Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History.

Vibe VisionVibe HistoryGuest Vibers

Valerie and the Vibe Tribe was born in June 2000 at Ole Madrid in San Diego CA - I was a little intimidated to DJ all by myself for my virgin gig so I asked my groovy girlfriends to dress up as Goddesses with me and to "Vibe" the crowds and dance with everybody. We wanted to really create a sense of unity at the event so we handed out flowers to everyone. It was a great success and we were written up in the SD Union Tribune as one of the 5 featured female DJs in their special 5 page article! Cool first gig!

First Show Ever!

Summer Solstice 2000

The girls and I had such a blast we decided to do it again 3 weeks later for a phat Summer Solstice event in the forest. We dressed up as little Indian Princesses and rocked the forest! Our dear friend Ben-aaka Benny Bunny helped us come up with the name Valerie and the Vibe Tribe- We knew we liked the word Vibe and were thinking of Valerie and the Viberators but we knew that was gay and needed some serious help! Thank Goddess for Benny Bunny!

Always Growing!

Over the past 4 years our original concept of having the girls in costume "Vibing" the crowds at the DJ events has evolved into a much more elaborate, professional, and artistic performance. Now in addition to DJing and "Vibing" we incorporate vocals, samples, and flute, and the Vibe Tribe are all professional performance artists combining fire, aerial, choreography, elaborate costumes, stilts, acrobatics, body-balancing, kung-fu stunts, live visual projections, and sometimes the occasional tribal drumming into our interactive performances.

Costumes from the Early Years
