The Dred I Dread Team
A One Man, Reggae, Funk, Hip Hop, Soul band with a high energy, and intricate "looping" style mixed with a positive uplifting message creating a laid back, "no worries", feel good type of vibe! El Dub plays all instruments live in real time, including, beat boxing, guitar, bass, keys and harmonizing vocals and loops them into layers that end up sounding like a full band with just one man!
Hard at work touring full time for the past 3 years, El Dub has been making a name for himself playing Nationally and Internationally throughout the US and Canada. His one of a kind “loop” style has landed him performances at many notable festivals and venues including SXSW, Vans Warped Tour, Spirit of Suwannee Music park, and Phases of the Moon to name a few. His unique Reggae, Funk Hip Hop style have earned him the opportunity to perform alongside the likes of 311, Matisyahu, Dirty Heads, Slightly Stoopid and many more.
Currently El Dub is touring in support of his 3rd full length CD “Feelin’ Alive” which is packed full of uplifting vibes and positive messages covering genres from reggae, to funk to hip hop, and space.
