Outer Vibe's recording for the 2019 BackStage Pass Concert Series in the WKAR Studio.

WATCH NOW at video.wkar.org | Watch this three person band rock the WKAR stage!

Born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, band members Lisa Kacos (drums/trumpet), Sean Zuidgeest (vocals/bass), and Nick Hosford (guitar) studied classical music in college while packing dance floors throughout the Midwest. The trio’s singular mission is to make rock 'n' roll fun again by incorporating the best elements of 90s pop, swagger rock, reggae, feel-good anthems, and hip-hop. Zuidgeest's powerful, yet sometimes delicate vocals echo the best of Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant, while Kacos and Hosford punch hard and groove effortlessly as the band's genre-defying powerhouse rhythm section.
