With their sunny blend of ska, punk and reggae the four guys of Starfish take you straight to the beach.
Coming from the Northwest Coast of Holland this might not really come as a surprise. These boys just breath the sea and summer beach life, and turn this into an explosive party with flip-flops flying around. After an inspirational time in Central America singer/guitarist the Admiral starts the band with bass player Peter Schillemans, drummer Elmar Lambers and Thomas Wobben on guitar and keys. Influenced by the Long Beach scene with bands like Sublimeand Slightly Stoopid, ska punk legends like Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake and Jaya the Cat, Starfish quickly makes a name for itself with their energetic live show and wins Dutch awards like the IJmond Popprijs, Sencityprijs and Mixtream Festivalcontest.
