25th anniversary!? That’s right everybody, believe it or not, Reel Big Fish has been around 25 whole years!! Who would have thought that when we started this band in high school way back in the early 90′s that we’d still be making music and touring the world in 2016! Thanks SO much to everybody who has supported the band over the years by coming to the shows, buying our albums and merch and allowing us to make playing music our job! All year long at our shows we’ll be celebrating our 25th anniversary by playing songs from our first 1992 demo tape! You’ll hear songs like “the May Song”, “Soma Holiday”, High Chair” and all the great songs from WAY back in the day…JUST KIDDING, We won’t be playing any songs from our first couple of years as a band because NOBODY including us would enjoy that!

“Beer” Turns 20!!!

It’s been exactly 20 years since we debuted our song “Beer” at a small club in Long Beach, CA.
Our horn players at the time had just quit the band so Aaron Quickly scrambled to write a few songs with no horns for the upcoming show. The setlist also included “Go Away” and “Why Do All Girls Think They’re Fat”.
When we went in to the studio in 1996 to record “Turn the Radio Off” our producer/record label president INSISTED that we add horns to this song because we were a “horn band”.
Times sure do change because when we were recording “Why Do They Rock SO Hard” in ’98 that same guy who forced us to add horns to Beer asked us for a “No Horns Mix” of the album because horns were “Out” in the music industry. We of course refused as you can tell…any way, if you’re still reading this, you must be really bored! Have yourself a beer and enjoy the video!!

the Don’t Stop Skankin’ European Vacation is over…here’s some pics to prove it actually happened!

We just got back from our 7 week UK/Europe tour and we just can’t believe how amazing it was!
All the club gigs and festivals were so much fun, there wasn’t one bad show on the whole tour! We made lots of new friends and got to hang out with some old ones too! Awesome to see our friends from Sonic Boom Six, the Skints and Coolie Ranx too!
A reel big thanks to everybody who came out to see us play and support us, you guys rule!
A huge thank you to Ed Larsen from Suburban Legends for filling in on the drums this time around while the Rabbit AKA the Red Nightmare AKA Ryland Steen was off playing with the band America.
Ed is an awesome drummer, a swell human being and he makes one hell of a delicious margarita!
Also, huge thanks to the Magnus Puto and the Jellycats for supporting us at the UK club shows. Special thanks to Emma from the Jellycats for singing with us every night on “I Know You…” and “She Has a Girlfriend Now” too!
And a gigantic thank you to the Sigourney Weavers and Band Geek Mafia for their support on all our German shows! Great bands, great people, good times, that’s what a Reel Big Fish tour is all about!
Now it’s time for us to relax at home and have ourselves a beer before we head out on tour again!

Here’s some pics of our fondest memories of “the Don’t Stop Skankin’ European Vacation”:
