Live funk, R&B, and hip-hop band: Jaewar & Vibe Riot with master turntablist Djbe Cope, and special guests. Dance parties, music, art, fashion, & photography. Movers, shakers, creatives, taste-makers. Artistic expression honoring individuality while uniting our community. Good Funkin' Vibes!
Jaewar & Vibe Riot is an East Coast indie band fusing funky groovy kaleidoscope attitudes, charisma, and retro-sonic aesthetics with heavy drum and bass. Wrap an infectious chemistry around Afro-Cuban percussion, jazzy guitar licks, bebop piano, and wailing saxophone, and the powerful vocals of Jaewar, Xe Jah'Twi, DiVA, or Nina Mallia and you just might recreate something like Vibe Riot.
Additionally, Vibe Riot is committed to sharing the love through annual events like Vibe Fest, a two-part music festival series at IX Art Park in Charlottesville, VA. During this event, they share the stage with talented performers of all ages and career stages, fostering a true sense of community and support among artists.
Jaewar & Vibe Riot’s positive message and sultry dance-able sound have made them a perfect fit at Vibe Fest, Tom Tom Fest, Floyd Fest, Fridays After Five, Disco Vibes, CaribFest, 1,000,000 Women's March, Levitt AMP series, LAUNCH Music, African American Heritage Festivals, & Pride Fest.
