While there’s a lot that probably comes to mind, music-wise, when you think of Hawaii, reggae likely isn’t the first thing. But Natural Vibrations, (aka Natural Vibes, aka Natty Vibes) might change that. The band bills itself as “Hawaii’s most popular and acclaimed band from the Winward side of O’ahu,” and in their 17 years as a band, they’ve released six albums and shared stages with Prince, 311, Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley, UB40, Jack Johnson, Pepper and SOJA.

“The same sound and vibe that has earned them the respect of some of reggae’s biggest names has also brought them multiple Best Reggae Album and People’s Choice awards at the Hawaii Music Awards and Hawaii’s prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano awards,” says press for the group.

They bring their unique Hawaiian reggae sound to Pisgah Brewing (as part of a coast-to-coast tour) on Wednesday, March 13. 9 p.m., $7 in advance/$10 day of show.
