Champaign-Urbana’s own Of A Native Vibe supply a fresh face and new attitude to the
R & B hits of the days gone by. Beyond covers of recognizably classic soul tunes, the group also performs a number of original tracks that are just as soon to become worthy additions to the sound of local R & B.
Comprised of Charity Davis on vocals, Ben Pierre on bass, James Hunter on keys, Jake Stimmel on guitar, and Darren Warren on percussion, Of A Native Vibe brings a raw combination of soul, funk, hip-hop, and R & B to the forefront of any stage the band is able to grace.
Citing influences ranging from Marvin Gaye and the Isley Brothers, to Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu, Of A Native Vibe has their eyes and ears on both the legendary soul singers of yesterday, and the current crop of talented men and women in R & B.
The five-piece performs Friday, Nov. 20 at the Cowboy Monkey in downtown Champaign. Joined by DJ Delayney, Of A Native Vibe takes the stage at 10:00 p.m. for the free concert.
