Sublime is an a cappella quartet singing in the barbershop style, with members in the Grand Rapids and Detroit areas in Michigan, and South Bend, IN.
Sublime began singing together for fun in 2015, learned a couple songs, and loved how it sounded. So we decided to take the plunge, stick together and learn a whole bunch more. We have placed 2nd, 4th and 5th in past regional competitions and are currently the 2022 Region 17 Third Place Medalist Quartet.
We are proud to represent 5 different choruses in three different regions of Sweet Adelines - Grand Rapids and River Bend in Region 17, Fenton Lakes and Motor City Blend in Region 2., and Melodeers in Region 3.
