The Island Vibe band performs their style of island grooves and variety throughout Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. From Jimmy Buffet, Zac Brown Band, country, reggae, authentic Caribbean tunes, and some good old rock & roll, there is sure to be something for everyone. Whether it’s a laid back feeling or get up and dance style that you are looking for, Island Vibe will have you saying, “I can feel it!” So come on and let the island sounds of Rod and Doug take you away. Rod is on guitar and vocals while Doug handles congas, percussion, steel drum and vocals. From the big stage at Fort Wayne’s Three Rivers Festival, the Put-in-Bay party island, to the deck in your backyard, Island Vibe will keep the party jumping and everyone feeling “irie” (Jamaican for really, really good)!
