Our Approach

HybridLiveSound combines the best of live music with the authentic sound that comes from a DJ.  Live show excitement+original recordings=an experience unlike any other.

Meet the Band

Tom and Dave met in 2004 at Towson University, where they were both studying in the percussion department. Their personalities, not only musically, but professionally and personally were a match. After discussing the need in the entertainment world for both live music and the need for studio quality songs, they formed Hybrid Live Sound!
