Soul Vibrator has been a mainstay of the Eugene, Oregon funk scene for half a decade. Formed fresh out of high school, the founding members began by jamming at local open mics to form songs and hone their skills. After spending a couple years writing and playing shows, Soul Vibrator entered the local “Eugene Weekly’s Next Big Thing” contest and won, earning time at a local studio. Between 2014-15 they recorded and released their debut album Electric Stardust. Realizing that their next record needed to be more polished and streamlined Soul Vibrator began writing and furiously playing shows at local venues and events. Over the course of the next few years they would share the stage with Turkuaz, Monophonics, Moon Hooch, Polyrhythmics, Dirtwire (feat. members of Beats Antique), Ripe, and The Dip. In 2017 Soul Vibrator realized one of their goals by playing Main Stage at the fabled Oregon Country Fair.

Soul Vibrator expanded upon their previous funk roots by incorporating soul, R&B and hip-hop into their lexicon, as well some aspects of more progressive music. After numerous ensemble changes they finally settled on Zeviel Kamrat (lead guitar/vocals), Samira Lobby (lead vocals/dance moves), Miles Albert (bass), Max Pinder (keys/vocals), and Sam Fox Hayward (drums) with various horn players filtering through their ranks. With a constantly evolving live show, their energy continues to draw crowds as they prepare for the upcoming self-titled release. The future is bright with tours and fresh music on the horizon.

This is going to be one funky fun show at Civic’s Evening in the Wine Garden. Be sure to make your way down for this show!

There will be food provided by Sammitch food cart, our outdoor bar serving up delicious wines and beers, a play area for the kiddos, and music to jam to!
