Ska-punk band Reel Big Fish to perform at Music Fest 2013

Reel Big Fish

The ska-punk band Reel Big Fish known for songs such as “Sell Out” and “Take on Me” will perform at Music Fest 2013 at The University of Toledo.

The free outdoor music festival will take place Friday, Sept. 13 on UT’s Main Campus and will feature Reel Big Fish and a variety of other to-be-announced musical guests.

Reel Big Fish released last year its seventh studio album Candy Coated Fury (Rock Ridge Music). It is the band’s first album of newly recorded material in five years.

They first hit the music scene in 1995 with the self-released “Everything Sucks” that gained word of mouth attention and led to their sophomore studio album “Turn the Radio Off” and future success.

Reel Big Fish also is known for its appearance in the movie “Baseketball” and their song “Take on Me” was featured on the movie’s soundtrack.

The band tours continuously playing more than 250 show a year all over the world and Toledo area fans will have the opportunity to hear them live 9-10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13 at Music Fest 2013.

Stay tuned for future performer announcements and the complete lineup.
