Biography

Formed in 2007, Spred The Dub has been keeping crowds dancing all over South Florida with their own brand of "Good Time Reggae" music - infusing elements of jazz, soul, funk and rocksteady with a foundation of dub, ska and roots reggae to create sonic landscapes and massive drum & bass riddems. They have been hard at work making a name for themselves, playing stages all over the state…from local beach bars to club venues, opening for national touring acts like Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Passafire, The Movement and reggae legends like The Skatalites, Eek-A-Mouse, Black Uhuru and Yellowman. Their sound is sure to get people in the groove!

Originally starting out as a weekly reggae jam night at a local venue in Palm Beach, the group has slowly but surely become a mainstay in the South Florida reggae scene. In their early years as a 12-piece ensemble featuring multiple percussion players and musicians, their music was based on improvisational jams and instrumental vamps. It was this "dub" sound that became the bands musical style and eventually lead to the name Spred The Dub.

Over time this massive group of players has evolved into a smaller core unit of members.
Mick Swigert (aka Micky Vintage) has been providing the reverberated vocals and rhythmic skank that have characterized STD's sound since the earliest days of the group. Newest addition Sam "How Ya Doin?" Szpendyk plays both trombone and keyboards, adding a much needed dimension to the sound. . Kevin "KJo" Johnson (bass) and Johnny "Fresh" Leonard (drums) are the rhythm section responsible for building a rock solid foundation of thundering riddems for lead guitarist/dub fx master Corey "Scrubs" Tyler to work his mad scientist guitar stylings over. Together these players gel into one of the freshest sounds in South Florida reggae. Their set list includes a host of well-crafted original songs which range from upbeat rocksteady rhythms to thick, soul-moving roots jams. These songs coupled with their unique renditions of modern classics and rejuvenated reggae standards, creates a show that is intriguing and true to the soul.

With several major projects in the works, the future for Spred The Dub looks very bright. Their weekly shows on Monday nights at Reef Road Rum Bar have turned the Clematis St. restaurant into the hottest reggae venue in West Palm Beach, and 2012 will see the release of their first studio EP. In addition to their regular schedule of shows throughout South Florida, you will also find them on the "Reggae Wave" compilation CD and tour featuring the best local reggae bands, powered by legends "Inner Circle".

This is the next chapter of Spred the Dub’s legacy, and with the new tunes, dubbed out covers, and hand-picked venues, you are sure to see why there will be plenty more "Good Times" to come.
