Spred The Dub / Press

“a mix between Sublime and Slightly Stoopid...hints of rock, jazz, funk and blues, all mixed with heavy basslines, twangy guitar riffs and some serious reverb and dubby breaks.”

“The band knows how to keep this eager crowd entertained with ass-shaking originals and "this is my jam!" covers...”

“The band’s good-time sounds infuse rudiments of funk and R&B with a groundwork of roots-reggae and ska.”

“As a reggae band, they function in a similar manner as Quentin Tarantino does as a film director. They wear their influences proudly on their sleeve, but only hardcore fans who really take the time to dissect and do the research will be able to figure it out. Like a good cocktail, the ingredients are mixed well-enough that you know what went into the making, but you don’t spend much time dwelling on it because it tastes so damn good.”

““Be Free” from Spred the Dub, jumps and skanks with group chants and rude boy charm.”

“South Florida roots purveyors Spred the Dub have built up a large local following with their deep-dubbing gooey goodness.”

“Apart from a few forays into classic Two-Tone style Ska and some well chosen covers (including a turn on Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” that’s a supreme guilty pleasure), Spred the Dub do just that, combining original grooves, classic cover tunes and improvisational exercises into lengthy, mood-altering dub trips, that can stretch long enough to test the expectations and attention span without losing their infectious danceability.”

“With so many bands emerging on the reggae scene it can be difficult to create a sound so unique that people actually stop and listen. South Florida based Spred The Dub doesn’t only make you stop and listen, they make you dance. ”

“With their smooth vocals and professional sound, you will not be disappointed by this band no matter what kind of music you like.”

“Local dub enthusiasts Spred the Dub were the ideal choice to warm up the crowd this evening. STD's rootsy rocksteady grooves proved to be as infectious as, well, a highly transmittable STD....never sounding as traditional as Marley nor as ska-punk-ish as Sublime. That's probably why STD is so damn catchy; they really have carved out their own spacey-reggae-with-a-rock-kick.”
