Building on Michigan's storied rock and pop legacy, The Outer Vibe has long pushed the envelope for live performances with its ultra-animated stagecraft, audience-involving antics, infectious beats and never-ending supply of resplendent stagewear. This is a band that built its own cutting-edge recording studio north of Grand Rapids just so it could further polish catchy pop and alternative rock songs which echo influences as far-ranging as Maroon 5 and Muse to Queen and Led Zeppelin. This road-tested band plays more than 100 shows a year, sharing stages along the way with the likes of REO Speedwagon, The Tubes, Mayday Parade, We The Kings, and more. It's a band that never stops exploring and expanding the boundaries of its own pop music. The Outer Vibe has independently earned regional acclaim, growing radio airplay, a burgeoning fan base and a street team numbering 1,500-plus in eight states and five countries.
