Natural Vibrations, aka Natural Vibes or Natty Vibes, is Hawai'i's most popular and acclaimed band from the Windward side of O'ahu. They started out as a group of friends who loved playing music and went from playing backyard parties to headlining some of Hawai'is biggest shows and venues. Since 1996 they've recorded 6 full length albums featuring a sound with strong roots in reggae, rock and pop. Their unique musical blend combined with a party and dance energy has allowed them share the stage with artists like Prince, 311, Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley, UB40, Jack Johnson, Pepper and SOJA, to name a few. The same sound and vibe that has earned them the respect of some of reggae's biggest names has also brought them multiple Best Reggae Album and People's Choice awards at the Hawaii Music Awards, as well as, Hawai'i's prestigous Na Hoku Hanohano Awards.
"Our biggest accomplishment is to after 15 years still be playing and producing music that is loved and anticipated by our fans."
Thats the driving force behind their current goal to relocate to the west coast, tour nationally and record new music. With the help of Polynesian Underground, Natural Vibrations will embark on new territory and new listeners.
Look for their newest single, "Make You Stay" to be released November 2012, and catch them at a show in your neighborhood.
San Francisco powerhouse, Native Elements has been keeping the energetic, feel-good reggae tradition alive in the Bay Area for over 20 years. Comprised of 9 seasoned musicians with decades of experience in rock, metal, blues, jazz and hip-hop, this eclectic and fearless crew fuses their unique influences into a contemporary, melodic, horn-driven party. Each show takes their audience through improvisational peaks and valleys from blazing guitar solos to soaring saxophone wails while also delivering an authentic reggae foundation. Having grown up together since elementary school (playing in garage bands and skateboarding) in Daly City and South City, CA, Native Elements bring a uniquely warm experience to the stage that is both entertaining and uplifting.
Clear Conscience is a mix of reggae/rock/hip hop blended properly to give you that rootsy island one love feeling. Over the past decade, the band has strived to bring great music to their fans all around the world; and in this time they have produced more than 9 amazing albums, compilation tracks, live/acoustic albums, and hope to continue providing the music fans have come to learn and love!
