Vybe was formed in 2002 after the expiration of a group called Virtuous. Vybe started as an R&B cover band, which performed weekly at J's Sport Cafe in Laurel, Md. Eventually, Vybe layered their R&B sound over D.C.'s GO-GO pocket. The streets of D.C. define this style as Pocket Jazz or Grown & Sexy, but we just call it music. Vybe's sound is heavily influenced by Chuck Brown, The Godfather of GO-GO.
Vybe Band performs at various locations throughout the DC Metropolitan Area, as well as nationally. Venues include: Howard Theatre; Smithsonian Museum and the National Harbor - Washington, DC; Miami Beach Convention Center and Mansion Club South Beach - Miami, FL; Tournament Weekend (formerly CIAA Weekend) - Charlotte, NC.
Vybe covers all genres of music specializing in funk, R&B, GO-GO and jazz. The band is comprised of a drummer, percussionist, keyboardist, bassist, guitarist, trumpeter, trombonist, saxophonist, male and female vocalists.
