Flash back in time to the best hits Sublime ever dished out for the world to consume when 40oz to Freedom takes the stage at Agave in Avon on Saturday.

The band won the 2010 San Diego Music Award for Best Tribute and has toured the United States and Canada for more than six years, developing one of the largest tribute band followings in the world. 40oz to Freedom is true to the So-Cal vibe, with thumping bass lines, rad beats and shredding guitar riffs topped off with soul-quenching vocals.

About the band

Front-man Dane Scott, on lead vocals and guitar, is a six-time San Diego Music Award nominee for his work with 40oz to Freedom and his other band, Tubby. His soulful voice and face-melting guitar riffs contribute to an energetic show that leaves the audience craving more.

Scott founded the Sublime tribute band with keyboardist Jeremy Miller. The two have been friends for more than 12 years and have been playing music together just as long. Miller grew up in Southern California and his energetic stage presence and knowledge of the genre make him a great asset to the band.

Terry Davis, on bass and vocals, is a jack-of-all-trades. He’s an accomplished guitar player for the band Egress and also plays bass for numerous side projects. Mark Leblanc holds down the drum kit for 40oz to Freedom and also plays in Egress, as well as Smooth Choppy, DJ Soulman and Idol Job. He has been playing since he was a little kid and has been rocking ever since.

The final pieces of the 40oz to Freedom puzzle are Tom Burda, on bass and vocals, and Chad Cocuzza on percussion. Burda is a Berkley School of Music graduate and currently resides in New York City, where he teaches guitar at The New York School of Guitar. Cocuzza is an accomplished percussionist for the band Spoonfed Tribe.
