“You are brilliant, and I’m not just saying it! I adore your tone! So smooth, suits the song fully! I am your fan now, I will be back more than gladly! Honestly impressive!”

Mihaela Claudia P.

What are your live performances like?

Overall, I can easily play up to 4 hours of covers and originals. Covers can include a wide range of songs: The Beatles, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Police, Jazz Standards, Classic Rock, Acoustic Hip Hop, Dance Songs, and much more!

If you’re looking for a more intimate, acoustic setting, then I can play solo for your guests to enjoy.

Or I can play as a trio band (with bass and drums added) for a fuller, livlier set — This ensemble is very flexible and works well in all kinds of spaces and venues. Here’s a video of us playing “Hemingway”:

I’ll be sure to provide all of my own sound and lighting equipment (if needed), show up early (at least 30 min before showtime) to set up and sound check, and take a moment to meet the audience and pass out free stickers!

In addition, I’ll invite family, friends, and promote the event online!

Where can I find you on social media?

“Your singing was, obviously, brilliant. Your cadence, pronunciation, pitch, runs and emotion were all present, in buckets. You also know how to write a chorus: It’s one thing to have a catchy, high energy chorus, but fitting some elegant, expressive lyrics into it is a beautiful thing indeed.”

– Pitchfork Joe

Can you explain your style/music/history? (bio)

Dylan Santiago is a traveling, baritone-ukulele playing, singer/songwriter who grew up in the small city of Keizer, Oregon. When he moved to Orange County, he continued to study music, started performing at open mics, and soon began writing his own songs. During his travels across Europe and Asia, he would busk in the streets and play impromptu sets in local bars and cafes — which eventually lead to recording promotional videos, teaching workshops, and playing festivals. He is known for his unique playing style, powerful vocals, and expressive lyrics. His sound can be described as a cross between Jason Mraz/Jack Johnson/John Mayor.

“I wanted to reach out because I’m a big fan. I signed up for your newsletter…. I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s near Long Beach, California, so I love your Sublime covers. Very good.”

Andrew M.
