Theater in Santa Ana, California, where they opened for Fishbone. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_17

They played another show at the Brixton Southbay in Redondo Beach, California on January 25, 2013 with the local Redondo Beach Band Special "C". Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_18

The reunion lineup consists of Marshall Goodman "Ras MG" on drums, Michael "Miguel" Happoldt on lead guitar/vocals, Opie Ortiz on vocals, Jack Maness on vocals/guitar/keys, Tim Wu on sax/flute/vocals, and Edwin Kampwith on bass. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_19

Although there is no set release date, be on the lookout for some new music coming from the Long Beach Dub Allstars in the future. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_20

When asked what kind of style the fans could look forward to hearing in the new material, Jack Maness stated, "We’re doing some of the things that we’re true to and we’re also expanding into some other stuff." Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_21

According to Opie, they are currently doing some home recording but will definitely be looking to get into a studio. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_22

"Where ever we can get a good sound" is what was said in regards to that. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_23

Without giving too much away, the Long Beach legends hinted that we can expect some guest appearances on their new releases from artists they have worked with in the past, as well as new artists that they have plans on working with in the future. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_24

In 2017, the group toured across California and played one-off shows in Nevada and Florida. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_25

They are set to play two shows in San Francisco and Sacramento early in 2018, as well as a gig at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on April 19. Long Beach Dub Allstars_sentence_26
