The Substance’s sound is a combination of reggae vocals with rock influences, similar to acts such as Sublime and 311. “We blend just the right amount of rock into our reggae sound to keep you moving. Our main focus is reggae, but we have a lot of other influences,” explained Dougherty. “Our music has hip-hop, rock, punk, and ska all mixed in with a good vibe.”
The Substance will be performing their unique blend of reggae at the 2012 MODE Island Luau on August 19 starting at 3PM on City Island. The Substance are also currently available for bookings, and can be reached via email at TheSubstanceLive@gmail.com.
