Vybe was formed in 2002 after the expiration of a group called Virtuous. Vybe started as a R&B cover band, which performed weekly at J's Sport Cafe in Laurel, Md. Eventually Vybe layered their R&B sound over D.C.'s GO-GO pocket. The streets of D.C. calls this style 'Pocket Jazz' or 'Grown & Sexy', but they just call it music. Vybe's sound is heavily influenced by 'The Godfather of GO-GO', the late Chuck Brown.
