Sublime (Band) photo

Are you a fan of Sublime? Me too!

“Sublime was an American reggae/punk/ska band from Long Beach, California, United States. A more detailed look at the band’s stylistic influences reveals a mix of reggae and dub, Ska, punk, progressive rock, acoustic rock, hip-hop, and dancehall.” (The Vogue)

You can bring “Dylan Santiago Does Sublime” to your venue and enjoy up to 2 hours of live hits including Santeria, What I Got, Badfish, Wrong Way, Doin’ Time and more!

This works best as a full 3 to 4 piece band for a more authentic Sublime experience!

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

“Your voice sounds so great with the tone of the uke!”

– Hannah C.

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

Dylan Santiago is a baritone-ukulele playing, singer/songwriter from the Salem, OR area. His sound can be described as a cross between Jack Johnson/Jason Mraz/Ed Sheeran. As a classically-trained tenor, he likes to add powerful vocals to memorable melodies accompanied by the acoustic, harp-like sound of the baritone ukulele. Since 2016, he has been writing songs and performing internationally during his travels across Europe and Asia. In August 2020, he recorded, produced, and released his first EP, “The KL EP” in his bedroom in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Since 2021, he’s become a full-time musician in the Pacific Northwest.

“You’re the best music I’ve ever heard in person”
