Who are we?
That's a good question and one we've been pondering for years!
Actually, the Vibe is made up of 5 very talented guys
and a lot of very special people who assist us, support us and pitch in to help us out from time to time
so the guys in the band can do their thing.
We've added some new faces (still a couple old ones)...and some new, old faces!
Randy Stout...started Vertigo Vibe in 2003 with a clear vision...to assemble a group of exceptional musicians who take their hobby seriously, but have a focus on fun! That first meeting of the band members in February, 2003, in the attic, proved to be fate, as the formation of Vertigo Vibe finally took shape. Randy provides rhythm guitar, vocal harmony and a sense of organization and direction for the VIBE. He assists with the bookings, handles the "administrative" tasks and is the glue that binds the VIBE together. Randy's previous band work includes Vinnie and the Flat Tires, the Second Chance Band, the Daytonas and the Fudd Brothers (featuring Fred, Frank, Farley, Festus and Elmer). He is the founding father, chief counselor, equipment manager and operations manager of the Vibe. He is one lean, mean rhythm machine!! Always trying to stay active, Randy can also be seen playing with a new variety dance band based in Dauphin county, Block Party. Contact Randy Mark Johnson...We are delighted to re-introduce our "new" singer...someone familiar to the VIBE...enter yet another Mr. Johnson. Mark provided the lead vocals and rock 'n rollin' delivery for the VIBE from 2005 - 2010, and he helped us out in 2013. Originally from Lancaster County, he's played in several bands from the Lancaster and Reading area such as Zebec, Filthy Rich, TYZ, Wired, Times Square, Poetic Justice, Lost Lane Boys and Triple Shot. Keeping it all in the Johnson family name, we welcome Mark back to the VIBE family!! Jim Dolinski...A well-known and distinguished member of the music community, Jim has been performing with the Vibe (off and on) for the past 7 years. His first Vibe gig was memorable.....at Penn Sylvan Health Society. His guitar style and music background have been heavily influenced by classic rock, blues and jazz artists. Always one ready for a challenge, Jim has been a welcome addition to the Vibe and is able to roll with the punches We're so excited to have Jim back with the Vibe!! Kenny Play...Kenny keeps us in the bottom end (he owns the frequency domain known as the "sonic low B") and has provided vocal harmony and comic relief for the VIBE from the beginning. He also handles the sound, lights, road crew and security for the band...definitely a multi-tasker! Kenny was there in the beginning (first practice) for the Vibe's creation...and he was there through the end of 2007. Kenny has been my right-hand man onstage for 7 years, off and on. He re-joined the Vibe in September, 2009, to "fill-in" for the Fall and provide the bottom end groove, vocals, photography, lights and shennanigans; and he has continued to fill in whenever asked. He came back for the "original Vibe Reunion" in 2010, and then he re-re-joined the Vibe in March 2012. Always on the move and working the crowd, we appreciate Kenny's contribution to the Vibe groove and sound! Kenny loves getting email; so please email him here to say "hi Kenny"! Joe Bernat...is "on loan" from Smokin' Souls Band and assisting with the drumming responsibilities for the Vibe for most of our 2018 gigs. Joe resides in the Reading area. Among other bands, he played with Sonic and guitarist Jim McCauley (who was also a founding member of Vertigo Vibe). Joe brings a wealth of talent, some singing ability, and a relative balance to the Vibe. We are excited to welcome him. Rock on!!!
We wouldn't be having this much fun if it weren't for you!!!
You...who have come out to hear, support and encourage Vertigo Vibe...
So,"thanks" to all the wives, girlfrends, friends and "VIBE-rators"...
we do it for you...the smiling, happy, wild folks!!
