The Substitutes formed in 2002 with founding members, singer/guitarist Patrick Allen and former percussionist Matthew Hoffman. One year later, with the additions of Andy Buckle on guitar/vocals and Erik Perotti on bass, the Substitutes became regulars at local coffee venues and sandwich shops in the Hartford area. After original member Matthew Hoffman moved overseas, Dave Perotti joined to on drums and/or percussion. Andy Robbin joined the band in 2007 playing the keyboards, ukulele and helping with vocals.
The Substitutes have performed at various fundraisers and events over the years.
The Substitutes' style of music ranges from the 60's British Invasion to today's modern rock.
