“Word on the street is that DMX cut out on you.” said Yellow Dubmarine guitarist/lead vocalist Jonathan Sloane “We’d never do that to you.”

What DMX failed to do, Yellow Dubmarine were more than willing, as the reggae-styled Beatles tribute band performed for the crowd at Vinyl Music Hall. The Washington D.C. group played Vinyl days after rapper DMX cancelled two back-to-back concert dates at the popular Pensacola, Florida venue.

As a unique tribute to the Beatles, the members of Yellow Dubmarine, Robbie Cooper (drums), Jonathan Drye (percussion), Mario D’Ambrosio (sax), Aaron Glaser (bass), Matt Hotez (trombone), Luke Schuster (keys) and Sloane travel the world playing Beatles classics and have even recorded dub-laced remake of “Abbey Road” entitled “Abbey Dub”.
