Alternative rockers Incubus, brought their cool California vibes to Blossom Music Center last night.

Led by singer Brandon Boyd, the band kicked off the show with "Nice To Know You" from their 2001 album Morning View

The band doesn't really move around very much on stage.  Everyone is pretty much stationed at their post, except Boyd who will dance around center stage and will occasionally go from one side to the other.  

That is okay, because the band members seem to be concentrating on the music.  Which by the way, was played very loudly but still had a clean mix.  

Early in the set "Wish You Were Here" had almost everyone in the pavalion on their feet and singing along.  

A highlight of the show saw the band play a snippet of The Doors classic, "Riders On The Storm" in the middle of "Are You In?"

In the middle of the set, Boyd and guitarist Mike Einziger took center stage to do an acoustic version of "Mexico."

After playing a surprise cover of the Lenny Kravitz hit "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over," the band broke out "Vitamin" from their 1997 album S.C.I.E.N.C.E.

The nineteen song set came to a close with a two song encore, "Warning" and their biggest hit, "Drive."

Sublime with Rome brought their own California ska vibe to Cuyahoga Falls.

Eric Wilson, the only original member of Sublime, is keeping the music of Sublime alive by having Rome Rameriz on guitar and vocals and Josh Freese on drums.

These guys do an excellent job.  Rameriz, a self professed fan of Sublime, is clearly having a great time on stage and when he's not singing, he has a huge smile on his face.

All of the Sublime hits were played including, "Wrong Way," "Date Rape," and "Bad Fish." A couple of original tunes were also thrown in like "May Day" and "Black Out."

The last two songs of the set were primarily sang by the entire audience.  "What I Got" and "Santeria" were joyfully played by the band.

An all female outfit called the Aquadolls opened up the show with a fun mix of original tunes and a nice cover of the Go-Go's "Vacation."
