The Outer Vibe are ready to make waves in Cedar Rapids

The Outer Vibe

Parlor City Pub — Sun., Jan. 10 at 4 p.m.

This self-described “cinematic surf disco” ensemble from Grand Rapids, MI takes the stage at Cedar Rapids’ Parlor City Pub for a Sunday afternoon set.

These five musicians (Nick Hosford, lead guitar; Sean Zee, vocals; Lisa Kacos, trumpet, keys; Andrew “Wonderboy” Dornoff, bass; and Noah Snyder, drums) put their friendship in the foreground as they perform, and view each show as a chance to bring new friends into the fold.

They released their 4th full-length album, Full Circle, in June. Known for their raucously delightful live shows, The Outer Vibe has a hard-to-pinpoint sound that is best described as sheer energy.
