Natural Vibrations

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, and 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 relocating to the west coast, touring nationally and recording 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 Febuary 2013, and catch them at a show in your neighborhood.
