For years, Spred the Dub's war cry has been, “Good Time Reggae.”
But what the hell does that mean? It means that whenever this seven-piece gets together, like a rock and roll baby Jesus, a party has just been immaculately conceived. It means the word “boring” isn’t allowed into their vocabulary. It means that the drunker they get, the better you dance.
Mick Swigert, more affectionately known as Mick Rude, leads the band of merrymakers on vocals and rhythm guitar. On bass and backing vocals is Kevin “K Jo” Johnson alongside drummer Ryan Cross, forming a mighty rhythm section. Markis Hernandez on sax and Sam Szpendyk on trombone often steal the show. Newcomer Elijah Taj Gee is a maestro on keyboards and is quickly learning his way around the band’s empty beer bottles. Last but not least is Hunter Hutchings on lead guitar, who doesn’t say much on stage, but shreds and sure is pretty to look at.
And there’s also Rudeboy. He’s a dog; Mick’s to be exact. He doesn’t play instruments because, you know, he’s a dog.
Formed in 2007, Spred the Dub are going on ten solid years of performing all over Florida as they are easily one of the hardest working local outfits in the state. For their efforts they’re often been lauded by fans and critics. In 2016 they were awarded “Best Reggae Band” by the Broward-Palm Beach New Times and in 2017 they followed that up with a win in the “Best Band” category by the Miami New Times.
They’ve opened for The Dirty Heads and NOFX. They’ve performed at benefits for both animals and humans. They survived their first international tour in the UK, wowing the Brits with their sunny sounds and drinking abilities. Hell, they’ve not only survived, but have thrived in a waning South Florida music scene.
